Designing experiences (XD/UX) is the process of connecting the user and a product of basically any kind. The result is a pleasant, convenient and intuitive interaction with the product whether it’s a mobile app, a signage system, a way of brewing coffee or the use of some services.

 

An Experience Designer has a broad view of the product and its use and can identify the strengths and weaknesses of all interaction points. He suggests corrections or creates new solutions that will meet user expectations. Visual communication and infographics strengthen the message and complement product functionality through graphic forms and/or technologies.

Why do we design experiences?

 

We want to tell people that what they are buying is not things, pages, graphic design or services but a whole experience meant to satisfy their needs and values. I believe that the world needs more positive experiences and happy people, that what surrounds us matters. And I want to create positive changes in the world – said Magdalena Therkildsen, founder of Oridesign.

We design experiences, not objects

Courage

We think having courage is about seeing more. Looking for new solutions, stepping out of the box or improving what is already working. Following others is not always a good thing. Doing your thing is courage. Knock, knock –  Fear is at the door, Courage opens the door and no one’s there. What would you do if you weren’t afraid?

Originality

Original means different, other, unique. If you want to stand out it in today’s communication chaos it is good to use your online products and be industry leader. Let’s look for a original solution. There are proven, easy ways to do it. Less is more and simplicity is effective.

Responsibility

The highest quality lies outside the comfort zone. Responsibility along with courage, is one of my strengths according to Gallup® StrengthsFinder. „People with this trait feel responsible for what they promised to do. They are emotionally committed because of values such as loyalty and honesty” – Marta Bara, Gallup Certified Strengths Coach.

Zacznij od ‘Dlaczego’!

Myślę sobie, że projektowanie zaczyna się wtedy, kiedy kończy się oczywistość. Kiedy trzeba wyrzucić to, co zbędne a znaleźć to, co ważne. To są drobne różnice, dlatego nie każda usługa czy produkt są udane. Dlaczego np. detale mają znaczenie? Bo porządkują, ale też,...

Czym jest Estetyka Doświadczeń?

Estetyka, w mojej definicji, to wewnętrzne spotkanie ze swoją wrażliwością poprzez wartości, jakie mamy w sobie, a nie opisanie czegoś. To filozofia doświadczania, która pociąga za sobą pytania o wartości na piękno, duchowość i emocje. Stąd dla każdego może znaczyć...

UX Design – dla kogo?

Praca User Experience Designera to cały wachlarz możliwości i kompetencji. To nie jest prawda, że UX projektuje tylko makiety i grafikę. UX to wszystko, co wpływa na interakcję użytkownika z danym produktem, od rozpoznania problemu, po wdrożenie nowych rozwiązań. To...
