Back in the old days, people needed to come up with ways how to communicate with computers in order to use their magnificent power and make the most of it to serve user needs.

Some time ago I talked with my colleague Mateusz Jankowski, who is a Senior UI designer. I was telling him that I’m going to write a post about the truth of working as UI designer. The deeper you dig, the darker it gets, but maybe there’s one specific term that describes your daily duties? - I asked. His answer made me cry with laughter - sure, it’s like a visual OCD (obsessive-compulsive disorder). Well, it’s hard to disagree. But it’s just the tip of an iceberg.
