Why become a UI Designer?

 

Imagine being passionate about your job, using your creativity, working on interesting projects, and earning a high salary.

 

Maybe you are bored at your current job. Maybe you feel stuck with no room to grow, or perhaps you wish you had the option to work remotely or even freelance. If any of these sound like you, it may be time to make a change.

 

UI designers love making beautiful interfaces 

UI intersects psychology, design and technology. It's the extremely powerful art of creating visually pleasing, highly intuitive user experiences.

 

As a UI designer, you’ll work with a multidisciplinary team of designers, developers, and marketers to realize your projects.

UI designers come from many different backgrounds

While many UI designers come from a career in graphic or product design, we have found that anyone can become a successful UI designer if they apply themselves. For example, we have many successful graduates who used to work in marketing, sales, teaching, customer service, finance, architecture, HR, IT, and art.


Whatever your background, it’s likely that you have transferable skills which can be applied to UI design. Your dedicated Career Specialist will help you to identify these skills. 

A study by job-board Indeed found that 84% of employers think bootcamp grads are ‘more prepared’ or ‘just as prepared’ to be high performers as degree holders. (Indeed)

UI designers are in high demand

Employers struggle to find qualified UI designers, and the demand keeps growing. The average Junior UI Designer salary in the United States is $74,953 per year while Senior UI Designers can earn as much as $107,086 (Glassdoor Salaries Report, 2018)

 

UI designers are constantly evolving

The technology industry moves quickly, and UI designers are constantly learning and advancing in their careers.

 

There is practically no limit to how much you can improve your skills and advance in your career as a UI designer.  

The technology industry keeps on growing, and with it, the demand for UI designers. According to a PayScale survey, User Interface Designers can expect a job growth rate of 27% from 2014-2024.

UI designers can work in many types of companies

As a UI designer, you have opportunities to work for startups, agencies, large corporates, or even freelance. You can also often work remotely and choose where you want to be.

 

UI Designers are shaping the future

From self-driving cars to the "Internet of Things", designers are shaping the products and services around us and consequently changing the way technology and the world works.

 

UI designers are empowered to make a difference.
