Learnings | Week 1 | Day 001–007 | 100DaysofUX

I can't believe I completed Week one with consistency!! Now I would like to summarize my learning throughout the week.

Let's get started with the Day001 🤸🏽‍♀️

Key points that I learn on Day 1 of this challenge.

  1. What is User Experience(UX)?

User experience is something about users that we take care of while developing a product. UX tells how a product is affecting users in many aspects. Before developing any product, one needs to research and analyze customer behaviors so that the product can affect them the most. That’s how user experience works.

2. What is UX design?

UX design is the process of designing products that are useful, easy to use, and delightful to interact with.

3. What is the UX design process in general?

The design process involves many stages that are mentioned below-

Understand: The first step is to understand user’s needs and requirements. Understanding is very important in order to make a product that will benefit them the most.

Research: After understanding the user, one needs some research about users and the market. For example, if your product needs selling, you need to research the market and your competitors. Research can help you build something that can stand out from the crowd in the market.

Analyze: Then analyze the data collected from the research. Make a blueprint and get started with the building process.

Design: Now, before jumping to building, you need to have a design of your product. Without a proper prototype and design, you can't develop the product completely.

Launch: Now, it is time to launch your product. Get feedback from your team and users, try to modify the product as per the feedback.

Now, Let’s get into Day002 🤟🏽

So, on Day 2, I did a case study on how Tiktok is using an algorithm to make its users stick to the app. I wrote all my understanding in detail in this blog, have a look at it.

Keywords that I learned from this case study-

Dominos effect

Immersive interface

IP sniffing for personalization

Moving to Day003🥳

On Day 3, I did research on Canva Team’s design over the years. You better look at this tweet for more explanation.

You can have a look at this for more details

Some noticeable things-

  • Canva’s logo didn’t change over the years. It remained the exact same 🧐.
  • On a broad level, the major changes were-

The login/sign up page

The background always had a better design. They focused more on making it look like a design website.

Day004 🤩

On Day 3, I learned about the Laws of UX. Well, I didn’t know that would be laws about UX, but there are. Now let's see some of the most important laws. I have summarized every law and how it is used in the design of Netflix in this tweet.

Now, Lets jump to Day005 🕺

On this day, I learned about Journey maps. Well, it took me hours to understand the concept, and finally, I made a journey map for a HealthifyMe user. Before jumping to my design, let's understand some terms that will help you understand journey maps.

What are user journey maps?

A user journey map is a visual representation of the customer experience and is a useful tool for everyone in your company to look at your website from the user’s point of view and can be a key part of user experience design and optimization. It’s used for understanding and addressing customer needs and pain points.

These are some points that one needs to keep in mind before making a journey map.

Now, the final day, Day006 🤪

On the last day of the previous week, I studied User persona. Some key points before making a user persona.

What is a user persona?

A user persona is a semi-fictional character based on your current (or ideal) customer. Personas can be created by talking to users and segmenting by various demographic and psychographic data to improve your product marketing.

Why is user persona is soo important?

User personas help designers shape product strategy and accompany during the usability testing sessions. A deep understanding of user behavior and needs makes it possible to define who a product is being created for and what is necessary or unnecessary for them from a user-centered point of view.

Now, let's see what I make after understanding all these concepts. So I made a person of a HealthifyMe user.

That’s all for today. Hope you enjoyed revising these concepts along with me 🥳. Truly speaking, I learned a lot during this week. Hope to have the same energy throughout this #100DysofUX.

With Love ❤️,
