UX/UI (User Experience and User Interface) Courses

UI and UX are terms that are thrown around a lot across several different work environments, so much so that they seem almost interchangeable. However, there are distinctions between the two, though both are necessary to craft a user-friendly digital product. Here’s a simple definition of both.

UX/UI defined

 

UI design, also known as User Interaction and User Interface Design, looks at the visual design and overall aesthetic that the user will come in contact with. 

UX design, which stands for User Experience Design, captures all aspects of a user’s interaction with the product, from beginning to end. 

UX/UI designer responsibilities

Both UI and UX designers aim to improve a product’s usability and accessibility. They collaborate to conduct user research, project management, critical demographics, liaising with stakeholders, developing the means for user testing, prototyping and building wireframes

The UX/UI skillset and qualities you need

As a job that revolves around the online world, there is a great focus on technical skills, whether that be:

  • Formulating a case study
  • Testing out product designs
  • Succinct UX writing 
  • Familiarising yourself with specific programs (e.g. Webflow, Sketch, Adobe XD, Figma, etc.)

You’ll also need sharp design skills: attention to detail and a flair for creativity, such as the ability to create a balanced colour palette and scaling typography appropriately.
