Although many of us have “design” in our titles, we’re not necessarily creative or artistic people and don’t have to be.
In the world of UX, many titles are often combined into one role. Often differentiation is hard to make, which makes it hard to choose your title. We’ve seen the infamous “UX/UI designer” job title.
