Ever wonder the difference was between UX and UI? Here’s a great article from Adobe that sets things straight.
“The simplest definition I am able to come up with is this (you be the judge if it’s good enough):
- UX design deals with the entire interaction that a user has with a company, its products, services, website, app, and so on. UX touches upon the entire journey a user embarks on when they decide to give “something” a chance. It covers the complete overall experience that a user has with that “something.”
- UI design, on the other hand, deals with the specific things that the user will actually interact with while on that journey.
Or, in other words, UX deals with purpose, while UI deals with appearance and functionality”.
