User Experience: Definitions and Features

Tubik Studio considerations on definitions of UX for web/app design. Six bullet points concluded from the explanations of user experience essence and role.

Nowadays UX (User experience) is the integral part in designing any site or application. Considering its importance in the process of design is unavoidable on the way to success. The more people think about it and work on it, the more different definitions appear to this phenomenon. It’s easy to get lost in the loads of them, especially if you just start your way as a UX designer.


Here we gathered six popular definitions for User Experience in order to concentrate what the professionals think about its features and role. Having based on those great explanations, we try to generalize main thoughts to be involved in of UX designer’s work.


1. Understand your user


User experience (UX) focuses on having a deep understanding of users, what they need, what they value, their abilities, and also their limitations. It also takes into account the business goals and objectives of the group managing the project. UX best practices promote improving the quality of the user’s interaction with and perceptions of your product and any related services.

2. Make the product simple and joyful


The first requirement for an exemplary user experience is to meet the exact needs of the customer, without fuss or bother. Next comes simplicity and elegance that produce products that are a joy to own, a joy to use. True user experience goes far beyond giving customers what they say they want, or providing checklist features. In order to achieve high-quality user experience in a company’s offerings there must be a seamless merging of the services of multiple disciplines, including engineering, marketing, graphical and industrial design, and interface design.

3. Practice the art of planning


User experience (UX) is the art of planning a product’s design so that interactions with the completed product will be as positive as possible. User experience design addresses all aspects of how a product or service is perceived by users.

4. Make the experience valuable and dynamic


User eXperience (UX) is about how a person feels about using a system. User experience highlights the experiential, affective, meaningful and valuable aspects of human-computer interaction (HCI) and product ownership, but it also covers a person’s perceptions of the practical aspects such as utility, ease of use and efficiency of the system. User experience is subjective in nature, because it is about an individual’s performance, feelings and thoughts about the system. User experience is dynamic, because it changes over time as the circumstances change.

The User Experience is everything that happens to your users when they interact with your business or organization via your website, application or online communications. It includes everything they see, hear and do as well as their emotional reactions.
