What we're about

Mission Statement:

NUX is Middle Tennessee's official source for User Experience (UX):

Support, promote and teach UX, including experience strategy, content strategy, information architecture, interaction design, user interface, and usability;

Advocate for the value of UX to customers, business, developers and other audiences

What is user experience?

UX or User Experience is everything the user of an app or site touches, sees, clicks, taps, and experiences; where user goals meet business goals.

UX managers and hands-on leads strategize with business and product teams to define strategy, and work with implementation teams to deliver solutions.

UI stands for User Interface, which is the screen or surface a user sees and interacts with. UI comes from the UX and product strategy; UI is the tangible output.
