Design Titles: The Good, The Bad, and The Utterly Ridiculous

Alright, let’s cut the fluff. The design world’s got more titles than a retro video store. Here’s a few job titles that you might be familiar with and some others that I completely made up. Because job labels are a bit weird sometimes :)

  • Senior Designer: Age is just a number, and that number is… 23 💫

  • Art Director: “I’m not quite feeling that color” 💅

  • UX Designer: Saving users, one story at a time. ✨

  • UI Designer: Making screens sexy since… whenever. 💅

  • Product Designer: Jack of all trades, master of… well, a lot. 🙈

BUUUT it quickly spirals into the abyss of creativity.

  • Design Evangelist: Spreading the gospel of good design. 🙏

  • Color Alchemist: Sees more colors than screens actually render. 🌈

  • Fullstack potato: Mashing code, I guess? 🥔

Personal experience

At Marley Spoon and Cookies, I started in the early stages as the lead designer, handling everything from branding to UI. At Zalando or Delivery Hero I was part of a proper design team, focusing my product design skills on mobile apps. And whether it was Bayer or Siemens, these big corporations needed a freelance ninja for their digital endeavors. So yeah, I’ve worn many job labels depending on the project/client/setup, but they’ve always revolved around the broader realm of digital product design.

Here’s the Deal

Job titles are just window dressing. What matters is the hustle, the grit, and the good work you put out there. So please, wear any title you fancy ;)

Hello! I'm Sergi, a product designer from Barcelona with a passion for coding. Throughout the last decade I've traveled across the globe collaborating with companies of all industries and markets. My years in Berlin further enriched this experience, allowing me to work with organizations of all sizes, from early-stage startups to well known industry leaders.

I've always been a bit of a tech nerd. I could spend hours building intricate systems in Figma, playing around with web stuff or just tinkering with any new dev framework that pops up. But it's not just about geeking out; this tech know-how really boosts my design game. It's like I've got one foot in the design world and the other in development, helping both sides chat and get along. It's a pretty sweet spot to be in!

Besides that, I've always been keen on fostering community connections. I've hosted a few meetups and hackathons around the topic of design tools. While I might describe myself as a design geek, I'm also someone who values genuine connections and meaningful work. If you're looking for a designer with a global perspective and a down-to-earth approach, I'm your guy!
