Techopedia Explains User Experience Designer

A UX designer primarily works on the principles of human computer interaction (HCI). The job involves designing a system that provides the most benefits for an end user in terms of system usability. UX designers research, identify and evaluate all aspects, perceptions and points of interaction between a user and a computer system. These generally include the visual design, information architecture, usability and accessibility of the primary system. Typically, a UX designer has a broad understanding of an application’s or system’s interface as well as of human behaviors/psychology, overall information flow and technical knowledge of the developed system.
