Things to know aboutUser experience (UX) Design

What is UX Design? User experience (UX) Design is a process of enhancing user satisfaction (in web and apps) by maximizing the utility, accessibility, and overall efficiency of an interactive user interface with the application. When you think about it, a user interface is only as good as the way that it makes you feel when using the application. It should always be clear, understandable, fast, and intuitive. Below we have listed a few tips on how to create an amazing user experience for your web and app.

You don’t want to have a cluttered user interface, so be sure to stay clear of the clutter! Many UI designers make the mistake of over-using white space within their interfaces. While white space can visually unify an interface and make it more inviting, too much white space can also make it visually unclear and confusing. Here are a few tips on how to keep your white space uncluttered and visually distinct.

Always use a label for a button, drop-down menu, input field, or area in your interface. When designing an application, be sure to pay special attention to the UI UX definition that your user experience designer has decided to apply to the project. 

The term user experience designer is an umbrella term for many different designers who come together under the umbrella term of a group of specialists who work together on web and apps issues. These specialists include usability specialists, visual designers, usability testers, and more. The ultimate goal of a web and app designer is to ensure a long-term positive experience for the end-user.

Most people think of graphic designers when they think of graphic designers. However, there are many non-graphic designers involved in the web and app design process as well. Non-graphic designers are usually involved in the whole development cycle, from conceptualization to creation of the prototypes to the wireframes and even testing to final production. 

Some non-graphic designers are involved in the process from the beginning to the end of the project as visual designers, others as functional designers, and some are even involved in both areas. It depends on the business and the way the project is being developed as to which group you would need to hire for your project.

When looking at the web and app design process, keep in mind the goals for the project. When you have identified those goals, you will know what your user goals are as well as what is the proper type of testing that needs to be done to ensure a great experience for the end-user. Sometimes, we refer to these goals as deliverables and sometimes we call them goals. In any case, having these objectives established early in the design process will help prevent problems in the middle of the project when it comes to usability testing.

The last section of this article looks at the benefits of using both an interaction designer and a visual designer on a project. This is where the line between an executive-level designer and a functional designer becomes blurred. In most cases, the line is blurred between the two professions. 

At the executive level, the function is more important than the visual component. In addition, the executive might not be the person who is responsible for the usability. However, it still is useful to have both a functional and visual designer on a project because the benefits of each are often very much the same.
