Why UX is the Next Big Thing and How to Succeed as a Designer

Take a peek into the future of UX and get tips on how to succeed as a designer during our first TCG Buzz Break interview on Jan. 16.

It pays to have user experience (UX) skills, literally. According to The Creative Group's 2014 Salary Guide, UX designers can expect a 7.5 percent increase over 2013 starting salary levels. That's a bigger jump than any of the 125+ positions featured in the guide!

Agencies and in-house creative teams actively seek UX professionals to help with a growing number of online projects. So, if you want to improve your marketability as a designer, it's in your best interest to acquire UX skills. Luckily, we have a great place to start.

Join us for our first TCG Buzz Break, an interview series with creative industry leaders, on Thursday, Jan. 16, at 2 p.m. ET/11 a.m. PT. Special guest and master designer Jose Caballer will join TCG executive director Diane Domeyer to discuss:

  • The role of UX in 2014
  • Sharpening your UX skills and building new ones
  • Landing the job of your dreams
