Digital product designer, UX designer, UI designer, front-end developer, … Lots of titles, but what is it I actually do? 🤔
Well, during a typical project I may:
- design functional and aesthetic interfaces.
- conduct user tests to make sure that what's being made actually helps users.
- write clear, consistent and user-focused microcopy.
- help clients refine their ideas and make sure they build a product that solves a problem that's worth solving.
- create design systems that are built for scale, user-friendliness and smooth implementation.
- make sure digital products don't exclude anyone by implementing accessibility standards and usability best practices.
- validate the technical feasibility of design ideas with developers and jointly search for alternatives wherever necessary.
- facilitate workshops.
- help businesses crystallize their ideas into buildable and well-defined MVP requirements.
- represent end-users in meetings with clients and development.
- carry out usability audits on existing products to improve them.
- present ideas and designs to clients.
Or any combination of the above!
I've been lucky to have worked with companies of all sizes, from BEL20 to start-up. Some examples include Colruyt Group, Colmar Group, Serax, …
