Design & UX
What do UX designers do on a daily basis? A lot of things! UX professionals need to communicate design ideas and research findings to a range of audiences. They use deliverables (tangible records of work that has occurred) for that purpose. The list below contains the most common deliverables produced by UX designers as they craft great experiences for users.
Recent university graduates, my friends and I find it harder and harder to meet up. As we transition into a new stage of our lives (complete with full-time jobs, graduate school applications, and existential crises), we find it more difficult to plan get-togethers that match our busy schedules and cater all of our needs.
I recently stumbled across the term, “UX Writer” and since then I’ve had plenty of questions- the most important one being, “what exactly is UX writing and how is it different from copy-writing?”
The average smartphone user launches nine apps a day. On a monthly basis, each smartphone user accesses about 30 apps, which amounts to anywhere from one-third to half of all apps an average user has on their phone. This means the average smartphone user has a lot of apps on their device that they don’t use at all.
As designers, we create user flows and give them to developers, product managers, clients, and sometimes even users for testing. At its best, a user flow is a concise, clean, and compelling way to showcase the scope and vision of your application before it is developed. Oftentimes user flows are the key piece of documentation that we provide developers to actually bring our apps to life.
