Every detail contributes to associations and judgements users make about your company

“Designing interactions and guiding experience is more than interface design or usability tricks. Every piece of interaction will speak to the user.

What makes people passionate, pure and simple, is great experiences

“What makes people passionate, pure and simple, is great experiences. If they have great experience with your product [and] they have great experiences with your service, they’re going to be passionate about your brand, they’re going to be committed to it. That’s how you build that kind of commitment.” - Jesse James Garrett

The web designer’s job is to create pages that are unmistakably engaging

“The experienced web designer[’s]... job is not to whine about emerging commonalities but to use them to create pages that are distinctive, natural, brand- appropriate, subtly memorable, and quietly but unmistakably engaging. If she achieves all that and sweats the details, her work will be beautiful. If not everyone appreciates this beauty—if not everyone understands web design—then let us not cry for web design, but for those who cannot see.” - Jeffrey Zeldman

It is the experience first, then the messages

“Experience design should not be solely brand focused; instead it should not be too branded focused. It is about designing delivery of customer needs, so naturally it should start with the customers. It should form the core of a go-to-market strategy of any brand. It is the experience first, then the messages.” – Idris Mootee
