… from Mark Boulton’s blog – On defining UX
Well, what a week that was. Off the back of a wonderful dConstruct came a timely discussion (either well-timed, or ill-timed depending on your point of view) between Ryan Carson and the UX community (rebuttals from Andy Budd and Cennydd Bowles).
As usual, it’s polarised opinion. But now — a few days later — more thoughtful discussion is beginning to take place.
It all started with one tweet:
UX Professional’ is a bullshit job title. It’s just a way to over-charge naive clients. All web designers should be UX pros
Admittedly, I think Ryan’s timing was a little off given Clearleft had just advertised they were looking to hire a Senior UX Designer. That said, this discussion does continue to bubble up the surface every now and then. Last year, I tweeted:
Since when did good web design suddenly get called ‘UX’? Everywhere I look now, good UI design is called ‘UX’, good type = ‘UX’, Colour? UX.
