ZURB University taught me the importance of having a well-defined design process and that product design is more than just pixels on a screen. Design strategy, ideation, sketching, wireframing, visuals and code create a holistic approach to product design.

Gaining this diverse skill set through University has opened up some amazing doors and opportunities for my career as a designer.
