User Experience Design means the entirety of the internal user experience that interacts with a given service or product. A good UX is one in which the user achieves a goal effectively and with satisfaction, i.e., quickly finds what he/she is looking for and passes successfully through a website or application. How to design this experience? First of all, gradually increasing the level of detail.
Workshops are the key to good UX Design
UX Designers must have an excellent understanding of the product, business goals, and target group to propose the most appropriate information architecture. During the product workshops, the client presents his assumptions and discusses them. As a result, the UX Designer can offer a primary user path and sketch the first models.
UX structure of a website or application
Before UX Designer starts designing each screen individually, the first step is drawing the page or application structure. It consists of marking which screens will be included in the project, what it will contain, and how the user will move between them.
UX Designer designs mock-ups in grayscale does not take into account the branding, but signals where the image or icon should appear, make decisions about specific components, such as text box, dropdown, radio button, checkbox – determine how they should behave, what should happen if an error occurs, and so on. The UX designer should make sure that the user always knows where he is on the page, how to return to the home page, cancel or undo changes, or how many more steps are ahead.
Accessibility in the User Experience Design
While creating applications, it is worth remembering to adapt them to each user. When creating a visual form that you should create an application to make it accessible to everyone. The designer makes sure that the presented texts are large enough and legible enough for people with visual problems. He/She also makes sure that all elements are contrasting enough to be visible. While working on the user experience layer, attention is paid to whether any icon should be signed and how. The designer knows the most about screen readers and the possibilities of accessibility settings in devices.
