    Good definition, but that's still pretty vague IMHO. I probably should've been more clear, I'd like this "definition" to be understandable to people who aren't designer, or might not be very tech savvy at all (i.e. family, old friends, etc...).

    I think my challenge lies in that I began my career as a graphic designer years ago, then naturally progressed to the web, then to an agency, then into the product world. So they mostly still just think I do "web design" but it's often hard to articulate the difference.

      In my opinion, we are not verbose enough with our job titles. To the average person, I think "Product Designer" clearly communicates that you design products. However, "Product Designer" does not define whether those are physical or digital products.

        Yeah, it's definitely a situational occurrence. When I talk to other designers, it's pretty easy to communicate what type of work you like to do. But when family or friends ask, I typically just say "I design things like Facebook or Twitter". Not ideal, but it get's to the point so I can move onto to not talking about myself hahaha.
