What is User Interface (UI) Design?


User interface (UI) design is the process of making interfaces in software or computerized devices with a focus on looks or style. Designers aim to create designs users will find easy to use and pleasurable. UI design typically refers to graphical user interfaces but also includes others, such as voice-controlled ones.

UI vs. UX Design

Often confused with User Experience (UX) design, User Interface (UI) design is more concerned with the surface and overall feel of a design, whereas the latter covers the entire spectrum of the user experience. One analogy is to picture UX design as a vehicle with UI design as the driving console. In Graphical User Interfaces (GUI’s), you should create pleasing aesthetics and animations that convey your organization’s values and maximize usability.
