The number of digital devices and interfaces in the world is growing manifold. As the time spent on these digital interfaces is increasing, so is the need for digital design, an umbrella term that encompasses different disciplines - UI, UX, animation, and graphic design, among others.
For instance, Google’s new Page Experience Signal, for instance, will count UX in its overall ranking factors starting in 2021. Elsewhere, Nielsen Norman Group predicts that the UX profession is expected to grow to about 100 million people in 2050.
Studies indicate that there is a competitive advantage for companies with better UX than their competitors. A Forrester research shows that, on average, every dollar invested in UX brings 100 in return.
Today, organizations are looking for designers who can build the next generation of websites, mobile apps, and IoT interfaces and enhance the experience of the product.
