Bachelor of Design

Graduates of Humber's user experience (UX) design-focused Bachelor of Design program are prepared to design for the ways people use technology every day. By studying both design thinking and practical UX processes and deliverables, graduates can critically engage with our rapidly changing technological world. Graduates have a people-first approach, applying principles of human-centered design and research to solve problems, and demonstrate curiosity, resilience and empathy for end-users as a means to find creative solutions to the many challenges faced in modern technology culture.

Graduates have advanced capabilities in design tools and methods, communications, user interface design (UI), visual literacy, digital technology, qualitative research, creativity and innovation, interaction design, and service design. They have experience applying evidence-based design and research methods to services and digital projects, including websites, apps, VR/AR/MR, Voice UI and other emerging interfaces, and have worked on projects for corporate, not-for-profit and civic environments.

My name is Sarah. I'm a life-long creative with a strong desire for learning and growth. I'm a curious creative thinker, a problem solver and a solution creator. My purpose is to create impactful change and value through design. I have experience with a variety of digital design practices, including UX, UI, graphic design, responsive web design and interaction design.

I am Polish-Canadian and I speak both languages fluently. I have a background in graphic design, which lead me toward UX/UI design. I love interactive design since it gives me a peek into the human mind. Understanding human behaviour and the why that goes into design is something that has always interested me.

Brett Kellar

I originally was going to go into a graphic design program; however, I didn't feel too passionate for it. It wasn't until I took some time off and researched the idea of design programs that I discovered user experience design. I chose to go into this program and ended up falling in love with it. I believe design is the one tool we have to truly make a difference in this world.

I find the motivation and excitement in exploring the uncertainty and ambiguity of our human knowledge, and of the design-thinking process. Some of my accomplishments include: Best Prototype award in a Humber and UCL Denmark Design Charrette (2019), Best Innovative Idea in a Humber and City of Toronto Design Charrette (2020), and working on an interactive storytelling experience, called A Way Closer, with Humber Galleries for Nuit Blanche (2021).
