Questions & Answers?

The term ‘user experience’ (or UX) describes the interaction a person has with a product or service. UX designers are focused on creating an enjoyable user experience. UX accomplishes this by optimizing things like the aesthetic design of a product’s user interface (the look and feel of the menus, buttons, screens, etc. used to interact with a product), navigation design (the layout users follow to get to different parts of the product), and overall product usability (the level of effectiveness, efficiency, and satisfaction a user experiences when using a product to achieve specific goals).

A good UX designer will understand why a consumer wants a product, what the product should do or how it should perform to be effective, and how the product will work to be the most functional and pleasing to the user. As a discipline, UX design is a combination of methods and tools that allows designers to solve real problems and craft functional, reliable, and enjoyable products. The field of UX design is focused on making sure all aspects of the user’s experience with the product are thoughtful, accessible, and useful.

UX Designers are also known as Interaction Designers, UI/UX Designers or Experience Designers. The golden rule of UX design is user-centricity. While each company and each team within a company expects different deliverables from a UX designer, the most common ones are - User research reports, User personas, User journey maps, Paper prototypes, Wireframes.  

The average salary for a user experience designer is €58,671 per year in Dublin. The average salary for a user experience designer is £50,359 per year in London. (Source:, February 2021. UX designer salaries in Dublin/London)
