If you are a UI/UX designer, what would you choose, to be an all-around with average skills (design + programming) or be a champ in UI/UX only?

Be a jack of all trades and a master of none or a master of one (and more)? It is an age-old question.

It depends on the environment where you want to focus on:

  • in a one-man band freelancing: jack of all trades
  • in a company with team members with specializations: specialize
  • in a company with “all-around” team members: jack of all trades

In general, be the best at one thing and not so best or at least familiar with other things.
