Maybe because it’s Friday, but today I feel really polemical. After a tough week full of commitments, I was looking forward to joining a meeting about “UX and Developers”.
After a shy warm-up related to the aim of the meeting and the covered topics, my hopes went completely apart when I saw the umpteenth slide with a banal definition of UX and the photo of Steve Jobs.
Are we serious here? Is it possible that designers do not have a better idea to say what the hell is UX without showing a pic of Steve Jobs?
More often I think that executive people, managers and colleagues are struggling to understand the real value of our job because ourselves, as designers, are not committed to effectively communicate our values, our ideas, and our way of working.
What’s the point in showing a Steve Jobs pic every time you want to explain why a company should invest on UX?
