User Experience Design

User Experience (UX) Design is the process that is behind the interaction of everyday human users (like you) and products and/or services. It is a field that combines psychology, design, technology, business, and so much more. When you are scrolling through apps or navigating websites everyday, there is a wealth of research that has gone into you having a seamless experience, and that is where UX Design comes into play.

Roles and Work Environment 

Developers, product managers, and business stakeholders where their main responsibility is to understand and advocate for the customer and their experience. They might have their hands in various tasks, like research and testing as well as wireframing and prototyping designs. One important distinction is that UX Designers don’t typically design how a website or app looks, but they are responsible for how it feels to the user in terms of the journey from beginning to end.
