I would like to engage the UX designer community in a discussion about the different roles and skills necessary in today’s User Experience design field. We have allowed many people in years past to define, or try to define what a UX designer is. From developers, who may see us as simple-minded individuals who don’t understand basic UI design principles, to the business executives, who may see what we do as the final frosting decoration on the cake. But how about we, the UX designers, taking a shot at it* and adding our five cents to define “us”. After all, this is a dynamic and constantly evolving field, and I for one, don’t think the definition has been completed yet, much less valued and understood.
So let me finish by asking, how will you define us?
