Introduction

Hello, my name is Steven Claessens. I'm just some guy who is passionate about easy to use things.

What

The overriding principle in (web) design is that your product needs to be obvious, self-explanatory. Users should be able to "get it". When creating a website or web application the most important job is to get rid of the question marks.
More and more companies are talking about user experience (UX) these days. There is a better awareness that clients should love our websites, apps, products and start-ups. But user experience is a very blurry concept. Consequently, many people use the term incorrectly. Furthermore, many designers seem to have a firm (and often unrealistic) belief in how they can craft the user experience of their product. However, UX depends not only on how something is designed, but also other aspects.
