An Introduction to UX/UI Design: 

Part 1: “User Experience & Seduction: Why Every Touch Matters”

User Experience design can transform your product value and customer happiness to great limits. However, it may seem at times that your users are quite ambiguous. Julie Jancen says that the practice of designing the friendliest user experiences shouldn’t be rigorous, it should be iterative. To illustrate, she uses examples that highlight: being one step ahead of your user, how to use lean methodologies to solve complex design challenges and how to simplify the customer journey.
