Calling all web students – did you know…

… that UX designers are commanding high salaries at the moment?

User Experience

So, all you people taking, or interested in User Interaction / Experience / Interface / Design, you’ll find employers are particularly looking for individuals who can perform (and I quote) the following:

“YOU MUST BE A RUTHLESS DESIGNER ABLE TO POINT OUT A POOR DESIGN AND EXPLAIN HOW YOU CAN MAKE IT BETTER. WE ARE LOOKING FOR A CONFIDENT, NATURAL LEADER”

You could just end up with a salary of up to 70k if this subject is your kind of thing! See the full list of  See UI Designer Jobs.

Research for designing a skiing app

Level 5 Multimedia and Games Design students undertook research for a Ski App they are developing as part of their studies. To help understand what skiing is all about they had a Ski lesson on the dry slope in Gloucester. Grasping the pain that skiers go through every time they put their ski boots on was an important part of the day.

Great weather for our research trip to establish the ergonomic issues with mobile devices and skiing!

After we’d taken off those agonising ski-boots we all looked quite cheerful, even poor Chris with the ice-pack after a contretemps with the ski-tow! Nina remembered that she goes skiing regularly – every 20 years!

The tutors, Nina, Paul & Lewis, joined in by taking part in the activity as well! The best Ski App’s will be displayed at COMX14 on 1st May 2014. See http://comx.glos.ac.uk for more details.
