The UX glossary term is an essential definition to understand when speaking about the website design and development process. ‘User experience’, or UX Development (generally refers to the process of improving the overall experience of end-users when they interact with a product, an application, a website or an eCommerce platform, with the ultimate objective of providing optimal customer satisfaction.

Since customers are at the epicenter of netamorphosis‘ services (from SEO to Analytics Consulting to UX/UI Design), UX is a constant aspect throughout our work.

What is UX and UI Design?

UX/UI Design work closely together, but operate across different types of roles and meanings. Both aspects are key in helping define a product and both ensure a fast, responsive, resilient and accessible website or eCommerce platform.

User Experience (UX) design

UX design is concerned with how the website feels to users and how they interact with it. It's about making sure the website is intuitive and easy to use by optimizing the flow of the site, ensuring that users can easily find what they are looking for and complete tasks efficiently. UX is dynamic as it’s constantly modified over time due to changing audience demographics, advancements in technology and data insights.

User Interface (UI) design

This is complimentary to UX design and is often included as one of the components within a user experience activity. It focuses on the look and feel of a website, and deals with elements such as colors, fonts, buttons, icons and overall layout. The goal of UI design is to create a visually attractive and cohesive interface that represents the brand or purpose of the website. A well-designed UI enhances the user's interaction with the site and makes it aesthetically pleasing.

Web Development

Web Development refers to the process of building and maintaining websites on the internet, using a variety of coding languages. It involves a combination of technical skills and creative elements to bring web pages to life and make them accessible to users worldwide. Front-end development creates interactive page layouts that function across different devices, using HTML, CSS and JavaScript. While back-end development focuses on data storage, security, hosting and the logic of a site utilizing languages like React, PHP and Python.

The netamorphosis philosophy towards user experience is based on vast industry experience and data analytics.
