Hello my amazing Oroom people.
My name is Maya and I'm a UX (user experience) Specialist.
I'm working on a survey and I would really appreciate if you guys can give me a hand by answering the following:

1. In your opinion, what does user experience really mean? (what does it really do?)
2. Who should benefit from UX designers? ( what kind of companies should employ UX designers? )
3. Do you think user experience thinking can help you with your career?

It would be great if you can start your answer with: a) your gender, b) your age, c) the country you are living in, and d) your field of work ( example IT, civil engineer, manager, creative director... )

Thank you :D

    1- user experience is as it says, how a person feels about using a certain product, in this case an app or a web page. The better and friendlier the interface design, the more positive the user interaction and satisfaction will be.

    2-any company that doesnt want to see mass app uninstalls or a big drop in its web page visits.
    Unfriendly designs, a user having to press 10 buttons b4 they get to their goal.. lead to frustration, less traffic and less revenue.
    So yea any company thatbwants a user(either internal or external) to stick to its product should hire an UX specialist.

    3-depends on the carreer i would say, a lion tamer or an accountant doesnt really need to focus on UX :)

    Hope this helps

    @mem any UX/UI book you would recommend?
    Hello @Iron Maiden :)
    There are many books you can read. For UX, you can start with the one I attached below "a project guide to ux design". It will help you learn more about UX methodologies. As for UI, I believe you need a software to implement and learn. Like Adobe XD ( for Windows, Mac, Android, and iOS - for free) and Sketchapp ( it's only on mac, and iOS - not free :p)- as for windows there is lunacy ( it's a windows version of Sketchapp).. There are tutorials you can see on youtube in order to learn them. This will help you to sketch some designs and to design a high fidelity product. As for prototyping, I use Invision and Principle.

    Hope I answered your question :)

    Hello :)

    1. In your opinion, what does user experience really mean? (what does it really do?)
    It means a website, software, etc. is so well designed that it is, both, easthetically pleasing and easy to navigate.

    2. Who should benefit from UX designers? ( what kind of companies should employ UX designers?
    Practically all companies have websites and / or use software nowadays...so, everyone.

    3. Do you think user experience thinking can help you with your career?
    Yes.

    It would be great if you can start your answer with: a) your gender
    Female (a real princess unlike some posers!)

    b) your age
    Old enough to be wise, young enough to have a decent grasp on technology :p

    c) the country you are living in
    Here, there, and everywhere

    d) your field of work ( example IT, civil engineer, manager, creative director... )
    Not IT related. But, like I said, every field of work uses IT related products, so we all benefit from the work of good UX specialists.

    Thank you :D
    You're welcome :)
