UX Training and Hiring
Fuzzy Math’s UX design training can help you kickstart a new team, or align an existing team around an optimized design practice.
Our training services distill what we’ve learned over our 10+ years as Chicago’s premier UX design provider, tailored to the needs and proficiency of your team.
Clients We’ve Trained
Our training has been applied across a number of different industries, team sizes, and customer backgrounds. All of our content is based on our real-world expertise as practitioners of design, leveraging our own UX case studies to provide deep insight into the actual application of UI/UX design and product strategy. Your team will learn from the same people who implement the design process for our clients.
While the foundation of our training curriculum is shared, the specific topics, content, format, exercises, and discussions are highly customized to meet your needs.
Get the most out of your UX design team
Many organizations have made an investment in design, but most have yet to realize the full benefits that design can bring. We’ll help you evaluate where you’re at today, and develop an action plan uniquely suited to your goals.
How UX Training Can Elevate Your Team
- Become a customer-oriented team
- Gain insight from curriculum based on real-world experience
- Receive customized content for your team & organization
- Learn from career design practitioners, not professional speakers
- Build practical skills for immediate impact
- Develop long-term plans to advance your organization
- Participate in team-building through practice & pragmatism
Optimize your UX team
A high functioning design team is comprised of people with a clear understanding of their role, able to work autonomously or alongside other designers, using a familiar and standardized set of tools toward a common purpose. If this doesn’t sound like your team yet, don’t worry — we’ll help you get there.
Based on a thorough understanding of your team, and your goals, we’ll tailor a training program designed uniquely to your needs. Whether your team is full of experienced designers wanting to refine their skills, or you want to develop UX skills for non-designers, our UX training program will provide hands-on workshops, easy-to-use documentation and templates, and ongoing support to help you realize your goals.

We can even help you interview and evaluate prospective UX hires, providing insight from over a decade of design and hiring experience.
