Design Thinker: You’ll uncover real business problems, prototype low-fidelity ways of solving that problem, and then design full-scale experiences that serve millions of people every day.

Interaction Designer: Your designs are fun to use. People say, “Huh, that was easy,” without you having to explain anything to them.

Skills:

  • Work hard to design the most personal experiences people have ever seen
  • Teach the team what you know, and be humble enough to learn from others3.
  • Use data to your advantage, and test the heck out of just about everything – whether on low-fidelity prototypes or high-fidelity designs
  • Recognize the people around you when they’ve done something exceptional (because the same will happen to you).
  • Measure how well your designs are performing by being specific and purposeful in your work – your brain never stops asking the question
  • “Why are we doing this again?” and you don’t rest until you’ve answered it.
  • Didn’t need constant supervision, reminders, or self-assurance – we’re all motivated, organized, self-starters.
  • Comfortable working in a suite of UI production and prototyping tools: such as Sketch, Photoshop, Framer, InVision, Flinto
