When starting your own business or setting up your own website or developing a new software, clients may often find themselves stuck in a conundrum when it appears that their product seems to be lacking usability or seems unfit for efficient delivery to its users. UX, or User Experience, is something that should be considered as a crucial part of the design process from the very beginning. Those that fail, or forget, to take it into account do mostly end up suffering from setbacks. All that can be avoided with the help of UX!
How User Experience (UX) works
User experience, or UX, is a technique and a system that focuses on improving and increasing the overall convenience, applicability and satisfaction that a customer may derive from the product he/she are interacting with. However, user interface (UI) and user experience (UX) are two different categories and should not be confused with each other. User Interface refers to the basic, grass-root level elements you get to see such as hyperlinks, buttons, icons etc. that are used to enhance the level of interaction you are having with the device or web page content. User experience goes beyond that and encompasses much more. UX dives into the total affectivity and relations a user may feel and experience when visiting a website or using some product. UX aims to appeal to visual perception because let’s face it, no one will be interested in your product or website if they cannot even figure their way around it!
