Beyond User Experience: Onward and Upward

Many of these fields have been fundamental in defining the roles and processes that we use in modern UX design. However, this is a somewhat self-important way of thinking about user experience. While UX design is a popular and growing field, it’s certainly not the only career pinnacle for people working in digital design. Many people are transitioning or graduating to roles other than those in user experience, but there’s not enough discussion of the alternative career paths that people can pursue post-user experience.
