Finally figured out that what I’d been doing for the past 3 years is called UX

During The Beijing Center’s website redesign, I worked closely with the UX director of the agency that I’d hired. Through this interaction and some introspection, I knew that I came alive when I tried to understand why people make the choices they do- especially when interacting with technology. I knew that my brain seemed extremely clear when figuring out systems, but I had done so many “random” projects, I wasn’t sure how it all came together. It was then that I realized that everything that I loved to do actually did fit into one job description. UX.
