UX design is all about identifying and solving user problems. User experience design is a human-first way of designing products. UX design usually comes first in the product development process, followed by UI.
User experience (UX) design is interested in how a product will be experienced by the end-users rather than how it looks. It promotes product development that aligns with end users’ wants, needs, ambitions, motivators, and pain points. It focuses on how users may engage with a potential product in the context of their day-to-day lives.
That stated UX design is not only product design. It is primarily a research-based framework that ensures products are suitable to their target markets and are seamless and pleasing to use.
UX designers utilize a variety of marketing, consumer behavior, data analysis, and research skills. They understand their audience, test assumptions, generate ideas, arrive at actionable findings, test those findings, and go back to the drawing board if essential. These steps and recurrence of various actions suggest that UX design is, by meaning, a , iterative, non-linear process.
UX is research-based and concentrates on product experience rather than design details. It delivers results that confirm that products are suitable for end-users and meet their form, functionality, and problem-solving expectations.
UI is design-based and concentrates on how product appearance impacts user interaction. It uses interactive design best practices to confirm that UX insights are made to be attractive, intuitive, accessible interfaces that satisfy its users and bring them where they want to go.
Hourly rates range from $125 to $250 per hour, depending on the experience level of the developer/consultant and if it’s standard front-end development or requires back-end development that affects the core PrintNow code base.
The short answer is we offer both, but generally, customers are more comfortable with a per-project flat rate. Overall, the pricing structure you choose depends greatly on many variables and comes down to what makes the most sense for you.
Charging per hour
Charging an hourly rate is a better option in some scenarios. If the scope of work isn’t clear from the outset, we may recommend this approach. Or we may offer a service to properly define project details to help it move to a per-project flat-rate option. Per-hour pricing also works well for maintenance updates or long-term ongoing projects.
Charging a per-project flat rate
Charging a flat rate makes the most sense when the client brief is clear and structured, and we can predict how much work the project will entail. Some clients are more hesitant to agree to a flat rate. Presenting one flat rate before any work is done can make some clients nervous or cause sticker shock, prompting them to go elsewhere.
