“I’ve been in three board meetings in the last month where it was painfully apparent that there wasn’t a person in the company who owned the UX philosophy of the product. I’m explicitly saying “UX” (user experience) rather than “UI” (user interface) as each company had an excellent designer and the application looked great. But the UX broke down quickly, especially as you went from novice first time user to experienced user.”
Check out Brad Feld’s Blog Post “Who owns your UX philosophy?” Lots of great comments and discussion.
We’ve been discussing the differences between UX and UI for years. This post discusses corporate-level UX strategy that often does not even exist for well-known companies. Well worth the read!
