What is UX and why learn it?
- It’s so important for your business given the changing digital expectations.
- User Centred Design and what it’s really at the heart of it is that you’re keeping your user at the heart of everything that you’re designing. So in order to be able to do this, you need to have a really good understanding of who they are and what they need.
- User Interface and this is literally just how your user interacts with you on a screen.
- UX is all about minimizing those pain points in the journey to ensure that your website has the most successful design possible. (Like Apple)
- Design is just conveying the message to the customer in design. Design is not an Elegance feel or putting some vectors.
