Our story

Our story began in 2013 when Colman Walsh founded UXTraining.com, a specialist provider of user experience and design thinking training. Hugely popular, our training arm delivers classroom-based training in cities and companies across Europe and North America.

In 2017, we established the UX Design Institute, which has a broader remit to deliver in-depth UX education and certification. Our goal is to bridge the global skills gap in UX design, and to provide a career pathway for UX designers.
