Curious about what constitutes a user experience, or “UX” designer? First, let’s debunk some myths about what they're NOT.

❌ Myth #1: A UX designer only works on digital products.
✅ Nope! They can design all types of products, from physical packaging to interactive apps.

❌ Myth #2: UX is just like graphic design.
✅ Uh-uh. UX involves strategy, building out wireframes and blueprints, and tapping into customer thinking and behavior.

❌ Myth #3: UX happens after everything else is built.
✅ Definitely not! A UX designer is front and center with programmers, product managers, and clients from start to finish.
