In addition to the advanced design and technology skills you will have polished as a designer, you will also need an understanding of business goals and user behaviour.

You will have an increased interest in the return on investment (ROI) from your digital projects, such as the conversion rates of a website, and you will use analytics to inform and communicate improvements needed regarding a site’s usability.

The day-to-day

The main day-to-day tasks of a UX designer include:

  • Designing websites, mobile applications, advertising campaigns as well as generating ideas for Immersive experiences ( AR / VR)
  • Producing wireframes (mock-up designs) of a user journey and which pages they land on
  • Split-testing: Conducting AB testing to test what happens if a user does A or B and what impact this has on the customer journey and where they arrive, and MV (multi-variant) testing which tests multiple options of what a user can do
  • Monitoring user groups and user testing platforms
  • Monitoring user journey statistics and analytics such as click-throughs, drop-offs and conversion rates

Key skills

  • Advanced design skills: you need to understand how design works and be a proficient user of digital design software packages such as Adobe Creative Suite
  • HTML, CSS and SCSS skills to mock up digital pages
  • Great understanding of Wordpress and can built sites from scratch without using an existing theme or framework
  • An understanding of UI and UX principles and methods
  • Analytics skills: An ability to use tools such as Google Analytics to obtain and interpret data about the usage of a site, such as identifying where drop-offs occur and analysing the conversion rates
  • An understanding of how to manage change, from identifying a problem, such as a high drop-off rate, to how to solve it
  • An ability to see things from the user’s viewpoint
  • An excellent attention to detail
  • Communication skills: you need to be concise with your opinions and you will need to make informed decisions backed by data, to help improve the usability of a website or application
