When Does UX Design Become So Easy?

Racheal 04/01/2017
Having recently graduated from the university yourself, you may search for hot jobs and suddenly find that UX designers get high salary and their work is interesting. You even think you can change the world if you are a UX designer.Suddenly you noticed an advertisement. It tells you that you can become a UX designer after you study their course for 2-3months.Besides, they can provide you with all the resources that you need. That sounds amazing,right?And you go check and pay for it in a hurry.But,is that possible?

Actually,if you calm down and think about it realistically, you will find it is a lie.We have the experience of studying or working for several years. So we need to know that studying is a process. The process of becoming a UX designer is same with becoming a doctor or a lawyer. Nobody can know all the things about a job. Design is like other skills,you have to study it constantly, you can not be a excellent designer just by studying some courses.

What's more,can we find a job after studying all the courses?

To tell the truth, anyone who says that you can find a designer job after studying his course is exaggerating. Because there are only some extremely fortunate people who can do that, while most people can not.Although you studied the course, you are similar to other people who are hunting for jobs. Besides, you have to know,the competition for designer job is fierce. Not only do you have to compete with people whose major is design, but also you have to compete with people who come from other fields.

If the design is so easy, then everyone can be a designer.

We all want to master the UX design skills in a short time,but only people who are so talented can make it. This is like studying coding,it needs hard work,strong willingness and outstanding understanding.

Below are some hand-picked resources that you may find helpful if you want to get started in this industry:

What? You Are Still Doing High-Fidelity Prototype Slowly?

Have you ever spent half a month designing a high-fidelity prototype, but it was denied within a few minutes? So much time and energy have been spent but in vain. I have met similar things so many times. However, such tragedy can be totally averted: the rapid low-fidelity prototype is a wise choice in prototype design.
1. What is a high-fidelity prototype and a low-fidelity prototype?
Low-fidelity prototype: it only focuses on functions, structures and processes; it only provides the most simple frameworks and elements; it generally does not provide color, butexpresses itself in grayscale.

High-fidelity prototype: it provides more visual details; it is almost equivalent to a UI effect picture, and only needs to replace the actual data and materials in the development process.

2. Why make a low-fidelity prototype?
In product development, the goal of a prototype is to express its ideas, functions and content, in order to get feedback and improve the product. The most important challeng…

User Experience Model: Measuring And Understanding Behavior of Users

A good user experience is one of the key success factors for digital business models: How do the users discover the website or application? Do they abandon or leave? Do they use them regularly or even recommend to others? These are about the question of the user experience (UX), which can be measured with specific user experience model. Now, let me show you how to do it.
The performance of digital media can be traditionally controlled by technical metrics such as page impressions, retention time, or conversion rates. They can indicate the behavior of the users on the site, but they don’t predict its cross-platform behavior as well as its behavior outside the product. Either good or bad UX will influence not only the direct use of the product usage, it also has an impact on the brand perception and the customer's behavior. It is, therefore, worthwhile to use the canon of the key performance indicators (KPI) and to raise them regularly. In order to understand the causes and the eff…
