The terms “UX Design” and “UI Design” are some of the most confusing terms used in multiple industries. But what exactly these terms mean in tech industry field.
For beginners, UI stands for User Interface Design and UX stands for User Experience Design. Although “UX Design” and “UI Design” both are the part of the design process and came together with their distinctive role. We can say a great product experience only starts with UX and followed by UI design.
User Experience Design (also known as UXD or UED) is a process that is more concerned about user’s feelings and their perceptions And mainly focused on the ease of use of the product as well as enhancing the overall pleasure when customer interact with the product. In short, we can say UX designer make sites easier to navigate with highest user satisfaction.
UX designer role is too complex and most challenging in terms to refine any product and make it successful in the market.
A user interface (UI) Designer is mainly focused on how the products are formatted. UI is concerned with the design and the structure of the product i.e the look and feel of the product. UI Design is about what will appear on your screen, what kind of color it would be and how it will be performed. Its a key role for a designer to maintain the consistency throughout the product in terms of color and elements that are used in the product.
Usually, UI designers have an A+ sense of imagination of how the interactions will play around the user journey.
In a single line, we can wrap the both of these terms like- “UX is the overall experience a user has with the product, and UI is the things the user will actually interact with and see”.
