Websites and Web apps are evolving rapidly. What once used to be one static medium has now evolved into rich and interactive experience.
Regardless of the improvements done in web development, the real success of a website still hinges on one thing: how do users perceive it? “Is the website giving value? Is it easy to use? What are users feeling about it?” are few queries that brainstorm business minds when they have a website serving to visitors globally.
User Experience Design tends to give answers to the above queries. User Experience, as the name suggests, is the way a person feels while interacting with a system – that essentially can be a website, web app, desktop software or more precisely Human Computer Interaction (HCI).
UX Design leverages the perceptibility of a website to the user and delivers maximum user satisfaction when it is tailor made to the goals, values and ethics of a business.
