When will managers understand that there is a huge difference between a UX designer and a graphical designer?!

FML. The time wasted trying to explain that the proposed GUI is rubbish because they put a graphical designer in charge of planning the entire application flow..

    Yes! This! Over here its the opposite, also frustrating. they refuse to see ui and ux design apart, and use ux for everything, also for hiring the guy. 😔 So our applications are practical, but are ugly AF because the ux guy does not create works of art, just rough sketches, leaving implementation up to the devs. Sigh.

    @jkommeren Still better than a spectacular ornament that doesn't do its job.

    @homo-lorens ornaments look better on your resume though 😁

    Of course you're right, the customer wins in the case one has to be picked and that is the ux one. Still, i imagine with the right student and minimal effort, we could lift the looks from a 6 to an 8 or 9 and even save on dev time/clashes because everyone thinks they know best when it comes to looks. Everything is templated and ready to go, should be easy to fine-tune those

    And with our systems selling for 6 figures, I figure it's worth investing in.
