What is UX Design?

UX design is the process of creating products that provide meaningful and relevant experiences to users or we can say that to solve the problem in the easiest way. Typical UI UX design services involve allocation of design elements to produce intuitive digital interfaces and mobile applications by means of user research and analysis.


The Process of UX Design

It is divided into five categories:

1. Strategy

Planning about the project. It is used to create an understanding between designers, goals of the product, guiding principles of the project, defining long term goals of the organization, how to measure the success of the product and priority of the things to achieve.


2. Research

Understanding the problem of the user and get the solution of problems. there are three ways to solve the research through:

(i) Interviews – You are asking questions from the user.

(ii) Observation -You can understand the behavior.

(iii) Survey – It is an easy way to gather a large amount of information about a group.


3. Analysis

It is the process of measuring the interaction between a user and a user interface, often a website, an application or a design. In this section, you create a Persona, Scenario, Synthesis and Card Sorting.

(i) Persona- It is a representation of a type of customers, their goals, motivations, skills,  pain points and needs.

(ii) Scenario – It defines when, where and how the story of the persona takes place. When that goal is reached, the scenario ends.

(iii) Synthesis – Combining the number of different parts or ideas to come up with new data or theory.

(iv) Card Sorting – Categorize data. It is used to understand how users think about the content.


4. Designing

It is involving input and ideas from different people. These ideas are represented by Workflow, Flow Chart, and  Wireframes.

5. Workflow

It is a process for how a work should be done. It provides a graphic overview of the business process. It is a visual representation of a workflow.

6. Flow Chart

It ‘s A diagram for describing a process, a step-by-step approach to solve a task. It is used in analyzing, designing, documenting or managing a process in various fields.

7. Wireframe

Graphic structure of a website or app containing the content and elements. It is used to identify the elements that will be displayed on the screen.

8. A/B testing

It is another way of learning what actions users take or to enable you to make incremental improvements to your website or app.


In the end, the goal of the UX Process is – solving problems for users, helping them achieve their goals with ease and more than that make them feel delightful while doing so.
