Are you a passionate user champion with great problem solving skills and a good dose of psychology? Good news: AllofUs is looking for a mid-weight to senior User Experience (UX) Designer to work across a wide range of exciting projects.
Today our Lead Project Manager, Sarah Gautier, headed down to Skinners' Acadmey to speak to the students about AllofUs and the world of Project Management. Sarah was most impressed with the well behaved students (no back chat and all listened intently), as well as their attention to detail - immediately spotting the swear word included on one of her slides, whoops! It was a refreshing approach to career's advice, with people invited in to talk about what they do, and hopefully have inspired the project managers of tomorrow!
We're always happy to share our experiences with students, especially at the institutions that got us started and over the next few months we have a lot of talks and lectures lined up for various members of the studio. Kicking this off were Kam and Marie, two of our visual designers, who were invited to Nottingham Trent University to give a presentation about the type of work we do here at AllofUs and how we go about it.
Kam and Marie were keen to convey the AllofUs philosophy of always putting the user at the heart of any project and explaining the breadth of work that we encounter here. They showed the students that being a digital designer isn't just about websites and if you'd like to know what they mean, then check out some of our projects to see just how varied the AllofUs portfolio is.
Interesting article on Yota Play, now known as Play, and their plans for the future. It is great to see Play go from strength-to-strength and is now Russia's most successful video-on-demand service. You can read more about our involvement in building this service here.
We have just completed a series of videos and installations to mark the launch of the MAST Foundation, a new institute established by owner of innovation-based industrial solutions group Coesia, Isabella Seràgnoli, in Bologna, Italy.
We have been tasked with designing and building three interactive exhibits for the Industrial Focus Area, which is part of the MAST Foundation’s new cultural centre. The centre will open fully next year, exploring the innovations in electro-mechanical engineering and motion. - See more at: ibbonline.com
The videos give you a little taste of what’s to come as we are busy developing the full Interactive experiences as we speak. Each Interactive will take visitors through a different engagement that starts with "Move It", a truly interactive journey that allows visitors to design different gears through multitouch and object recognition. "Wrap It" will allow visitors to be a chocolate manufacture, wrapping the chocolates to meet consumer demand... stay tuned as they develop further.
Last week we jetted off to Zurich airport to install our interactive installation 'LAI' for Ballantine's, in collaboration with Work Club. The refreshed experience allows travellers to create their own unique impression using colour, motion, proximity and shape. A unique, printed code then lets people share their impression at the integrated popup bar and suggests a Ballantine's whisky cocktail. All images are automatically uploaded and shared on the LAI gallery. The installation runs in the departures lounge until September.
Jem, Head of Visual Design, continues to share her knowledge with the wider world, this time round it's Digital Arts and how to get started in the design industry for all aspiring designers, as well as an inspiring talk (the students words not ours!) to the students at Loughborough University School of the Arts on creative careers and managing your online presence.
