WHY DESIGN ISN'T THE MOST IMPORTANT SKILL UX/UI FOR UX OR UI DESIGNERS

WE ASSOCIATE DESIGN' WITH..
Visuals.
This includes colors, balance, hierarchy, tone, branding, illustrations, visual language and more.
The 'design output' is important but makes up a very small aspect of our responsibilities.

BUT DESIGN ALSO INVOLVES..
Problem solving, business and marketing.
Every interface is solving a problem. Every experience needs to meet a business objective. Every product needs traction to survive.
Want to 'stand out'? Then focus on these areas because not many designers do!

BUT I'M NOT BUSINESS MINDED IS NOT AN EXCUSE IT'S A DOG EAT DOG WORLD

ELEVATE OR BE REPLACED

OKAY, WHERE SHOULD I START?

SIDE PROJECTS Solve a problem you're facing. Launch the product and see what traction you can get!
PODCASTS I have recommended 5 of my top podcasts to help designers grow beyond their bubble. Check my feed.
MINDSET I've said it many times already but I'll say it again. Be more outcomes focused!
