Hi all, I'm new here. I have a few issues I keep running into. I want to pursue a career in interface design, but I don't know If my portfolio even stands out yet. My school does not have an extensive interface design side program, so I have only had maybe 2 courses in the field. I need advice on what I could do on my own to learn more from tutorial resources or even books. Maybe initiate my own personal projects? Any feedback can help! I'm just really confused on what to do as a student.
I need to create a visual design manual as part of a user interface guideline document for a software. Does anyone have any pointers? It would be great with some examples. Thus far I have only found corporate branding manuals online... And those are mostly describing letterheads and other printed material.
My job as a recruiter within this very specific area is made somewhat harder by the fact that it's becoming increasingly difficult to find fresh candidates for the roles I have to offer. Surely there's got to be more cracking Visual Designers out there looking for work?
As a fellow recruiter, or even as a generally helpful person, can anyone out there direct me to websites (such as behance) where users are free to browse profiles and contact their owners? Or perhaps, does anyone know of any good online communities of user interface designers ?
I am looking to hire a sr designer with a focus on user interface to help me rethink, redesign, and build the next MTV.com. This is a huge job with a lot of complex scenarios but has huge potential to enrich millions of users.
