How to Become a Freelance Mobile App Designer

If you’re fascinated with mobile applications’ details and inner workings, mobile app development may be the right career path for you. Freelance mobile app designers can make great money and get to work on any number of mobile platforms.

The most popular platforms are Android and iOS. Obtaining a bachelor’s degree in computer science or an equivalent field, in addition to a few years of experience with a mobile app development company, can put you squarely on the path of becoming a freelance mobile app designer.

What does a mobile app designer do?

A freelance mobile app designer works with clients to create new applications or features for existing applications for mobile devices. Freelance mobile app designers typically collaborate with designers, testers, product managers, and other developers.

Mobile app designers use popular coding languages to develop mobile apps, including JavaScript, Kotlin, C++, Python, and Swift.

What skills do I need to become a mobile app designer?

In order to become a freelance mobile app designer, you need particular education and experience requirements. A bachelor’s degree in computer science or an equivalent, with at least three years of experience, will position you to become a freelance mobile app designer.

Common skills a mobile app designer should possess include:

  • Knowledge of the relevant operating system and associated applications—for example, Windows as an Android developer
  • Proficiency in relevant programming languages, such as Swift for iOS, and Kotlin for Android
  • Ability to focus on code quality practices, such as modular design and unit testing
  • Familiarity with IoT or wearable technology

Should I get a mobile app designer certification?

While getting a mobile app designer certification can’t hurt your chances of becoming a freelance mobile app designer, the best educational course of action consists of obtaining a bachelor’s or master’s degree in computer science, software development, or programming languages such as Java, CSS, JavaScript, or HTML. In addition, a number of years of hands-on experience goes a long way in proving your worth as a freelance mobile app designer.

What are the job responsibilities of a freelance mobile app designer?

A freelance mobile app designer is tasked with helping clients develop and maintain mobile applications across available mobile platforms. More specifically, responsibilities may include, but are not limited to:

  • Understanding project requirements in order to identify and develop the best mobile app solutions and user interface
  • Using appropriate coding languages and frameworks for targeted platforms
  • Working in a collaborative environment with other developers
  • Communicating with stakeholders, including engineers, programmers, software developers, product managers, product owners, marketers, and senior executives
  • Overseeing design and code reviews
  • Creating an excellent and user-friendly experience
