What is a Full-Stack Designer?

“Malou, what is it you do exactly?”

“I’m a Full-Stack Designer.”

“Right… and what is that?”

Honestly, I get it! Allow me to explain.

You’ve probably heard about a Full-Stack Developer, well it’s the equivalent of that but for design. It means being a multidisciplinary designer who thinks of projects more holistically. I can be involved in every stage of the product design process, from research to design and front-end development.

“But Malou aren’t you just a ‘Jack of all trades and a master of none’ then?” I totally understand where you are coming from. However, I prefer to say that I am a ‘Jack of all trades and a master of some’.

Here’s the thing, with a broad skill set I’m well aware that I’m not a superhero in all of them – but I AM in some. The disciplines I master I can finish the work faster, and the ones I don’t, I can still do well but it will usually take me a bit longer.

Being a Full-Stack Designer is not for everyone, some prefer to specialize. However, if you like me enjoy no day being the same, it might be for you!

I don’t want to argue whether being a generalist or specialist is better, I believe they both have their place. What’s important is what is the right fit for you.
