Our instructor... was clear, detail oriented, and made the learning environment safe and collaborative. We got a lot of real world examples from him, and all the little details he shared made this entire course special, and more than simply reading a textbook.

Overall, I'm a big advocate for Brainstation's courses - they've proved to be extremely valuable in my career.

The highlight of my learning experience was finishing the course with a tangible case study to add to my portfolio... One of the most valuable skills I learned with UX/UI, is understanding how important it is to follow the design process, as it has been developed for a reason.

UI Design Certification FAQ

UI Design 101

What is the Difference Between UI and UX Design?

Standing for "user interface design," UI design refers to all the visual elements on a website, app, mobile device, piece of software, or even an appliance that a user interacts with. UX design is the craft of making the experience that a user has as efficient, intuitive, and pleasant as possible, especially when interacting with digital products. In other words, UX design is the process of designing products with the user in mind.

Because UI design is concerned specifically with the interfaces that a user engages with as opposed to their entire journey from beginning to end with a product, UI design has a narrower focus than UX.

Typically, UX and UI design must work seamlessly together to create great products with strong user experience, visual appealing user interfaces, and optimal functionality.
