Dive deeper into the world of Design
The profession of a “UX Designer” has quickly become one of the most sought-after positions in the world of technology. This is not that surprising. The various creative skills needed, the high degree of flexibility in project planning and last, but not least, the lucrative salary all make this role very rewarding.
When creating any digital project, the focus must now be on the user. Websites, marketing campaigns, posts and social content are all designed to offer a User Experience that encourages you to arrive, spend time, and guide you to convert on the site.
Dimitar Genov was a participant of the very first UX Design course happening in our Campus in Vienna. Read the interview to find out more about the course and its content, which experiences he liked most and the prototyping tool that totally blew his mind.
The demand for User Experience Design skills has never been higher. Increasingly, graphic designers, web developers, software engineers and product managers need to truly understand users before they can create the right solution. We interviewed Mark Swaine, an international product thought leader with a UX/CX background, working with tech startups and VCs internationally.
