What is at the top of the UX pyramid?

Idea in Brief If you do a Google search on “UX pyramid”, you get lots and lots of UX pyramids. If you take a closer look, you’ll see that most people agree about the bottom of the pyramid, but the top differs. What belongs at the top? At the top of Maslow’s hierarchy of needs, we find self-actualization: the desire to become the most that one can be. What is the most UX design can be?

  • UX aligned to strategy – Focussing on the things that are bigger than the application is strategy.
  • UX shaping strategy – Most strategists get strategy, but getting digital is a different game and UX designers with a feeling for strategy can help shape engaging strategies.
  • Game changing UX – UX design can help change the game. That is the top of the UX pyramid for this author. UX design is about uncovering the deepest needs of people and creating solutions that solve these fundamental needs that they didn’t even know they had in an engaging way.

Big brands go direct to the consumer in a crisis
  • Spurred by the coronavirus pandemic, some of the worlds biggest brands are opening online stores serving products direct to customers’ homes
  • PepsiCo, Nestlé and Heinz all launched direct-to-consumer (D2C) offerings in lockdown, appealing to those who couldn’t leave their home, but were dead set on their favorite ketchup or kombucha brand.
  • Newly hatched D2C brands are now creating their own databases, analyzing behavioral and sales data to maximize marketing and profits. They are A/B testing – comparative user-experience research – new offers online and using their websites as labs for product research and development.
  • What the pandemic has taught many companies is D2C e-commerce isn’t just for smarter speciality startups that don’t want legacy retail and big overheads; it’s for all brands looking to drive preference, loyalty and repeat sales through a directly owned relationship.
  • “We believe there will be a ‘lockdown loyalty effect’. Consumers will remember the brands and retailers that got them through the darkest lockdown days,” Hugh Fletcher, global head of innovation at Wunderman Thompson Commerce concludes.
