What is UX Design?

What is UX Design?

Ever wondered, “What is UX design really all about?” Recently, Kenzie Academy UX Facilitator Mya Williams explained the fundamentals of UX design in an Intro to UX webinar. If you missed it, you’re in luck: we’re sharing the recording online so you can use it as a learning resource. Access it here

Mya gives an overview of the responsibilities of a user experience (UX) professional, shares what UX Designer salaries typically look like, and gives insight into the myriad career options in the field. As a sneak peek, here are a few of our favorite quotes from the free webinar: 

“User experience design is a subcategory of product design. We are product designers for digital products. UX Designers decide how apps look and feel in the hands of users before they’re built by developers.” 

“We’re the brains of an app or a service, the thought behind all of it, the functions of it. UX Designers figure out all of the theory behind a product.”  

We’ll introduce you to the relatively new field of user experience (UX) and explain how it marries design with technology. Check out the video for free here or learn more about our part-time UX Design Career program
