Pragmatic Marketing was gracious enough to allow my presence in their print magazine (print!) after I did this presentation at ProductCamp Seattle. Here’s the original article in PDF format and HTML format. It was done in the theme of the UX Drinking Game, but there’s some very valuable tips. Drink on!
Being a user-experience designer can get frustrating—enough to drive a person to drink.
In 2011, I decided to share some of my frustrations with the role by creating a website, UX Drinking Game. People soon began submitting their own frustrations, and the site currently has a list of more than 1,000 of them–most of which are funny, but also sadly true.
Having worked in both product management and UX design myself, I found it interesting that so many pertain to the struggles of the two roles working together. This article is devoted to five of those reasons, and how we can work together more effectively and stay sober.
