User Experience Design and Research

Whether you are designing a new website, application or intranet, or improving one that already exists, an essential element is the user experience or how users will interact with and feel about your end product once it is complete.

At its most basic, UX design is about using research to understand user needs and develop solutions that users want to use.

User Experience Design

User experience design is about understanding organizational requirements and user needs – including how users feel and how they interact with a task – and building an interaction that provides a fulfilling and great experience for the user.

Each design phase is different, depending on the needs of the client, but it’s in this stage that the magic happens. With an understanding of what problem they are trying to solve, project constraints and the research that has been conducted, designers get to work solving problems using a variety of tools.
