A Day in the Life of a Visual Designer

  • 09 Feb 2017
  • 6:30 PM - 9:00 PM
  • Citrix, 120 S. West St., Raleigh, NC 27603

We’ve reached the end of the A Day in the Life Series!! Last, but definitely not least, we’ll be exploring the role of a Visual Designer!

In the UX field, visual designers focus on the visual aspects of the user interface (UI). They use design elements (colors, icons, patterns, etc.) to help enhance the hierarchy and interactions on a screen and to set the tone of the site or app. By nature, they also do some level of UX/interaction design. How much UX design they do can vary depending on the project or the company. Additionally, many visual designers focus on design standards to ensure parity across multiple products and brand consistency.

Join us as we welcome our speakers Adrienne Gajownik and Nancy Jin, Product Designers at Citrix as they provide more insight on their role.

We’ll also be doing a tour of the Citrix office as part of the evening!

RSVPing and the Waitlist

RSVP to the event here. We will close the RSVP list by noon on the day of the event. Please be kind to your fellow members and update your RSVP to “No” if you cannot attend the event. We know it’s easier to be less accountable for free events, but we really like to keep these events free to advocate for UX in the community. We really trying to avoid imposing a fee or a 3-strikes policy to hold people accountable.

If the event fills up, you will automatically be put on the waitlist. If someone changes their RSVP to “No” the earliest person on waitlist will be notified that their RSVP has been upgraded from “Waitlist” to “Yes”. Closer to the event, keep an eye out from a message from the organizer.

About the A Day in the Life Series

Each month, we'll explore a different role in the UX field. This gives an opportunity for you to learn about what people do in that particular role, ask them questions, and participate in activity to “test drive” what it’s like to be in this role. Join this meetup to be the first to know about upcoming events!
