Advanced web design, or user experience/user interface design uses information architecture, is essential to good web design in the modern economy.  How users enjoy their web design experience today depends on several factors, which are found in top Fortune 500 websites, and applications built by top agencies across the world.  All websites have key elements like navigation, organized content, hierarchy and design of user interaction (Chestnut & Nichols).

These IA elements blossom into life through the process of designing of developing websites and applications.  Websites and web applications which have solid UX/UI and sound wireframes have created good business in the past several years, and ensured that top American companies like Walmart have made huge profits (Chestnut & Nichols).

Igniva has top trends for 2017 and next year.

Implementing top technologies has enabled Fortune 500 companies in the USA to reap huge profits, albeit the cost of professionals from other countries.  High-technology has no mercy, and is constantly evolving to meet users’ demands.

As a result of high-technology being implemented across USA’s businesses, the American stock market is changing, finally moving the country out of depression into 2018.

It will be interesting to see how the USA deals with talented foreign workers as a majority of companies continue to use top UX/UI designers and developers from both America and overseas, skilled in high-tech for the information architecture of their desktop/mobile websites and applications, and if the world will ever be the same again.

Advertising Through Digital Mediums Makes Billions

Advertising in the USA is controlled by tech giants, Google and Facebook

Advertising is surprisingly a huge market in the USA, which is controlled by Google and Facebook.  Social media today, allows for a mass sharing of information, which makes business instant, and transparent (Wagner, 2015).

Advertisers are generating a ton of revenue using social media tools, and are getting more advanced with new social media analytics tools, which have the ability to predict trends in social media consumer behavior.

Consumerism has taken over America, and Amazon.com is the go-to-place for all kinds of stuff. In fact, “52%” of American’s have Amazon Prime today (Galloway). 

It’s “scary fast”…

Co-working at EdgyWorks in Mid-town Manhattan

Co-Working in the Heart of the Alley

Why co-working is beneficial to talented professionals in NYC.

co-working

Co-working spaces have sprung up rapidly in USA’s most populous cities in the past decade. In the past few years technology, Web development, UX/UI development, and Java development, and Mobile-Desktop-App development has taken off rapidly after the recession. People who work on technology like these can benefit from co-working.

The EverythingStore, Facebook, and applications for America’s Fortune 500 stores were important milestones for application development, and UX/UI development in the last decade.   Check out Walmart.com, and Costco.com. The technology powering these applications has been changing rapidly every since.

Bootcamps to teach people technology skills so that they can work for these companies, have sprung up rapidly across the USA, making enormous profits, but still, many college and university graduates lack the critical thinking and programming skills necessary to succeed in the real world. Many professionals lack the critical thinking and knowledge of common technology to keep up with the current technology. In the last decade, thousands of immigrants from foreign countries have come overseas to thrive in the Silicon Valley and the Tech Alley, and have computer science degrees.

The tech scene in NYC is a constant hub of activity. It’s sprawling.

Google has expanded into Brooklyn, and NYC is thriving with all types of coders, self-taught, bootcamp coders, traditional coders, and novice coders, as well as UX/UI Designers, and media experts.

However, what is unfortunate is that there are thousands of people who need to access to actual work who work in technology. People with some to a lot of tech skills, that could improve them by working on projects at a co-working center.

Calling recruiters is hard and time-consuming. So is applying for jobs. The tech market is huge in the USA. It’s a much better idea to spend even a day at a co-working space, especially in Manhattan. Here, there an opportunity for experienced individuals to help others on real-world projects and grow their technology skills effectively without feeling pressured by desperate and sleazy technical recruiters.

For example, the current skills/job description required of UX/UI designers today are something like this.

Experience designing e-commerce or other large-scale digital experiences for mobile and web (mobile first)

Bonus points for knowledge of HTML, CSS table-less design and JavaScript

Strong conceptual thinking with an ability to understand customer needs, motivations and behaviors and translate them into actionable deliverables

Help customers achieve goals more efficiently and effectively through the creation of storyboards, user scenarios, wireframes, diagrams, and prototypes

Ruthless pursuit of customer delight and happiness’

Test design solutions with intended audience and refine based on findings and develop A/B tests to validate key hypothesis

Strong attention to detail and highly developed organizational skills including the ability to prioritize tasks and meet deadlines

Strong self-management skills as well as ability to work as a contributing member of a multi-discipline product team

A great attitude and a lack of ego. We work hard to keep a prima-donna free team

Experience in managing a design team

Synthesize requirements, technical constraints, user research, data and analytics into design solutions

Having all or most of these requirements is nearly impossible for most candidates. However, a posting like this has billions of applicants each day but applicants may not get any closure regarding their often beautifully crafted applications for days, weeks, months, years or at all.

Applying for jobs like these can be brutal in today’s world, although there is a plethora of bootcamps that proudly boast their crazy-good success rates, and claim they will get you a job after you walk in the door.

UX/UI designers can work, learn, share and study new skills in their respective fields, at fairly priced co-working centers, instead of lofty hotel-like co-working lounges that try and make you believe that they are doing you a big favor, when in reality, you know you are awesome!

No longer feel pressured by desperate and broke, technical recruiters that make you feel like shit. These idiots are just sucking the money out of the tech market like there’s no tomorrow. 

Actually benefit from invaluable connections with leading professionals, and people in your field who are more experienced, but are perhaps working from out of their company, and have time to enjoy your life! Co-working is important as technology transforms the US economy into 2018.
