Inside the Brainster Community: March 2021

This Spring marks 1 year of the new normal. Learning online, working from home, online shopping and yoga in the living room are our reality. This Spring inspired our team to reflect and think – How are learning and jobs different now, 1 year into the pandemic?

These are our March highlights, filled with content on careers, jobs, and technology.



Brainster Article: Making a Career Shift in Times of Pandemic

It’s no surprise, then, that many people are reconsidering their futures in the wake of the latest pandemic. Is now, though, the best time? Even those who didn’t get sick felt other types of uncertainties during the past year—mental, emotional, and even existential.

UX/UI Design Student Project

Working on real projects is a mandatory part of the program and a process that each of the students must complete. Through working on real projects for real clients, students learn from each other and have the opportunity to show the acquired knowledge and their creativity.

The most recent challenge they had to face was to individually design an e-shop for our learning partner, the digital printing house, MyPrint.

Lastly, a Brainster article: A comprehensive guide to mobile app design

To attract a more significant number of users, your app must have an exemplary user interface (UI) and provide an outstanding user experience (UX). This means that your app could look good, but this won’t be worth it if it’s not easy for the user to navigate through. Apps with confounding navigation, cognitive fatigue, and unfriendly architecture are less likely to stand out in a crowded market.
