User Experience is abbreviated to UX often called as experience design as well. It refers to aesthetics, responsiveness, familiarity, accessibility, usability, and engaging quality of the product. In general, it is the process of enhancing user satisfaction as they navigate through the product. The designer follows the protocol to create a conceptual way of design that helps the user connect with the digital system seamlessly. This is a process important in many fields. Let’s decode the process of building User Experience.
To make a good UX Design, a designer has to fulfill several requirements and the key is to define the interaction sequence between a user and a system in a way that meets the user needs. This typically includes:
- Persona: The data collected from the people(user) who have interacted with the system, in the form of their feedback and reviews based on their experience during the interaction,
- Wireframes: It is an information architecture that helps to connect the concept of the system with design, it can be a pencil drawing or a whiteboard sketch. This focuses on:
- availability of functions
- priorities of the information and functions
- display format for certain kinds of information
- effect of all the above steps on the end display,
- Prototypes: This is the test result of the product design after applying all the persona as well as desired wireframes. This serves to provide the demo of the real working system of the product,
- Written specifications: This deals with the user behaviour or designs required based on the number and types of users accessing the product. This can be elaborated with help of Use Case Diagrams that list down all the possible navigating paths through the product for all different types of users whose needs the product can fulfil,
- Site audit: This process deals with the study and analysis of the existing resources which can be reused to better the current UX design,
- Flows and navigation maps: This is the navigation system throughout the product, basically the transition from one screen to the next which forms the sequence flow in the product,
- User stories or scenarios: Its purpose is to capture user requirements in terms of interactions between the user and the system,
- Sitemaps and content inventory: Content inventory is the index or record to keep track of all the types and quantity of the content that is in the product. A sitemap is the step by step flowchart for all the content in the product,
- and Mockups: These are the precise visual layout and design of the expected product or interface.
