et’s take a moment to think about what creating a positive User Experience really entails. 🤔
There are a host of aspects to consider: the physical product, the human interface design, the language used, even the instructions manual that guides the user through the whole process.
UX Design is often over-simplified as the process of getting users from Point A to Point B in a clear and concise way. But we mustn’t over-simplify the multitude of roles that come into play when designing the overall user experience.
For that reason, Donald Norman came up with the term ‘UX Design’ in the first place.
“I invented the term because I thought human interface and usability were too narrow. I wanted to cover all aspect’s of the person’s experience with the system including industrial design graphics, the interface, the physical interaction, and the manual.”Donald Norman
