A new day dawns for this UX practitioner.
What if you didn’t have to think about the possibility of failing? Here’s my close encounter with that question on something as deeply personal as… a UX portfolio.
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?
We’re fond of saying, “Rejection is not about you”. But is it really not about you or is it the other way around?
Rejection often gets us into problem-solving mode. But what if what’s needed at that critical moment is a warm blanket than a heavy, steely hammer?
