Lyle Alzaldo and his friends have produced another fun "I ♥ UX Design" animation. In case you missed it, make sure to watch the first video here.
Please lend your support to Lyle and his friends by visiting their website at iluvuxdesign.com or following them on Facebook.
Thanks for the link, and yes - it's hard to find anything to object to in this lighthearted video.
Guess it was just on the mind, given the subject.
@Tim, this conversation has been had before:
I personally don't think the distinction you make matters on a practical level... it's overly precise semantic hair-splitting. Whether you want to call it "UX design" or "designing for UX," it's hard to find anything to object to in this lighthearted video.
Isn't it a bit naive?
Although we can design FOR a great UX, isn't it a bit naive to think we could literally DESIGN a "user experience" that a user might have with a brand, at any and every level of interaction (physically & mentally)?
In this context, I don't feel the title "UX Designer" is accurate. INHO, the belief that anyone could literally design an experience hints of a god complex.
At best, we can develop a UX strategy, taking into account that UX is organic and consists of many variables - that certainly can't be designed, because we DO NOT control the user's thoughts or actions, but rather elicit them.
Am I alone in this opinion?
The title "UX designer" insinuates much more control than any designer actually has.
