UX – How different is it from UI

User Interface (UI) Design,  User Experience (UX) are commonly used terms, but many people often have difficulty differentiating between the two. It’s very important to know the difference between these two before designing or redesigning any Mobile app or website.

UX encompasses a person’s perceptions and responses that result from the anticipated use of a product, system or service.It is all about approaching applications as the user. It is responsible for the emotion of the user when interacting with the interface or product.

UX is the intangible feel, flow & simplicity design of a strategy that brings a solution. It uses all the UI controls to develop a good looking application.

UI refers to the aggregation of approaches and elements that allow the user to interact with a system. It is what users see when they access an application. It is responsible for everything that a user will see on the interface.
UI is the tangible buttons, forms and images, that are commonly used for organizing content on the device screen, providing means for user navigation or notifying about application status changes.

UX Designers combine their research and design skills together to understand the user needs and produce solutions according to their requirement.
UX Designer = Research + Design

UI Designers fill the middle ground by combining both design sensibilities and technical skills together.
UI Designer = Design + HTML/CSS/JS

The principle elements of UX are

  • U—Usability

The principle elements of UI are

UX Designers focus on the structure and layout of content, and navigation.The types of deliverables they produce include site-maps, user flows, prototypes and wireframes, branding etc which are more focused on the underlying structure and purpose of the software.


UI Developers focus on the way the functionality is displayed and the fine detail of how users interact with the interface. They produce the visual comps and functioning front-end code.

UI and UX design are interrelated and need both to create simple user centered products. User Interface and User Experience are two very important factors which will take your brand or business close to your customers. The difference between good products and great ones is a great user experience. People expect products to be intuitive, beautiful and user-friendly. Design and UX will also create an atmosphere of confidence, trust and establishment.

With the explosion of social media and smart devices, customers are becoming incredibly sophisticated, elusive, and empowered. As a result, the dynamics that govern the relationship between brands and customers is evolving.

User experience is the entire look AND feel of a product, system or service. Today user experience design can make or break your business. A UX strategy can enhance the customer-experience and increase brand-awareness and build brand-loyalty for new and existing customers. The primary function of UX is the development of an architecture that creates a delightful, emotional, and sensory experience.
