UX – Why a refined user experience is the true “new normal” for brands
COVID-19 (coronavirus pandemic) has irreversibly changed the way businesses interact in a rapid way. From walk-in business to online business, a great push is being seen to where everything is done on apps and websites, with services being marketed more online. While this is working for some brands, others are still struggling to pull through.
With the economic upheaval that the pandemic is wreaking, the majority of businesses are striving to ensure that their operations continue to run in some shape or form, while seeking ways to minimize losses by shifting to digital marketing and e-commerce.
Realizing that digital has now become an indispensable part of our lives, the importance of brands promoting their products and services through websites and apps that have a proper, user-friendly User Interface (UI) and User Experience (UX) that makes things easy for customers has never been more important.
In website building and development user interface (UI) is defined as a series of pages, screens, text entry fields, and visual elements such as icons and buttons that are designed to assist the user to interact with a platform or device while UX design refers to how users ‘flow’ through the website or app. 
These two aspects are very important for a website/app design. A well-designed interface speaks to users’ eyes, at the same time an informative and structured look and feel heightened user experience letting them spend more time on that particular website or app and most importantly, take actions. It is for these reasons that a well-designed UI/UX is integral for brand value and a business’s future.
