As much as I hate to have “resorted” to doing what I grew up doing, I have literally been designing since I was a kid. Sure, during the above era it was all logos for fake companies and toilet-humor advertisements, but I was all about attention to detail. Immature ideas never looked so crisp.
For the past two decades I've been designing professionally, in a wide array of mediums: print, web, logo, video, multimedia, environment, language... oh, and user interface. Man, you can't throw a smart phone without hitting a “UI/UX-pert” these days, can you?
I'm not quite holding myself out with that title. I was designing UIs even before my 1996 internship with Macromedia in college, but I'm only just now leaning into the UI/UX wave (for most of my design past I've been a generalist), and I really don't feel a need to oversell my experience. Let's call me a Senior UI/Interaction Designer for the time being (it would be absurd to refer to anyone with my depth of digital background as anything less).
What I arguably lack in a recent UI track record I more than make up for in other areas:
› Thorough attention to detail
› A zeal for the logical organization of complex assets and information
› Careful and clear communication
› Top-down approach to project flow and problem solving
› Highly adaptable to changing project directions and requirements
› Extremely efficient with tool usage and work processes
