Yep, it is not easy to explain to your parents/wife/friends how you spend your days.
I re-stumbled upon an old post I read immediately after it was published.
(Clarification: ‘old’ means ’2 year old’, but nowadays that age is like a century :)
I was re-impressed by the graph used in that post, which represents the many sides of user experience design.
Now I realize why I am so tired when I go to bed. Because it’s like I am doing six jobs, which are:
- Information Architecture
- Human Computer Interaction
- Interaction design
- User Interface Design
- Human Factors Engineering
Should revise my hourly rate :)
