A tweeteries inspired by Very British Problems
During an interview:
“So what prototyping tools do you use?”
You (answering): “Blah, blah and blah.”
You (thinking): “the bleeding heart and artist.”
Accepting the fact that all your past works are literally crap, what you’re doing now is meh, and you’ll do better.
When it’s a success: blaming the status quo while hiding behind the curtain.
When it’s a failure: ‘It would have been worse if I hadn’t done it.’
Secretly admitting to be the asshole who always questions other people’s judgement and reasoning.
Feeling the urge to explain Gettier problem to your clients whenever they insist they know exactly what their problem is.
Asking what do you mean by “work” when someone tells you that driverless car doesn’t work at all ‘cos he tried it.
The intersection of “sacrificing #usability for early buy-in wow factor” and “being honest” is “are you kidding me?”
How your family members eventually give up the struggle to understand what exactly you do as a blah designer.
Feeling the urge to point out for your non-designer relative that he really doesn’t need to double-tap a link button.
“So what do you do?”
“I’m a [buzzword] designer.”
“Sounds interesting! So what do you do?”
“… (awkwardly sips the tea/coffee)”
“Hi buddy can you help me beautify my presentation?”
“No problem!” (mind-burning the idiot who doesn’t tell stories)
Barely use any advanced features of prototyping tools either bc you don’t have the time or bc you are the developer.
