    No user research at all? Then why do you call it “user experience”?
    Please don’t confuse interface design with user experience design.

    Erinah, that’s because user experience does not actually exist as something in itself, it’s just meaningless waffle. It bears zero resemblance to the original definition of the term (which would cover everything from phone support staff to product packaging).

    Now instead it has been reduced to a confusing catch-all for a particular subset of several distinct design & research disciplines. Referring to a subset of disciplines instead of the entire end to end experience is of course precisely the opposite of what the term was intended for.

    It is understandable that people group different things together beneath it when it term itself doesn’t describe what it contains. There is no reasonable explanation of the words ‘user experience’ that excludes copywriting, for example.
