Many design agencies use the terms - UI and UX Design often interchangeably. However, it is important to differentiate between these two aspects of the design process.
User Experience (UX) design addresses user’s needs, wants, frustrations, and pain-points by gaining a deep understanding of the user’s entire journey from the packaging, beginning of the product installation to the storage. UX designers fully immerse themselves into all phases of the project, including user and competitive research, workflows, conceptual design, usability testing, and visual design. By comparison, User Interface (UI) design involves shaping the manner in which people interact with a product. It is the layout, feel, and visual designs of the interaction point between a user and a product’s interface.
The best UI UX design agencies will not only understand the important differences between these two disciplines, they will also employ designers who specialize in each and work collaboratively with your team towards providing your product with the best user experience possible.
