A new day dawns for this UX practitioner.
Nothing grinds a UX designer’s gears more than “UX/UI” (well, some of them, at least). But what should we do if this is where a company’s design maturity is at? Should we really say, “They don’t get it” or give it a decent try?
There’s a truism that most UX portfolios are sh*t and not worth a manager’s time. Assuming it’s true, though, does that mean portfolio advice should be condescending?!?
We’re fond of saying, “Rejection is not about you”. But is it really not about you or is it the other way around?
The design challenge is one of the most hot button issues in the User Experience (UX) world today… and that’s putting it lightly. Just why do we get fired up when we talk about this thing, and could there be an end in sight (either hand-wringing or the design challenge itself)?
