If you choose to call yourself a designer you may artificially limit
your scope and may paint yourself in a corner.
In my white board ven diagram I would have pricing as a factor of the
user experience that is linked to the business side of things. Design
would be a subset of the user experience, both in term of process and
job activity along other things like research, editing, technical
engineering etc. After all a writer doesnt 'design' text yet text is
often part of the user experience.
Personally I've dropped everything after 'User Experience' now. No
senior, designer, architect, lead, guru, consultant or anything else.
This means I can be part of a pricing discussion from a user
experience point of view. Design is part of the user experience, a
very very important one, but it is part, not the whole.
