What is a UX/UI Designer

UX/UI Designers are ones who separate the men from the boys. When the going gets tough, they stick to their guns and perform. Innovation is their best friend, mediocrity is their worst nightmare. They are capable of turning a grade 2’s family drawing into one of Van Gogh’s master pieces by only using a paper clip and a metre of string. Some call them indestructible, others call them Gods amongst men.
