Purpose & Journey of YUJ
The name YUJ is derived from a Sanskrit word meaning unite or to join. The purpose of YUJ Designs is a reflection of the purpose of it’s founders. Samir and Prasadd built this brand with the sole aim of offering design solutions which will address business as well as user needs, delivering delightful experiences.
At the time of conception of YUJ, most business models in India most companies were only technologically oriented instead of focusing on providing user experience to the customers. There was a lack of the concept of user experience or achieving business goals through design. This humongous gap inspired the duo to come together to build a solution to this situation.
YUJ Designs started its journey by taking on the initiative to go beyond simply providing design solutions. Instead YUJ educated the clients about design to create more awareness around UX design. A plethora of UX design companies have emerged in the recent years in India. Though customer engagement has turned out to be the key differentiator for YUJ Designs.
The design leaders at YUJ believe, it is important to seek to understand the complete context of the problem quoted by the client. YUJ Designs practices a unique approach to solving the business problems for customers. The design experts here, find the best solutions built off of internal and external subject matter proficiency. They share the learnings and engage the clients as well in the design process. As a result of these decisions, most of the products they have designed have generated a 5x ROI helping the customers stand out from the competition.
