SimplyHired is providing job trend graphs since 2006. I got curious, and tried to compare web UI design to mobile UI design hiring trends. This is US only, so we have the weak dollar and the economic slowdown represented in this graph.
Mobile UI design jobs (not developer jobs) have increased by 33%, but web UI jobs have decreased 11% in the same time period. We’re seeing numbers even steeper than that for client work.
You know some of the top mobile designers in the US, Canada, UK, and Japan will be at Design For Mobile September 22-24, right?
