- Why I'm a UX Designer -
Perfection is boring. Getting better is where all the fun is. Dragos Roua
Design has always been a passion of mine. I fell into it initially because it fit well with my natural curiosity. Part technical, part psychological, part entertainment; design is the craft of creating things uniquely human.
That's what intrigues me most - the raw, human quality of both the process and the final product. Technology, at its base, is quite the opposite: it's all strings, numbers, calculations - very powerful, but very un-human. To me, design is the Great Bridge between those worlds. To me, that's where the real fun happens.
UX is the process of a thousand ideas and a million iterations. It's about refinement. There's nothing more satisfying than seeing a raw vision manifest itself over time and connect with real people.
The fast pace, complex problem-solving, getting to play with new technologies, researching and assessing with data, genuinely delivering delight to others - who could ask for a better career?
UX hasn't been just about designing for humans; I've found it's made me feel more human in the process.
