User Centered Design

User centered design (UCD), user experience (UX) design, human factors engineering (HFE), reverse social engineering, is all about practicing empathy, putting ourself in the place of our target audience and prospective users to build products, software, and experiences that meet expectations more effectively. Regardless of whether we are doing search engine optimization (SEO), mobile design and development, Section 508 compliance for accessibility, or growth hacking; smart organizations will practice usability and user centered design.
