I graduated from school about a year ago and have been working as a
independent freelance web designer. I am in the process of doing some
career planning and would really appreciate all of your feedback, as I
would imagine there also many other people out there like me.
Basically, I received a design education (BFA @ The School of Visual
Arts) and have been a tinkerer in Web Design since high school
I'm fairly new to UX/IX design, and I've seen so many people talk
about the benefits/shortcomings of generalists vs. specialists. I had
to take a swing at it, and I think I've cleared up the real issue:
Instead of just asking "which is better" we should be asking
"which is better for our business?"
Too many times the UX civil war seems to revolve around broad skills
or narrow skills, and as far as I can tell, it doesn't matter which
skill set you have. Both are valuable and necessary.
