User Centered Design or UCD:
- UCD focuses on user needs and goals, where user data is the determining factor in making design decisions.
- This approach is best at getting designers to move away from their own preferences, and instead focus on the needs and goals of the users.
- Follows the philosophy of "User knows best."
- The user is de-emphasized in favor of the context, but the designer doesn't discount discount user goals and needs.
