The significance of User Experience
The growth in digitization is changing the product world and traditional service concepts. Products and services are becoming capable of learning as well as expandable. Frequently, functions can be adapted to respective users’ needs. Thereby, success is measured by the ability to utilize complex technologies to combine useful services and intuitive functions whilst creating a smooth and positive experience.

The growing significance of an individual experience represents a paradigm shift for companies and organizations. Products and services that are measured on the scale of emotional value must offer users aspects that are markedly post-material.

The UX Design Awards honor holistic design that places an emphasis on people and the entire user experience, thus eschewing classic product categories. The competition takes the entire experience into account - from users’ expectations to the overall user scenario, all the way to the enduring impression.

“Experience or User Experience is not about good industrial design, multi-touch, or fancy interfaces. It is about transcending the material. It is about creating an experience through a device.” - Prof. Marc Hassenzahl
