What are the key elements of great UX design and how can you improve your skills in creating it?

There are two main areas that contribute to great UX design: usability and user-friendliness. Let’s break down the key elements of each:


  • Useful: Does it solve a user’s problem or fulfill a need?
  • Usable: Can users easily understand and navigate the design?
  • Learnable: Is it intuitive and easy to pick up, even for new users?
  • Effective: Does it achieve the intended goal or task efficiently?
  • Accessible: Can users with disabilities interact with the design?


  • Memorable: Is the design clear and easy to remember for future use?
  • Efficient: Can users complete tasks quickly and without unnecessary steps?
  • Desirable: Is the design aesthetically pleasing and enjoyable to use?
