Frequently asked questions
What is a digital product designer?
A digital product designer has the design skills to bring a digital product from creation to market. This could include:
- Identifying an opportunity for a new product or feature
- Experience design: user research, UX Flows, wireframes, lo-fi prototyping, testing, etc.
- Visual interface design & hi-fi prototyping
What is the difference between a product designer and a UI/UX designer?
These two titles are often used interchangeably. Both refer to an individual who has a design skill-set encompassing UX and Visual/UI Design.
However, you could say that a product designer is always working on products, whereas a UI/UX Designer might work across broader projects – such as the UX and design of a simple brochureware site.
What are employers looking for in a digital product designer's CV?
They'll want to see examples of good work - people who can design well will always be in demand.
Companies look for designers who can understand and communicate how design can solve a business problem. It’s no longer just about visuals - it’s part of a broader process that brings in UX, design, stakeholder management and commercial awareness.
Designers who understand how to communicate in this way will really stand out.
A typical product team is made up of researchers, product designers, product managers, and engineers – so product designers often won’t be expected to have formal research skills or experience.
How do I get started as a digital product designer?
The earlier you decide what kind of designer you want to be the better - so you can work out what kind of companies hire those people.
Product designers are most likely to be hired by tech companies, start-ups, or brands.
There are also a few agencies. Apply for internships and start learning and reading product design processes and blogs; most tech companies’ product design teams write their own blogs.
Start building a portfolio – if not from internships, then work on personal projects.
