What if you are already a graphic designer?
Marco Perez Much less time if you focus on the gaps you need to fill. You’ll need to focus more on strategy and user feedback skills and should be able to pick up UI/product design more quickly with an existing design background. Depends on what role or environment you want to be in though.
hi MikeWhen you say about building strong portofolios for UI/UX design, you talking about building the whole website or just the design of the end product and the process of building that design product.
Great motivational/career advice video Mike! Good as always.
<Love it />
I don’t know if it’s good or not but your course took me from not knowing what the heck UI/UX was to projects.invisionapp.com/share/4FJ62NL7Z9T in 15 days!
Great progress after 15 days of my course. Everyone's different. You'll continue to fine-tune the small details but love this. Great job.
Great video Mike! I feel like everyone can learn it much faster/slower depending on their pace and consistency on doing new projects. It's all about consistency at the end of the day and always keep learning and consuming great content ! 😀
How do you feel about the immersive courses via a bootcamp through say Galvanize or General Assembly? I was apart of a cohort that ended about two months ago (Denver, CO) for a 10 week course and seems like we're all getting jobs in the field as either juniors or regular UX Designers.
General Assembly is not bad, live interaction with people really helps. But 10-weeks is nowhere near enough time to take someone with no experience to job ready. No way. Landing a job in a UX Design role after 10 weeks, I assume they've had prior experience in design or tech in some capacity.
How do I build multiple portfolios when I have no experience?
After learning the essentials of UI/UX Design, what I teach is to build up your portfolio using concept work. That is, you come up with an idea for an app or website, then design it and document your process. Do this 3 to 4 times and you have a solid portfolio. Visit my site www.mluxacademy.com to learn more and feel free to email any other questions.
I’ve been at it 7+ years and I’m now 37 years old but I still cant seem to land that first job in a doing UI/UX design for a digital design agency. But it’s all I want to in my career. Am I doomed?
Ok thanks Mike, appreciate that, you can check it out at www.behance.net/deanconway
MrConway007 – Nah, you just might need to tweak a few things. Haven't seen your work, but my guess is that your visual design skills needs tweaking. Just a guess. Shoot me your portfolio and I'll give you my honest opinion.
