UI / UX Designer

ContributorInnovatorMaker

Many different fields of design overlap, especially in the world of digital design. After all, the same eye that makes you qualified to determine whether a logo is working applies to an animated set of graphics. The difference lies in your chosen area of expertise. For example, a UI ("user interface") designer is more concerned with looks, aesthetics, and the specific ways a user interacts with technology (usually in apps or websites). UX ("user experience") designers deal more with the entire experience of a given app or website, answering questions like, "how is this whole thing hooked together?" or, "Where should a user go when they click on this button?"

These two skillsets, while sometimes separated, are commonly paired together in one role. Being adept at both makes you a highly employable candidate across software design, advertising, entertainment and more.
