Whether you’re a beginner or seasoned design professional, if you want to work with the cutting edge technology and looking to develop your career in the Web3 space then this is the right place to be. You will gain fundamental knowledge in order to begin your journey as a Web3 Designer.

Furthermore, through some practical examples you will learn how to approach technical aspects of blockchain protocols and look through a lens of a Web3 designer at the implications technical constraints have to the user experience, and the decisions you have to make during the design process.
