Walk into any tech company, find the person who has super stylish glasses or who looks like they still listen to vinyl records, and there is a good chance you’ve located a UX Designer. They often look different because they are different.
The world is full of billions of people who every day interact with millions of lines of code in websites, applications, and software. The UX designer’s job is to stand between all that code and the human beings that have to use it. This is because they care about human-centered design.
They are obsessed with layouts, the organization of information, menus, navigation, processes, flows, and how people experience things in the real world. Sure, they can bore you by explaining (at length) the difference between a font and a typeface, but they can also turn helpful technologies into works of art. Some are also familiar with UI design.
