In most cases, user experience design (UXD or UED) fully encompasses traditional human-computer interaction (HCI) design, and extends it by addressing all aspects of a product or service as perceived by users.[1] User experience is any aspect of a person's interaction with a given IT system, including the interface, graphics, industrial design, physical interaction, and the manual.[2] History[edit] The field of user experience design has roots in human factors and ergonomics, a field that, since the late 1940s, has focused on the interaction between human users, machines, and the contextual environments to design systems that address the user's experience.[3] With the proliferation of workplace computers in the early 1990s, user experience became an important concern for designers.

Elements of User Experience Design[edit] With the rise of the information age, many generalizations of the components have been based on the building blocks of the user experience design of digital systems.

Many products are becoming services and experiences are becoming products that differentiate brands. What does this mean for design and design managers?

The joint venture will aim to help brands create experiences that people actually want to watch, listen to, and experience. The joint venture will be announced Thursday evening at one of the advertising industry’s biggest events, the Cannes Lions International Festival of Creativity in France. Sid Lee Entertainment has been a year and a half in the making, and is an attempt to address a fundamental shift in advertising: away from pushing messages to consumers, and toward creating engaging content. “For the marketing community, this is very important,” said Sid Lee chairman Bertrand Cesvet. “We’re in the age of interactivity and interaction, and a lot of this happens in a digital way. … [An entertainment event] generates consumer engagement in a very visceral, analog way.”
