Who is "me"?
Hello! My name is Mihajlo better known as Budo. I’m a Product designer focused on solving business problems and creating delightful user-centered and human experiences.
Before I changed my focus to Product and UX/UI design, I used to design logos and build websites. It was interesting for some time, but later it wasn’t challenging enough. So about 4 and a half years ago I refocused myself from just an ordinary “order-taker designer” to someone who is more involved in problem-solving, strategic processes, and decision-making.
Gaming and User Experience o.O?
I used to spend a lot of time playing games. Everyone thinks that it’s just a waste of time, but how does that help me to become better at UX?
Decision making – When milliseconds decide if you are going to lose or win, if you are going to die or live, you have to make decisions, a lot of them, in a short period. Sometimes you lose, sometimes you win, but over time you make smarter decisions and become better.
Focus – While playing you have to stay FOCUSED. If you are not focused you will get easily distracted and you may fail hard.
There are also some downsides, but always try to learn and get the best from anything.
