What does a UX designer actually produce? Here, we will explore the concept of UX Deliverables, a term that describes the outputs of a UX design process during its various stages. The deliverables produced by UX designers vary according to their role in the design team and also depending on the methods and tools used by each role. We will provide an overview here of some of the most common types of deliverables.
A UX design process typically follows something similar to a design thinking approach, which consists of five basic phases:
Empathize with the users (learning about the audience)
Define the problem (identifying the users’ needs)
Ideate (generating ideas for design)
Prototype (turning ideas into concrete examples)
Test (evaluating the design)
