The UX designer is first and foremost an IT expert in the ergonomics of online media. He creates a site or an application from scratch. He can also redesign a part of a multimedia support. Some of them have a desktop specialization (on computer), while others work only on mobile.

Either way, their primary mission remains the same: to provide a customer experience that is both interactive and intuitive. To achieve this, this interface designer, who deciphers the behavior of Internet users, takes control of the artistic direction of the project. He first analyzes the essential stakes of the web or mobile support, before elaborating the typical user profile. He then creates a prototype, integrating the first graphic elements.

Then, he builds a mock-up. This draft is more similar to the general appearance of the finished product. It respects the predefined graphic charter and includes colors, fonts, tactile buttons, etc. The user is then asked to create a mock-up. Finally, he designs a mock-up of the project to which he makes changes, if necessary, before the final creation.

Such a web designer must therefore have an excellent command of graphic design software such as the Adobe suite (especially XD, Illustrator and Photoshop), as well as Sketch, Figma, etc. However, technical skills are not enough.

This job requires a strong creative spirit and a keen sense of observation and analysis. In addition, as this designer generally works with developers, product managers or graphic designers, he or she must be particularly fond of teamwork and have a great deal of interpersonal skills.

This expert often has a background in web design or web marketing. Then, he specializes in user experience. However, there is no such thing as a typical career path. Some come from a background in art direction. Others first study psychology and then turn to digital.

UX designers are currently in high demand in companies of all sizes, as they bring valuable added value to digital media. UNE® has the user search specialist in its catalog who will be able to assist you. Come and meet him soon!
