Thankfully, UI has moved on a lot since then. Nowadays when you create designs, as a Freelance Digital Designer you have to consider how your interface will work not only on Desktop computers, but also (Responsively) on Tablets, Mobile phones and more recently Smart Watches and for devices in portrait and landscape orientations, in a huge variety of sizes and resolutions. This brings with it complexities, but also lots of opportunity for creative user interface (UI) solutions that help overcome these challenges.
We’ve been lucky enough to be designing User Interfaces for over 16 years, and have had the opportunity to work for high-profile clients such as Sony, Betfair, Landrover Jaguar and Coke. Having been freelance user interface designers for the last 7 years, we get to use that know-how for a mixture of our own clients, and sometimes for Digital Agencies.
