Introduction

Industry experts have predicted that customer experience will overtake price and product as the key brand differentiator by 2020.

The businesses that triumph will be the ones that elevate their user experience from ordinary to extraordinary. *

UX design is in demand, as consumer habits and preferences are constantly evolving for the products and services they use. They have a choice and want that choice to align with their personal values and a meaningful experience.
