First of all I want to start with design Design is a process of constant iteration. Design is not just what it looks like but also how it works. Design can cause the identity, mood of a person to feel defeated, at ease, loved etc. I have come to understand that a GOOD DESIGN CAN HELP ME BE THE BEST VERSION OF MYSELF.
I have also come to understand some common mistakes made by non-designers(including myself). They are
- Using of words instead of visual
- Mismatching of fonts
- Lack of negative space
- Failing to create contrast
- Inadequate space between lines
I have also come to understand the meaning and responsibilities of both UI and UX design
UX - USER EXPERIENCE It is the process of enhancing user satisfaction with a product by improving the usability, accessibility and pleasure provided in the interaction with the product
- Strategy and Content
- Wireframming and Prototyping
- Execution and Analytics
UI - USER INTERFACE It is the point of interaction between the user and a digital device or product. The goal of a UI design is to make the user's interaction as simple and efficient as possible through aesthetic means.
- Look and Feel
- Visual Design
- Interaction Design
The main difference between is Ux design is all about the overall feel of the experience, while Ui design is all about how the product's interface looks and functions
I have come to love ui more but would love the learn but Ui and Ux. I have come to understand that in the world of tech, most people don't understand the difference between Ui and Ux design which always cause a mix up when applying for jobs. But with the knowledge of both, I will get to have not only the skill but also an understanding on both my employer and also the user.
