What are the typical tasks of a UX designer? We would like to answer this question to interested students from the „Institut für Multimediale und Interaktive Systeme“ (Institute for Multimedia-based and Interactive Systems (IMIS)) at the University of Lübeck within an all-day excursion.
After having a short glance around the Hamburg office, we presented the diversity of our jobs at Ergosign: from context analysis to the fully developed design, we have illustrated our practical experience on the basis of many exciting project examples and anecdotes. Following, in a relaxed atmosphere with pizza and some kicker matches, quickly questions about possibilities of theses, internships and entry opportunities came up.
In the second part of the day the students themselves were asked: in a creative workshop, many ideas for a given design challenge were collected and refined in a team. In this way, we were able to present the students a typical approach from our project day in a practical way and to convey the fun of the creative work.
We also liked the day and we look forward to the next excursion!
