I graduated from school about a year ago and have been working as a
independent freelance web designer. I am in the process of doing some
career planning and would really appreciate all of your feedback, as I
would imagine there also many other people out there like me.
Basically, I received a design education (BFA @ The School of Visual
Arts) and have been a tinkerer in Web Design since high school
(1998). Since then, I have followed new technology, studied and
learned new web programming, worked in a small
interactive/communications design studio, and have been trying to
learn all I can about careers in Interaction and Digital Design.
My goal for September is to be starting my career at an Interactive
Studio or Agency in New York or San Francisco.
My Questions are:
1. What Interactive Job titles should I be applying for? or which are
most suitable for someone with 1-2 years of professional experience in
Basic Programming and Front End Web Development?
2. Can you recommend any studios in NY or SF that would be good to
start a career in Interaction Design.
3. What professional and technical skills should be built upon before
applying to a Studio that works in Interaction design (web site
design, mobile applications, user interface, and interactive media.)
