5 Traits of Highly Successful UX Designers

What makes one a successful UX Designer? Will it be skills in Sketch, Photoshop, Axure..? It takes more than just software skills when you embark on a career of User Experience design.

Top Reason To Hire A UX Designer

Sure, they know that the user has to submit a form or have GPS enabled, but all these can go wrong if there isn’t a ‘blueprint’ for them to know what they’re doing.

I have come across really neat apps for car booking, but when I saw AVIS‘s app it was quite poorly designed. Worse of all, I could not even login because there wasn’t a sign-up button. So, for this month’s redesign, I decided to embark on a project to create a much better UI for AVIS. Beginning with identifying the users and their needs, I know from my girlfriend’s experience, people tend to go to car renting outlets in a split second decision. Unlike planning for a flight, users tend to want immediate, hassle-free arrangements with the rental company. Users need to feel from the UI the comfort that AVIS is reliable, responsive and professional. I believe…    read more
