What is User Experience (UX)?

UX (User Experience) is essentially the journey and how a person feels as they navigate through a system. UX shapes the customer’s perception of the service, product, or company through UX design. UX design includes brand, fonts, colors, layouts, and so on.

Why is UX Important?

Since UX is a customer’s journey through a system, UX tries to fulfill their needs as they venture through that system. It tries to create positive experiences for the customer to keep them loyal to a product or brand. For example, if your website is not optimized, users will have a negative experience; thus leaving your site and never coming back. Think of your website as a digital representation of your store; if a customer walks in and can’t find what they’re looking for, they’re going to walk away. For most customers, you’ll only get one chance to get it right.
