What is a UX Design?
People often ask “What is a UX Design?” By definition, UX is designing for the user’s
experience by enhancing usability, interaction, accessibility, and emotion. The term UX
design allows us to reframe what a contemporary web designer does.
A UX designer is someone who understands how users interact with software and focuses
on those users when designing a product.The actual specifications of a UX designer vary
based on the company they work for, but this wide experience includes:
Conducting User Research
In a smaller organization, a UX designer may perform all of these tasks, but in large teams
the responsibilities will usually be divided into specialties. These various designations
include UX Researcher, UX Designer, Information Architect, and UI Designer.
Becoming a UX Designer
The actual method for how you can become a UX designer will vary a bit depending on
where you are currently in your career. A high school student with no experience will
probably have to do more learning on their own, attend a school, or find an internship. If
you’re already employed as a graphic or web designer you might be able to use some
opportunities on the job to start moving in the direction of UX design. No worries where
you’re at, you can choose from these general outlines to improve your UX skills.
Learn the Basics of UX Design
Do The Work
Find Your Strengths
Build a Portfolio
When you’re starting off in one of these new areas, you’ll probably not turn out the best
work. That’s exactly what you want. You need to be exercising until you’re at the point that
you can sell that skill, and it doesn’t come overnight.
Pick one of these areas to get started:
Start wire framing:If you’re currently implementing your design work without any
wire frames, add it to your process. Try wire framing some complex tools to get a lot
of practice (e.g. a login system, a donation form, a social media site).
Do some research: Do you have any active websites? Try learning how people are
using them. Ask family or friends to use them while narrating their thought process
and watch. Resist the urge to be defensive or try to point out what they should be
Learn a new tool: Ultimately learning the concepts and putting them into practice
is more important than any individual tool, but when applying for a job it’s good to
see that you’ve got some knowledge with at least some of the key UX tools.
Here are some more great ways to continue your skills growth:
Start a project – choose something challenging and this will rapidly accelerate your
Read articles from the UX community
Try new design tools
Share your knowledge with others by blogging, answering forum questions, having
conversations on social media, or sharing work with your co-workers
Become the part of the community – find events or participate in online
Attend a conference – this is worth doing at least once to increase your passion for
the field, meet others, and learn
Having UX Designer as your job title is easy. Getting your head around the full process takes
time. Study, learn the tools, read a lot, do projects, get your portfolio out there and get a job.
Enjoy the journey as it is a unique time to be a UX designer.
