This essay will briefly introduce User Experience design, aiming to bring curiosity and extend the understanding through examples within various contexts. Co-design, design thinking, interaction design, accessibility & inclusion frameworks inform and guide UX designers when designing products and systems to solve problems.

UX and the World

Design practices are driven by nature, humans, economy and technology. Mixed (physical-digital) technologies suggest new contexts and new activities — embodied interactions and ubiquitous computing are popular examples. Rapid transformations of resource-dependent processes require solving problems of wider contexts: social, economic and natural inclusion.

Resilient societies of the future require collaborative work and sharing, considering the resources, social fabric and the natural context.
