What does a Product Designer do?

    My understanding:

    Product Designers do design work holistically across a product-- that means potentially working on visuals, interaction, product and maybe even a bit of code. You essentially craft products.

    Imagine designing a physical product in a workshop:

    You'll be juggling industrial design and mechanical engineering problems along with working and feeling with your hands. You'll conceptualize, sketch, sand, mold, polish and iterate. It's all one thing: you're designing a product.

    As a product designer you aren't necessarily responsible for one aspect (visuals, interaction, etc) but rather the product as a whole.
