I don’t see any graphic designer roles these days all I see is UI/UX designer with five years of experience. designers who got these titles are you really doing UI/UX or are you still doing multi media design? Maybe I’m targeting the wrong rules but I have the skill set. Looking forward to any advice.

Do you only search “graphic designer” specifically? I’ve found that that title has become less common, but I’ve seen more visual designer, marketing designer, brand designer roles start to appear.

It’s frustrating though because I feel the pressure to switch to UI/UX, but I have zero interest in working on applications or just websites. I love marketing these things, not designing the actual interface!

Most designers aren’t actually doing UX. But courses in schools tend to include a few weeks of UX material so young designers claim it. It’s an odd time for design titles, for sure. I do UI and don’t even claim to be able to do true UX. We all do UX to some level since it isn’t just restricted to digital but to all products and interactions, but there are no longer clear definitions to what areas designers excel in. Try search multidisciplinary design titles or some of the ones mentioned above. AD and CD are still relevant, too.

I was a graphic designer but I took a boot camp in 2019 for ux/ui. I’ve been working ux/ui ever since and the design background helps me excel in these roles. However, to answer your question, yes 100% of my time is working as a ux/ui designer.
