    Future skills? These are current skills

      Hi Tim. There is a reason the title is ’10 skills future UX designers will need to know’ not ’10 future skills UX designers will need to know’. Sure these are all current skills but current skills that I believe will become increasingly important in the future.

      In the ten years that I’ve been professionally working in UX I don’t think that the skill set required to be a good UX designer has changed all that much, and I think the same will largely be true in the future. Ultimately UX design is about people and whilst technology might change very rapidly, people don’t change nearly as quickly…

    I would agree with Tim that these are skills that every good UX Designer should have today. If we are documenting today’s skills, I would also add user analytics to the mix.
