Recently, I came across this course at NTU, Singapore: 'Master of Arts In Interactive Design' (which borrows faculty from Domus for the workshop phase of the course). But I have no idea of the market for IxD in Singapore and am wondering whether I should take this up.
I am in the process of a career transition. I currently work in Digital Asset Management, and am enrolled in a Library/Info Science Masters program (one with some IxD, or related, offerings). I also have a visual design background. I am NOT a 20-something/right out of college.
We have an immediate need for a contract Flash Prototyper here in New York City. It will be onsite and for a minimum of 3 weeks of full-time work.
You will be building interfaces in Flash with tons of actionscript. The ability to follow direction to the letter and be quick about it. We are a fun group of senior level interaction design architects.
Pay is very competitive and no need to be a guru as long as you have a fluent understanding of the prototype process.
Email me with your portfolio of flash interfaces, firstname.lastname@example.org.
I've been in the UX field for 3+ years now but I keep hitting a series of bumps (starting with a layoff in 2009) that have prevented me from expanding my professional design portfolio. The majority of my professional work has revolved around usability evaluation and user research, although I have done some design work professionally, on the side, and in grad school. For the past year, my professional work has focused on usability testing and user research.
I'm researching UX salaries in the US, and wondering if there are any good suggestions out there!
So far I've found the UPA's 2009 Salary Survey (free version) and AIGA 2010 Salary Survey to be helpful. The respondents in the UPA Salary Survey are mostly from Advertising and Software companies, and the AIGA sample set seems more general design oriented, less about UX. I'm especially interested in UX Designer and Director level salaries for cutting edge multimedia products/companies.
