Tried searching for a similar question, but didn't find anything...
I was wondering if there are ways to increase my usefulness to my company, in my role as a UX designer. My skillsets primarily reside in UI design, and some front-end development work.
At the beginning, there was alot of UI design work to keep me busy, but after launch of the product a year ago, things have slowed down a bit. Is there something I can do on a weekly basis to measure my own importance to the company? Nowadays, my work has been primarily one-off mock-ups for UI improvements, and some newsletters here and there for the marketing department. But these projects don't take that long to finish, and i'm left with alot of empty working hours to fill in. I know it's kind of an odd question, but as a business to buisness product company, how do you continue to improve "user experience" if there aren't really any users?
Are there any projects you guys create for yourselves to fill the "in-between" hours of your days?
