I was working in print design. Recently i switched into UX. So what are the things I should focus on.

1 Answer 1


User Interface (UI) designer:

  • the what person
  • deals primarily with the visual details, the graphic aspect of applications
  • is more commonly familiar with only the static states of applications
  • partially responsible for focusing the user's attention on elements
  • keeps up with current trends and styles

User Experience (UX) practitioner:

  • the why person
  • many are not designers, and UX is not just about design
  • has his or her hands in every aspect of the product's development
  • is more of a coordinator, project manager and director
  • they concern themselves with everything from the tone and voice of the copy, the information architecture, taxonomy, to the color and texture of the UI elements
  • they focus on research, psychology, testing and advocacy
  • the best UX'ers are the ones that constantly advocate for the user they ensure that everything is balanced and the experience doesn't lose out to other business interests (bottom-line), department conflicts (we need more advertising space) and other non-user minded things

There always got some one who vote and devote just try to gain it from social.

  • Although you'll find that there are basically UX Designer jobs (primarily focussed on design and software - and UX Researcher jobs (Primarily focussed on user research and psychology). Some companies try to do cover both roles with the one person, but personally I think it's such a broad skill range that it's not covered properly.

  • @PhillipW Yeah you are correct. I have this issue, the company I work for officially claims I'm a "Interaction and UX designer", yet I'm also an information architect and visual designer.. even a little bit of front-end developing. It's called unicorn in this business :)

  • I've generally stuck to being an expert on people and the way they think. It has got easier since 2010 since there's more recognition that in a bigger organisation that you need different people to handle the overall UX process.
