Randall McCroskey's Portfolio Project
What inspired you to make a career change into the UI design field?
I wanted to pursue a career where I could use my creative brain. Analytical thinking, creative ideas, and attention to details drove my desire to pursue UI design. I also desired the opportunity to work remotely if needed.
What did you enjoy most about the animation course?
I enjoyed being part of a community of students along the same path supported by my tutor and mentor. It felt like a true learning experience with consistent feedback and guidance. Building on each assignment, I felt my skills increasing daily.
What did you enjoy about creating this project?
The Animation for UI Designers Course brought together all the concepts I had developed throughout the UI Design Program. Planning and executing a vision of interaction was very gratifying. After Effects was much less intimidating with the step by step lessons. By the end, I gained the confidence to bring my ideas to life through motion.
With regards to your new skills, what are your hopes for the future?
My goal is to continue to enhance my design and animation skills and join a team of designers to build products that make a difference in the lives of future users.
