User Experiences that Matter
With so many wildly successful businesses out there, we are left wondering what they did to get there and how they stay there. Is there a magic bullet? Did they make a deal with the devil? The answer is actually far more simple than you’d imagine. It turns out that they just value their customers by creating great user experiences for them. Whether it’s their product, their website, or even their customer service – a business rises or falls on the experience their customers have.
In User Experiences that Matter, I give you an introduction to creating great user experiences by focusing on the human using the product.
1. What is UX Design?
Let’s start by understanding what User Experience really is, what it isn’t, and why it matters. Our first chapters will clear these up as I think it’s important that we are all on the same page.
- UX Design Explained
- UI Design – UX’s Nephew
- What UX Is and What It Isn’t
- Everyone is a UX Designer, Even You!
- The Extra Effort for Great UX
- UX Design as a Problem Solver
2. Creating User Experiences
One of the virtues I hold dear as a UX Designer is my curiousity about how things work. I’ve had the opportunity to meet and work with so many talented people that I could likely do an entire book with just interviews.

3. Designing for People
User Experiences are created out of love and a deep desire to make things better. These final chapters will cover just this – the importance of creating something for PEOPLE rather than “users”.
- Growing Relationsships by Understanding Value
- Time vs. Attention
- UX is Much More Than Software
- MVP – Minimum Viable Product
- Pain, Dream, Fix
- Designing with Emotions in Mind
- Change is Quick, Results Take Time
- Built to Last

Beware of friendly Swedish User Interface Designers who come equipped with positive open attitudes and sharp clean design principles. They are usually right, just nod and agree.
