Let's make this more confusing

I’ve never in my life given that answer to that question. Am I the only one? I get the feeling this is an American perspective on the role of an interaction designer. Is it the only one? I hope not.

  1. No; I think it’s a curiously web-focused interpretation. A lot of people have come to interaction design through the web, rather than through a design background, which is where the problem comes from.

    Personally, I wouldn’t say “I help build web sites”, despite not having much experience of non-web interaction design… it’s just a lazy answer.

  2. I usually try to avoid entirely the world “web” when I answer that question since that’s like a “trigger word” that lowers the attention of the common listener to zero. :P
