“lives in a sort of purgatory”
A front-end designer … lives in a sort of purgatory between worlds:
- They understand UX principles and best practices, but may not spend their time conducting research, creating flows, and planning scenarios
- They have a keen eye for aesthetics, but may not spend their time pouring over font pairings, comparing color palettes, or creating illustrations and icons.
- They understand the importance of backend development, but may not spend their time writing backend logic, spinning up servers, load testing, etc.
