I am a chap with many hats, is what I am.
I have been told that I am a good story teller, this, I take as a great complement.
My personal feeling is, as a User Experience designer, it is one of the most important things to be able to do, and one that I enjoy doing. But for me it goes much further than that, I love working with people from all walks for life, may that be a stakeholder, manager, designer or the user, I try to build relationships and this helps me tell the story, which I feel needs to be told.
When on a UX project, I have the benefit of being able to think and include various aspects into my works. Such as;
- what does the business want,
- what is the user asking for,
- what will help the sales and marketing teams,
- how will brand and design fit into the solution
I am sure most UXers do this, but, what I feel sets me apart is the last hat, that of the developers. Where I consider how will a development team work with my solution.
