So you want to be a UX designer…

A guide on how to get started

As a UX design manager at Opower, one of the most common questions
I’masked is:

How do I become a UX designer?

To help answer this question, I’ve been collecting online resources
and

stories—and now I’d like to share them with you.

哪开始

当一个以Opower工作的用户体验设计经理,我于咨询到之无比广大的一个题材虽是:“你是怎么成为一个用户体验设计师的?”

为帮助提问者们,我一直于大哥大当线资源与案例,现在本身甘愿拿她们分享给你们。

My path to becoming a UX designer

In the past eight years, I’ve gone from design student, to intern, to
job

applicant, to full-time designer. Currently I lead a UX team
atOpower, where
we use design to motivate people to save energy.For the past two
years, I’ve also taught interaction design to undergraduatesat the
California College of the Arts.

I started my journey as a mechanical engineering student interested
inproduct design. When I applied for college, I had never heard of UX
orinteraction design (I’ll use those terms interchangeably in this
article).After studying abroad and doing some UX internships, I
transitioned fromdesigning physical to digital products.

Times have changed though. The UX design industry has matured, as
captured

byJohn
Maeda’sDesign
in tech
reports.
Art schools are shifting their graphic and web design programs
tointeraction design. Venture capital firms are running internship
programs tomatch students with startups. And young designers now have
lots of mentors tohelp guide their career.

自我成同称用户体验设计师的路线

以过去之八年里,我自从筹划学生出发,到实习生,求职者,再到全职设计师。最近,我在Opower领到了用户体验团队,我们因此计划来鼓励人们节约能源的集团。最近星星点点年,我还在加利福尼亚大学的图案学院教学生们相互设计。

自我因为一个欣赏设计之电脑工程规范学生的身价开了本人之事业道路。在我申请大学时,我历来不曾耳闻了用户体验还是互相设计。在出境留洋和做了有的用户体验实习之后,我开始由情理设计转型到数码产品。

尽管时代变了,用户体验设计产业转换得成熟了,正使John
Meada在学期刊《Design in tech
reports》中所反映的一律。设计学院开始拿图片设计及网页设计类转移为彼此设计。风险投资公司还呢创业学生等被了见习项目,现在青春的设计师们好找到多底教职工来指导他们的职业生涯。

A guide to a UX design career

There are many well-trodden paths to becoming a UX designer. I’ve
createdthis framework, with resources below, to help you find your
own.

生许多老套的门路来成为同称呼用户体验设计师。我创建了这个框架和下的资源,来协助您。

1. Do you know what a UX designer does?

There are as many types of design as there are types of engineering.
Industrialdesign is different from UX design, just like mechanical
engineering isdifferent from computer science.

Before picking UX design, explore the range of other options. Look
intoindustrial design, visual/graphic design, design research, and
design strategy.Here are some online resources to help you understand
the differences betweendesign disciplines:

1、你掌握用户体验设计师是召开啊的呢?

发出过多品种的统筹,像工程设计、工业设计虽差为用户体验设计,就像机械工程不同让电脑对。

当选择用户体验设计前面,先扩大外选择的限。在工业规划、视觉/图像设计、设计研究、设计策略里面看看。有些在线资源会帮助而打探不同规划学科中的区别:

2. Are you passionate about UX design?

To gauge your interest in UX design, start immersing yourself in
UXcontent. Here are some classic books most people start with:

3. Do you have a design portfolio?

Mosthiring managers will spend more time reviewing your portfolio than
your resume.Look at some “best-of” portfolios to learn what’s
expected.

汝生计划性作品集吗?

具有一个作品集是得到一个用户体验设计职位的根本片段。比起你的立,绝大部分情欲经理会花更多时光浏览你的作品集。去押有些“最好的”作品集来学习而所要上的预期成效。

project’sdesign process before showing the final design. This
showcases not only designcraft, but also the designer’s problem
solving and storytelling abilities.

诸多设计师在亮最后的统筹时,使用一个描述了每个计划之宏图流程的案例上系统。这不仅仅展示了规划工艺,还显示了设计师解决问题同云故事之力量。

4. Where should you apply for your first job/internship?

Use your first job or internship as an opportunity to learn and grow.
Whenapplying for jobs, look for places where you will:

Learn from    great UX designers with the time and management
experience to mentor you.

Work on end    to end projects–from initial concept to shipping a
product.

Work on    variety of problems, platforms, and parts of the design
process.

Be pushed tocreate a lot of design
work.

Be valued.    Look for companies where design is a valued at the top
business levels.    These tend to attract the best designers and give
designers the time and    resources to do their best work.

若该以哪里申请你的第一客工作或实习?

应用好而的第一客工作或者实习来当读书与成人之根本机遇。当你申请工作经常,寻找你就要去之地方:

为出日及管理更的绝妙用户体验设计师学习来点你。

行为解决各种题材,抓住各种机会,参与规划流程的局部。

力图生产大量底计划性创作。

更换得起价。寻找那些设计以顶级业务规模产生价之庄。这些商家见面支持被诱惑无限好之设计师,并提供设计师时与资源来成功他们极好之做事。

Usually design firms and medium/large companies can provide these
thingsbetter than small start-ups. Growing mid-sized startups can be a
great place tolearn as well.
