A true user experience designer is part interaction designer, visual designer, product manager, business strategist and communicator wrapped into one. It's the sort of knowledge that only comes with experience and years of honing one's craft.

The benefit of having a designer as a product manager is that no part of the product vision is left at chance. The meticulous nature of a designer means everything is take into account from choice of font to choice of platform.
A combination of knowledge and experience surrounding customer research, interaction design, visual design, and business development. UX design means multidisciplinary. It's both left and right brain.

It's about getting to know the trends, your customer, and your competition. The biggest question for most businesses isn't if they should do research, but what kind and how much.
EXPERIENCES ON PURPOSE

Visual design is much more than pretty graphics. It's the intelligent application of brand, aesthetics and user affordances that promote a company's product and services. It puts your digital product in a positive light and makes the user experience delightful and easy to use.
