Top UX Designers in Boston

When did you last look at the user journey on your website? If it's been a while, it may be time to revisit it to make sure you aren't losing customers and find a UX/UI agency to help. UX stands for user experience, which is how a user engages with a website, application, software, or marketing platform. UX design comes with many benefits. Good UX design can cut costs on web development, increase a company’s revenue, motivate users to interact with your content, increase customer loyalty, and make it more likely that customers will suggest your product to others in their network.

UX design costs vary based on the experience and ability of the UX designer. In general, app and website design costs anywhere from $5,000 to $30,000. Some freelance user experience design agencies work for as little as $25, but on average, UX designers charge $75 per hour.

Luckily, Boston has some of the best user experience agency to hire. Use our list to find and connect with user experience agency in Beantown. Evaluate their case studies, project types, and client reviews to determine which company is the best fit for you.
