Many of us all designers, but we are not the same.

Every designer has a different approach, a unique set of traits and skills that make them special. So, have you ever wondered, what kind of a designer are you?

Take this quick test and find out!

The first thing I do when I start my workday…

I’m checking up my to-do list.confetti
I’m checking up on my social media — Dribbble, Instagram and Twitter.confetti
I sip my coffee and argue with another designer under a blog post.confetti
Already deep down in Hotjar and Google Analytics data.confetti

You have to design a button for a website. What is your approach?

I check on general style guide and design a button.confetti
I swipe through my inspiration folder and design a button in the newest, popular “neuomorphic” style.confetti
I sigh on such a silly task, I design a perfect button, I code it and I implement it on the website.confetti
I check all the data I have on buttons, run accessibility tests, then install analytics and observe.confetti
I get irritated by the fact that the whole website is implemented poorly and everything is badly aligned. I end up redesigning the whole website.confetti

You are on a meeting with a client. What are you possibly doing?

I’m going through all the feedback and resolving as much tasks I can on the go.confetti
I’m showing inspiration mood-board for an interface, highly inspired by all the newest trends and wow effects I recently discovered on the internet.confetti
I’m disagreeing with everything my client has to say —I’m the specialist here.confetti
I’m in the middle of card-sorting session, doing proto personas or creating a/b tests.confetti
I insist on creating a design-system, because of the visual mess and inconsistency of the whole product.confetti

Choose one social media portal:

I don’t really have time for social media.confetti
I have my own website, where I write all the stuff I have to say.confetti
I only read Norman Nielsen Group blog.confetti

You’re close to a project deadline. What do you do?

I take extra hours to finish all the tasks and will probably crunch today.confetti
I take some of the finished interface screens and put it into a mockup, so I have something to post on Dribbble.confetti
I get angry and complain that if I did everything by myself, the project would be done on time.confetti
I calculate the probability on finishing the product on time.confetti
I do the last QA session and adjust the text on a button of a main CTA, so it’s perfectly aligned.confetti

You get a negative feedback from a client. How do you react?

I thank for the feedback and begin to change my design so it meets the client’s expectations.confetti
I feel offended, I resign from a project and I cry.confetti
I get irritated, and I write an essay explaining why the client is wrong.confetti
I present all the latest data to prove that my project is functional and well-thought.confetti
I criticize all of their current products, because everything they did is outdated, low-quality and visually ugly.confetti
