Rosie Allabarton

UX design is pretty big news right now. Whether you work in e-commerce, the arts, finance or education, UX design practices already play a big part in your industry.

You might have already picked up some UX terminology or techniques in your job; maybe you’ve looked at session recordings, heatmaps, or user feedback. Ready to put your knowledge to the test? Take our short quiz and find out how much UX lingo you really know!

The buzz around UX design is such that jobs, not to mention salaries, in the field are increasing exponentially year on year as businesses begin to recognize the positive effects having a UX designer on board can and does have on conversion rates, returning customers and higher sales. Not to mention user satisfaction and retention.


Although ‘UX design’ is still a relatively recent phenomenon - with the name itself not being coined until the 1990s - the elements which make up the UX design process are in and of themselves practices you could very well recognize from working in a user-focused environment. You may even be performing UX design as part of your current role without realizing it!

Ask yourself the following questions:

  • Do you gather research about your customers and try to imagine what they are like?
  • Do you work on improving the ‘happiness’ of customers?
  • Do you try to make your website or product as user-friendly as possible?

If you’re doing any of these things, then you probably already know one or two things about UX design.

But how much do you really know?

We’re going to ask you 16 crucial questions that will assess your UX design knowledge. Some will be easy, some will be more of a challenge, and others will be for experts only.

By the end of the quiz we’ll be able to tell you exactly which level you’re currently at and the next steps you’ll need to take to fill in the gaps. And if you really have no idea what UX design is, then have a read of this comprehensive guide to the field first, and then come back. Good luck!
