What is it that differentiates a junior from a senior UX professional? It’s not as simple as it sounds – both practitioners and employers should be aware that these “junior” and “senior” categorisations are fuzzy at best. They don’t always tell the full story of your experience when it comes to expertise and years of experience. Knowing which roles are right for you will help you navigate the job market and pave your own career pathway.
Aarron Walter joined us in our Slack channel to talk about the power of designing emotional experiences. We are emotional beings and tapping into that makes for more powerful work.

Andy Vitale, UX Design Principal at 3M, talks us through his iterative approach to research.
In our next “Ask the UXperts” session we’ll chat with InVisions’s Aarron Walter about designing emotional experiences. It’s all about harnessing emotion to inject personality into our work – creating products that our users will fall in love with.
