UX UI Design tests online – Earn an extra income working from home

There are a lot of opportunities online to extra cash daily and at the end of the month you can have something between U$ 100 – U$ 300.

However if you are a designer and if you want to work online, better be something related to design, right?

There are several “online jobs” regarding user experience tests, site tests, web design, bugs and apps.

Besides if you are already a digital designer UX – UI or want to learn more it is an interesting experience as a design tester you are at backstage, testing and learning also.

This sites are generally easy to enroll, in order to have a initial test, you must study guidelines and wait the test. In other sites you have to download a software to record screen and audio to perform testing.

The pay rate is good between U$ 10 – 20 for test, however at the beginning tests are not happening often, that’s a negative point.

9 steps towards changing the conversation around race, equity and bias in design

In response to the AIA Committee on Architecture for Education (AIA-CAE)’s invitation to talk about changing the conversation in design, as we think about race. Bias and equity, I created a 9 point / 5 minute ‘manifesto’ based on how I approach my work.

Start with Positionality

1. Start everything with positionality!

I am an Afro-Trinidadian design educator, based in New Orleans, and this experience follows me into my work. My current design practice is focused on critical design education that brings students to an awareness of social justice matters, inspired by the work of Paulo Freire among others.

El poder de una marca – Lidl y sus sneakers

Hablando de misterios de la humanidad, olvidate de tecnología o manufactura alien en los siglos anteriores al hierro o el bronce. El mayor misterio eterno y lo digo por que nunca se resolverá es el comportamiento del consumidor. Como “business case”, como dicen, pues esta el case de Lidl.

Lanzaron una despretenciosa linea de ropa con su marca y digo despretenciosa porque no creo que el supermercado o los ejecutivos que tuvieron la idea sabían de antemano que se iba a convertir en una fiebre. Esa es la belleza del mercado, destruye  o construye marcas en segundos.

Lidl ha sacado unas zapatillas con sus colores corporativos. Se están revendiendo a 500€

Victor Papanek – the politics of Design

The Papanek Foundation presents the international travelling exhibition  Victor Papanek: The Politics of Design, co-curated by Alison J. Clarke, a cooperation between the Vitra Design Museum and the Barcelona Design Museum, in collaboration with the Victor J. Papanek Foundation, University of Applied Arts Vienna.

The expansive show presents varied and previously unseen materials from the Papanek Foundation archive pertaining to design activist Victor Papanek’s lifelong career, highlighting the crucial theme of design as a political and social tool.

Alongside the exploration of Papanek’s links with key thinkers and design figures, ranging from media theorist Marshall McLuhan, maverick futurist Buckminster Fuller to leading feminist graphic designer Sheila Levrant de Bretteville, the exhibition casts light on the legacy of 1960s and 1970s activism through the presentation of contemporary exhibits dealing with politically pertinent issues ranging from state violence, to climate change, bio-synthetics, and the precariousness of citizenship.

 

Victor Papanek: The Politics of Design features work from cutting edge practitioners including: Forensic Architecture; Faber Futures; Flui Colectivo; Alexandra Daisy Ginsberg; Femke Herregraven; NeuroSpeculative AfroFeminism/Hypen-Labs; Lucy and Jorge Orta; Tomás Saraceno; Maya Jay Varadaraj.

Amélie Lamont: “I’m leaving AIGA behind. You should, too.”

 

This past May, the AIGA New York board met via Zoom to discuss potential board members recommended through our Call for Nominations.

“How do you get through the rest of the nomination application if their portfolio is bad?” one board member quipped as we discussed the merits of candidates.

“Yeah and also, how do we know if someone is cool?” another added. I was speechless. In a previous meeting, we’d agreed that bringing on non-designers and non-visual creatives was of a high priority. Why would a person’s “coolness” and portfolio (or lack of one) be a factor for inviting them to a team of community volunteers?

“I didn’t join the board to be best friends with people or to discuss the finer points of their craft. I joined to serve the broader design community and I hope that’s why we’re all here,” I countered, finally finding my words.

As a Black designer, I’m no stranger to my work quality being questioned. But it’s especially jarring to exist as a Black person who can see what’s going on behind closed doors. Unfortunately, my experience is not unique and this is especially true when surveying the shared experience of Black designers who have left “America’s professional organization for design” known as AIGA. During my tenure within AIGA, I’ve come to realize that it’s impossible to create sufficient change inside an organization that actively perpetuates racism towards people who look like me. It’s time for me to walk away, but before I do, I want to share what I’ve learned about AIGA’s history and pattern of not supporting Black designers.

To understand the meaning of the coronavirus, we have to frame it in its proper context, not see it in isolation from the perspective of science and technique that are always necessary. The coronavirus comes from nature, against which human beings, particularly through global capitalism for centuries, have waged a systematic war against this nature and against the Earth.
