EffectiveUI And Galvanize Launch Experience Architect Program

DENVER, Feb. 25, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Galvanize, a Denver-based startup ecosystem creating a platform to launch breakout companies through the pillars of venture capital, community and curriculum, in partnership with EffectiveUI, a leading user experience agency, is launching the second installment of gSchool. The full-time, intensive Experience Architect program, which takes place in Denver, will prepare students for a career in user experience (UX) design. Enrollment is open today through April 1, and classes begin on June 10.

The digital experience industry is realizing significant growth as companies look to engage with customers more and more through multiple online channels. According to Onward Search, a digital marketing and creative staffing company, requests to fill positions in the user experience field have increased 171% from 2011 to 2012.

The gSchool Experience Architect course is designed to help people learn the skills they need to achieve high-demand careers in UX. The curriculum, created and taught by some of the top practitioners in the field, focuses on the unique skillset needed in experience design, which is often not taught as part of traditional design degree programs.   

"A focus on UX design was a perfect progression for the second installment of gSchool. This is another innovative industry with such great implications for the future of business," said Chris Onan, managing director for Galvanize. "Students in this program are set up for success – they will be studying in the unique Galvanize micro-environment, just 20 feet from roughly 65 companies who need to hire this kind of talent."

Experience Architects, or UX Designers, are generally responsible for creating, facilitating and executing the user experience for digital interfaces, such as those for mobile, web and desktop apps. They combine visual and interaction design principles with user, business and stakeholder requirements, as well as technology platform constraints to create positive experiences and emotional engagement with a company's brand. Professionals with Experience Architect qualifications generally work for an agency or with a company in-house.
