UI Designer Job Profile

A UI Designer, also known as a User Interface Designer, creates all of the screens that a user will move between when using a website, app, or video game and the graphic design components that allow this mobility.

Because UI design is a part of the UX design process, UI and UX are occasionally misused interchangeably, and newcomers to the industry may not grasp the distinction between a UI and UX Designer. Although they both have the same aim – creating a great user experience - UI design is a distinct aspect of the UX design process and is crucial in its own right.
