An Introduction to UI/UX.

Chinaza Icheke.

What is UI? What is UX?

  • First things first, UI is not UX.
  • UI Design (User Interface Design), is a humble section of a much broader term; UX (User Experience Design).
  • UX, is under another term CX(Customer Experience), but for now we will focus just on our dear UI/UX.

A Visual Representation.

UI makes it pretty. UX makes it usable

UI Design.

  • UI Design is the visual representation of a service or product.
  • It is essentially the link between the user and a product, in our case, digital products.
  • UI Design combines shapes, typography, layouts and other factors to allow for a fluid and natural interaction between users and digital products.

Who is a UI Designer?

  • A UI Designer is responsible for the final feel of a product.
  • Such a person must ensure that this final feel must be readable, usable and also devoid of distracting elements.

What is wrong with this design? (Asides the unnecessarily dramatic text and general weirdness. LOL)

UX Design.

  • UX Design is majorly focused on how to make products very easy to use.
  • If the role of a UI Designer is defining the look and feel of a product, the role of a UX Designer is to determine how it will work.
  • UX Design is the fun part. You get to anticipate the user's needs and respond to them.
  • UX is where most of the problem-solving lies.

Product Design.

  • The Holy Grail itself.
  • Product Design combines both UI Design and UX Design with a bit of research.

Are there any questions dears?
