02.03.2023 | 1 min read
Why should your IT company care for good in-house product design skills? Partly because AI won’t replace product designers anytime soon, but mainly because it’s through good design that your product can bring about your value proposition. 10Clouds Design Team members Maciej Grątkowski and Agnieszka Zygmunt have just joined EY’s Academy of Business to lead essential courses on product design. If you are eager to bring more skill to the firm, here is your big chance.
There are two product design courses led by 10Clouds’ experts currently available at the EY Academy of Business. They will provide you with substantial knowledge on how to improve the marketability of your digital product and offer more to your customers, based on hard market data. There is a good reason why you should consider taking both.
First, Maciej Grątkowski, our Lead Product Designer, will teach you the basics of UX design and show how to successfully apply UX rules in your own practice.
“Participation in this course is your structured entry into the subject of usable design. You will receive knowledge, materials and guidance from a specialist, which will allow you to wrap your head around this broad issue, and to consciously continue building your competences. The practical part of the course will allow you to assimilate and apply selected techniques in everyday work, right after the training has ended. For dessert - a few tips from my own experience on how to develop your career and what mistakes to avoid at the start” - says Maciej.
Second, Agnieszka Zygmunt, our Lead UX Researcher, will explain why testing digital products is crucial and how to correctly validate your ideas.

1. I’m interested in learning The Basics of UX Design
2. I’d like to know how Testing of Digital Products works

Why is product design important to companies?
Product design is not just important, but essential for IT companies. It enables businesses to set themselves apart from competitors and to build meaningful relationships with customers. We’ve seen it time and time again. Product design helps create a unique experience for customers and drives more sales. Additionally, it allows IT companies to develop products that are tailored to customer needs and provide solutions to problems. Finally, it helps IT companies build a recognizable brand identity and create a strong presence in the market. None of that can be achieved without good UX and proper product validation.
By taking part in the Basics of UX Design course:
- You will understand the basic issues tackled by the UX Design process: usability, User Centered Design, design process (Learn – Build – Measure model)
- You will structure your domain knowledge in the field of UX design
- You will learn the basic tools (digital, workshop, conceptual) used on a daily basis during design work
- You will learn about standards, best practices and design patterns
You will outline further paths of professional development, learn about valuable sources of domain knowledge and information channels
The course has been divided into five comprehensive modules:
- Theory – the basics of UX design and the design process
- Information architecture and user flow
- Wireframes – the basics
- UX design patterns and best practices
By taking the Testing of Digital Products course:
- You will gain practical knowledge of the main validation tests
- You will learn to independently conduct basic research using a ready-made process tailored to the needs of your project
- You will learn the mechanism of risk minimization by testing products
- You will learn the key elements that determine proper testing, as well as the most common pitfalls and research mistakes
It’s the perfect follow-up if you work as a Product Manager and lead projects, or you are a part of a team that develops new products.
