Creating Digital Interfaces (Web And App Based)
UX, UI, Service Design
Depending on the ambition and objectives of your project, working with a Service Designer or User Experience Designer (UX Designer) and a UI Designer is a great way to ensure that the development of your interface is carried out in a holistic way, that it meets a certain number of standards and that the added value of your idea is rightfully being conveyed through the design.
You will find different definitions for these terms below, but the most important consideration is to group together the skills that make sense in accordance with the specific needs of your project.
You may also find very interesting reads and qualitative open-source design resources at the Interaction Design Foundation library. They do a great job of putting together industry news, standards, and articles, as well as working to improve UX Design education worldwide.
UX = User Experience
User Experience (UX) Design is the process design teams use to create products that provide meaningful and relevant experiences to users. This involves the design of the entire process of acquiring and integrating the product, including aspects of branding, design, usability and functions that deliver efficiency, comfort, pleasure and fun as well.
UI = User Interface
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 gestures and voice-controls which helps users to interact with the device.
Therefore, these are transversal and complementary skills that bring wide expertise to the design of your project and will accompany it throughout its development.
