UX Statistics & Why Your Business Should Invest in Good User Experience

“What we’re seeing now is an experience [being] elevated to being an essential part of product strategy.” - Jesse James Garrett, leading American UX designer  Despite the ROI potential for website UX design investment averaging just under 10,000% (you read correctly), still, only 55% of online businesses bother to conduct any UX testing on their sites. In other words, they fail to give themselves this increasingly crucial commercial edge in what is an increasingly competitive online market. What's more, it’s all downhill from there: in total, businesses lose an estimated $2 billion every year owing to bad user experience.

Product Designer’s role in the Product Life-Cycle

Looking at it historically, just a few years ago we did not have a UX/UI differentiation. Everyone would be responsible for everything. It was just Design. You were a Designer and everything it entails was expected from you: user experience, mobile, desktop, all the way through. There weren’t as many categories and subcategories as there are now. The name Product Designer was mostly related to people who design everyday objects — from glassware, jewellery, furniture, telephones to cars and other machines.
