UX Design—an abbreviation of “user experience design”—is the craft of making the user’s experience when interacting with a digital product as effective, efficient, and pleasant as possible: the process of building products with the user in mind. A UX Designer’s work touches the entire end-to-end journey of a user’s interaction with a product, and includes identifying new opportunities for the product and business.
Think of all the websites you have used over the years – Web Developers built those sites, making sure they functioned properly and performed in ways that allowed for a great user experience. Web development is closely related to the job of designing the features and functionality of websites and apps (often called “web design”), but the “web development” term is usually reserved for the actual construction and programming of websites and apps. Established in 2012, BrainStation is the global leader in digital skills training, and has trained 250,000+ professionals for careers in Technology.
