Frequently Asked Questions
What is the difference between UI and UX design?
UX design is the craft of making a user’s experience as effective, efficient, and pleasant as possible, especially when interacting with digital products. Essentially, it’s the process of designing products with the user in mind.
UI design, on the other hand, refers to all the visual design elements the users of a website, app, or piece of software (or mobile device, or even appliance) interact with. The "UI" in "UI design" stands for "user interface."
UI design, therefore, has a narrower focus than UX design, which concerns a user’s entire journey from beginning to end. These two specialties must work seamlessly together to create a strong user experience.
Will I earn a UI design certificate from this course?
