What is UX?

Resources from influential UX designers that I'm collecting which help explain User Experience Design, a field which is new to many.

" 'User experience' encompasses all aspects of the end-user's interaction with the company, its services, and its products."

 

"Producing products that are a joy to own" is just a part of UX as defined by one of the first UX design firms: Nielson Norman Group. Also included are resources on Research Reports, Training Courses, and further Articles

"Everything has a user experience. Our job is not to create the user experience. It is our job to make it good."

 

A very short explanation by Joel Marsh, Experience Architect on this UX Design blog The Hipper Element. He also has an extensive, 31-Lesson Crash Course on UX Design.

"UX is the intangible design of a strategy that brings us to a solution."

 

Erik Flowers has created a site to explain how UX Designers want to be seen and how they are typically seen at www. UX is not UI .com

There’s no secret usability voodoo involved when improving a site. It’s a simple case of asking questions.


Damian Rees at Experience Solutions writes: Once you’ve answered these three questions, it's much easier to review and improve the design and advise on the best way to improve them. The questions are about the typical user, their goals, and what you want them to do.
