Designing For Experience in an age of expectation

Many designers seem to have a firm and unrealistic belief in how they can craft the user experience of their product. However, UX depends not only on how something is designed, the human-computer interaction (HCI), usability or IA, but should take other aspects into consideration, such as emotional, aesthetic, affective and experiential variables.

The stimulation that a product provides depends on the individual user’s experience with similar products.

UX also depends on the context in which the product is used. A situation goes beyond what can be designed. It can determine why a product is being used, and it can shape a user’s expectations. We can design the product or service, and we can have a certain kind of user experience in mind when we design it. However, there is no guarantee that our product will be appreciated the way we want it to be. So, the first step in designing for UX is to understand what the user experience is all about.
