There’s no denying that the mobile technology industry is moving at breakneck speeds. If you’re looking for the latest and best information on working in the mobile design and development space, The Onward Search Career Cast is a great resource. In the latest episode, Terra Dehnert from the new Onward Search San Francisco office talks with Career Cast host Peter Clayton about what she’s seeing in the field, for both working mobile designers and the companies that want to hire them!
Are you interested in the latest trends for Android and iOS development? iPads and the emerging tablet platforms? In this podcast we take you to the city that’s considered the national hub of technological innovation: San Francisco!
To start, Terra and Peter cover the basics of the mobile interface design field, like how to break in to it and what skills are needed the most to stay competitive as a designer. Terra advises creating a project of your own and doing everything you can to learn all about the field and the industry. It also helps to build solid relationships with developers who can turn your designs into functioning applications that you can share with the world.
On the other side of the table, there are the companies that want to bring their products and services to the masses via mobile devices. What about them? How should they approach the process of “going mobile”? Terra breaks down the steps from audience and platform research to deciding whether to go with native platform app or a mobile compatible web app. I highly recommend downloading and listening to the episode or reading the transcript for all the details on that part.
Terra shares her thoughts on where tablet devices fit into the mobile space and how crucial testing and prototyping are to successful mobile interface designs. She also dives into all the hot jobs the San Francisco office is working to fill right now, so tune in for those details as well!
With all that industry insight, this is an episode of Career Cast that will benefit anyone in the mobile design industry, whether you’re trying to break in, move ahead in your career, or find the talent that will make your company’s app the next destination on someone’s Smartphone.
