What is a UX, Product & Service designer?

What is a UX designer?

A UX (user experience) designer is a professional who designs and creates user-centered digital products and services, focusing on enhancing the overall experience of the users. This includes conducting research, creating wireframes, prototypes, and conducting user testing to validate design decisions. The goal of a UX designer is to create products that are not only functional but also intuitive, enjoyable, and accessible for users.

What is a product designer?

A product designer is a professional who designs and creates physical or digital products, from conceptualization to final execution. They take into consideration user needs, market trends, and technical constraints to design products that are not only aesthetically pleasing but also functional, usable, and profitable. Product design encompasses a wide range of industries, including consumer electronics, furniture, toys, and medical devices, among others. The role of a product designer may involve research, prototyping, testing, and collaboration with cross-functional teams such as engineers, marketers, and manufacturers.

What is a service designer?

Service design is a field that focuses on improving the quality and experience of services, which can be tangible (e.g. a physical product combined with accompanying services) or intangible (e.g. a purely digital service). A service designer is a professional who designs and improves services by taking a user-centered approach and considering the entire service experience, including the pre-service, service itself, and post-service touchpoints. The role involves conducting research, prototyping, and testing service experiences to ensure they meet the needs and expectations of the users and other stakeholders. Service design can be applied to various industries, such as healthcare, finance, and transportation.
