UI? UX? Visual Designer? Ever had trouble trying to figure out how to label what you do? The creative industry has expanded and changed with the rise of digital technology, and it’s brought on a slew of inconsistent, blended job titles in an attempt to describe what it is we do.
Can we decide on a set of universal standards or do we ditch the business-card-filling titles entirely to convey our professions?
It’s time we sat down and figured out how to explain to our moms—and our peers—what we do. Join us for a guided conversation with creatives of all types to share ideas, opinions, and dreams for our industry.
Here we will:
1. Generate groups of current job titles
2. Organize and consolidate
3. Define universal standards
4. Explain to our moms what we actually do.
