The science of design.

A short time ago, I presented to a group of finance individuals. During the questions and answers period I was asked what skills were required to do my job. Was Photoshop still the go-to, how about coding? My answer was neither, nor in the vein of graphics all together. The answer was science, and more specifically psychology.

The individual tools will change, improve and evolve. One day you could be a world famous Flash designer, and the next, need I say more. But one constant that will be core to User Experience Design, is the user itself.
