And we're excited to be part of a new chapter as FileMaker Inc. becomes (again) Claris International, Inc.

UX Design is a broad discipline that includes system analysis, prototyping, user studies, planning, UI development, creating personas and more. When you interact with a system, how do you feel? How effective are you? Good UX maximizes the satisfaction and effectiveness of the user.

It’s about intuiting and promoting real users’ needs. Ultimately, it’s about improving the relationship between people and work.
