Hi All. I was wondering if I can get some information on UX design career. I am a self-thought designer who started from a graphic design background and gradually shifted way towards UI/UX design due to our companies needs. Now, it has been more than two years that I have been doing mainly UI/UX work, and I’m learning more with each project.
However, I’m thinking about learning UX more deeply/fundamentally. So, before diving in, I wanted to gain some more information about the field.
- I’m curious to know what different areas/specializations in the UX design field are?
- Do you need to have knowledge and skills in all areas of UX as a designer or can you specialize in just one area? If so, are there any areas that are more in demand?
( I am interested to know the answer to this question because my work focuses more on prototyping, wireframing, and UI design while I have minimal experience in researching, testing, card sorting, etc., due to our companies circumstances. So, I am trying to understand if I should work more on areas that I am lacking such as researching or focus on strengthening my current skills. )
- Lastly, What are the primary knowledge and skill requirements for a UX designer?
I would appreciate your advice on this matter.
