Would you like to customize your website to suit your customers' needs and optimize their user experience? Are you looking to get more details on the various resources used in optimizing user experience? User experience, or UX, can be defined as any interaction with a service or a product. How the user feels, navigates, and completes the desired task are considered. UX design considers every component of the interaction. This principle can be applied to anything. The purpose of UX Design is to provide users with experiences that are simple, relevant, efficient, and enjoyable. Consider heading to your favorite grocery store. You want to buy something, so you stroll down the aisles (how are they spaced?), listen to music (what sort of music and why?), inspect the shelf (is it made of wood, metal, or plastic?), interact with a cashier, and then leave. Everything in this easy and insignificant procedure is based on experience. You've interacted with an entire brand, including colors, feelings, music, arrangements, workers, and so on. Everything is based on personal experience. It is the same case with user experience in web design.

ABOUT THE BOOKThis book analyzes how Don Norman coined the word "User Experience Design" in the 1990s and it means a person's perception or feeling towards using a product, service, website or a system. What a user feels would depend on the way an organization has designed its user experience to fit the user's needs and expectation, i.e, an organization looks at the patterns, habits and behavior of users to make their experience better. UX design is all encompassing in the sense that it covers various fields such as psychology, computer science, statistics, graphic design. A great user experience has to be useful, usable and desirable.Steps on how to develop user experience which includes: User profiles and personas (how to develop a persona) User interface User Surveys User flow diagram Sitemaps (how to create a sitemap using pen and paper) Wireframes and prototypes (how to create your first wireframe) and so on. Also techniques to develop the user experience was also established which includes: Value proposition Product strategy Stakeholders and Users Interviews to develop Accurate Products Kickoff Meeting to Ensure Smooth Operations etc. Essential rules for UX Design such as design for users, provide absolute clarity, give users control, predict, then adapt etc.There is also the design thinking process which includes: Empathize Define Ideate Prototype Test The roles of UX designers as well as the misconceptions of UI and UX.
