What is UX design?

In broadest terms, user experience (UX) design is the process of creating new, usable, and scalable products. A combination of tools, methods, and problem solving frameworks, UX designers work at the intersection of branding, design, usability, and functionality and stay focused on solving problems for their user, in every user state.

Take a moment to think about your favorite website or mobile app. What makes you love it? Is it intuitive to use? Did it feel familiar the first time you used it? Maybe it even has an uncanny way of knowing what you’ll want to do next? Odds are, a UX designer spent hours researching and designing that product so you could have a seamless experience.
