An Overview of UX & UI


An Overview of UX & UI

  • 22 Oct 2015
UI & UX are the two most important terms in digital designing. You can think of UI as the saddle, the reigns, and the stirrups, whereas UX can be thought of riding the horse and roping the cattle.

This is what how it was considered in the old days. No matter how this may sound, there are still a lot of misconceptions and complications which can come around when it comes to differentiating between the UI and UX designs. Even the concept has been around for quite some time, it still causes the community to go into a complete stir whenever it’s brought up.

The interesting thing about both these terms is that there are people working in a field which get paid more only because they act and know the differences between both these fields and most of the time, they are harnessing  the knowledge of a little bit of both.

The standardized definition of User Interface design is termed as the part of the product which the user faces when looking at the site while the User experience is something which they feel when looking at a site. The user experience can be taken into a broader spectrum and it’s tested and known through various tools.

Furthermore, a good user experience is part of all good user interfaces, but not all user interfaces are good at providing a good user experience. In other words, you can say that a good user interface is an important inner element of a good UX.

The infographic published below gives a visual explanation between both these terms. For any query or assistance, you can feel free to consult with the UI/UX professionals of Medialinkers, web design agency in Kennesaw. Read out the Medialinkers Reviews to learn more about the company.
