This article is about three key elements of great UX design- Affordances, Signifiers, and Feedback. Affordances are features that enable users to interact with an object, signifiers are clues that guide users to what to do next, and feedback is a great way of building trust and reassuring the user that they’re on the right track. Introductory and advanced courses are available to learn more about UX Design, UI Design, Web Development, Data Analytics, Digital Marketing, and Product Management. Feedback can help us correct course before it’s too late and can make us feel connected to a product and understood. Signifiers can be explicit textual information, sound, texture, lighting, color, symbols, or even proximity of objects to one another.
