An introduction to UX and UI
These are the first steps in the creation of a website. The students will learn the core fundamentals on how to design user interfaces for both desktop and mobile devices. The student will also gain a deeper understanding into the methodologies used to create and test the User Experience, to enhance the design and provide a better end product for both the client and the end user.
User Interface Designers
A User Interface Designer is concerned with how the product is laid out – they are in charge of designing each screen or web-page that the user interacts with, ensuring that users will follow the communication path the UX designer has already set.
User Experience Designers
A User Experience Designer is focused on how a website **feels**
The responsibility of a UX designer is to make sure a website flows logically. UX Designers are in a way like mini-psychologists, they ask questions that are routed in Behavioural Psychology, in order to understand better what people do when it comes to using digital platforms. They also do what is known as Beta-Testing, so the UX designer can gain a better understanding of how people are interpreting and interacting with the intended communication.
