UI Designer in Mansfield

UI Designer

User Interface Designers (UI Designer) differ from UX Designers in that they are responsible for taking the UX outputs (wireframes etc.) and concentrate on how best to layout the design for the platform/site.

They are in charge of designing each screen or page a user interacts with and ensuring that this delivers the best possible experience. Just like graphic designers, UI Designers have a real understanding of layout and typography albeit with a specialisation in digital channels / platforms.

Given the popularity of mobile devices, both UX and UI candidates must have experience in creating effective user experience and journeys across all desktop, mobile and tablet devices – responsive, cross-browser design experience is therefore essential. The boundary between UI and UX designers is fairly blurred and it is not uncommon for companies to opt to combine these roles.

Salary wise outside of London the role generally pays between £30,000 to £45,000 depending on regional variance and level of experience.

Mansfield

Mansfield is a traditional 700-year-old market town with heritage and culture in abundance. It’s home to Mansfield Town Football Club who are known locally as the Stags; their traditional rival is the nearby town of Chesterfield Football club and their rivalry is famed with their derby considered among the fiercest in the entire lower leagues of the UK.

Every year Mansfield District Council hosts an event called Summer in the Streets, a music festival in the summer months consisting of children's entertainment, fairground rides in the market square, hands on workshops for things like crafts & circus skills.

D. H. Lawrence, in Lady Chatterley's Lover, described Mansfield as "that once romantic now utterly disheartening colliery town" and in truth the area has been heavily influenced by its industrial past with coal mining and textiles thriving until their nationwide decline in the 1990s, but much has since been done to diversify the economic base and revive the town to its former industrious glory. Mansfield is the only local authority area in the county to have a directly elected Mayor and in October 2008 Mansfield elected its first Youth Mayor.
