Sitewide-Black Friday728x90
November is my favorited month because it is associated with the coming of winter. Due to the climate change, this association isn’t accurate, but at least in my subconscious, it is still working. Another reason why you should like November is Black Friday! It’s not a romantic argument, but it’s still a reasonable one!
I prepared for you a few amazing surprises, deals, and discounts for Black Friday. Starting with October 14, Daniel2Design should be visited constantly if you hunt for killing offers! Udemy, Skillshare, and other online course providers are ready to offer amazing Black Friday discounts.
As I promised in the first post of “Best online courses for designers and developers – September edition”, I will continue to showcase the newest online courses destined for designers and developers. Here is the second edition! All of the below courses are truly useful, full of interesting ideas and actionable tips & tricks.

Move from Graphic Designer to UX DESIGNER

Move from Graphic Designer to UX DESIGNER
Provider: Skillshare
Duration: 2 hours 30 minutes
Price: Premium
Unlike Udemy and other online courses providers, Skillshare has a different pricing plan. You are unable to pay to enroll in for a course; instead, you should pay a monthly subscription to get full access to all the courses.
I purposely added on the first position this course. It is the essence of online teaching – learning new things adjacent to your set of skills. In our situation, learning UX design when you are a graphic designer. The course is truly useful because the job boards are full of amazing opportunities for UX designers while the graphic designers have significantly fewer jobs. To be honest, I signed up for the course, but I watched only the first ten videos. The first impression is that the course is well done and you learn a lot of things that are useful for your future career as UX designer.
