Here at Telerik, our goal is to help you develop experiences. We’ve got a long history of providing tools to help developers deliver great value for their customers. But maybe sometimes you need a little help figuring out just how to make your customers happy. That’s where the user experience (UX) designers at Telerik Services come in.

Generally, UX designers study people’s interactions with a system and how those interactions then affect those people. In your case, you’re probably planning to create a web, mobile or desktop application or perhaps some blend of those. Our UX designers can help you create a plan to make your application enjoyable and desirable for your customers.

Traditionally, User Experience Design encompasses many disciplines, as shown here by Dan Willis:

Although UX design deliverables are useful, sometimes discussing sketches on a whiteboard can get your project further ahead much quicker.
