What does a UX designer do? I have been thinking about this since yesterday.
Whether you land a job at a startup or a larger corporation, your role as UX designer will be directly involved in the process to make a product useful, usable and delightful for that company’s intended target user group.
A UX Designer should be concerned with the whole design process, rather than just one part.

User research and usability testing have been topics of interest to me since more than 7 years. Would I consider myself a UX designer? As of now, no. You become good at doing something when you are put into practise what you have learnt.
I should start dedicating more time to writing, reading and improving user experience of softwares that I work on.
