Awhile back I posted my “Universe of User Experience“, where I wanted to show all the pieces that needed to come together to create a great experience. This was very helpful in educating people on what User Experience was and why all the pieces were necessary. But this did not address the issue of explaining the roles of the people doing this work… So, who feeds these experiences?
Many people still donâ€™t understand the different roles we play as Designers. Some people think â€œVisual Designâ€, while others think â€œHTML Codersâ€. â€œWeb Designerâ€ is a term that should only be used to describe what you do to your grandparents.
While in the past weâ€™ve had distinct roles, the trend is to move towards â€œUser Experienceâ€, someone who understands many different aspects of the design and development process.
