Everyone is a designer. Get over it.
Daniel Burka

I know you meant “UX designer” whenever you wrote “designer” in this article, but I would strongly encourage you to reread this while mentally substituting “designer”s for “interface designer”.

I’ve had a lot of negative experiences with people outside of my company’s design team thinking they’re interface designers (or better at interface design than the actual designers), and it’s frustrating to think that anyone would encourage that sort of behavior. I know that’s not what you meant here, but it’s not a difficult misinterpretation to make- which might be a reason why people are so riled up about this.
