Types of UX

Main content start

User experience design (UX design) is a process that includes various practices from multiple disciplines that enable people to generate and articulate ideas in a logical and user-friendly manner on a website, app, or other digital property. All this is in support of helping users of products and services getting work done.

The Stanford Web Services UX team has broken down UX design activities into five categories to help people across Stanford understand what practices and processes would help them build user-centered websites or other digital properties. The types of UX activities include user research and navigation, UX design, accessibility, visual design, and writing for the web. Within each of these categories, you'll find additional approaches, artifacts, details, and templates that will help support your teams.
