UX: User Experience

User experience is focused on the end user, aiming to make the process for the user to reach their goals as seamless and as frictionless as possible. Good user experience has three main characteristics:

  1. Useful: the product/feature solves a need for users
  2. Usable: the user can use the product to accomplish their task easily and efficiently
  3. Desirable: users enjoy and actually want to use the product

A user experience designer concerns themselves with user research, interaction design, wireframing, preparing design prototypes for testing, determining information architecture, user scenarios, and more.
