In today’s technology-driven economy, customer perceptions about a product are being increasingly shaped by the quality of user experience. This is creating a demand in the industry for developing products that render immersive experiences to users every time there’s an interaction. The term UI/UX is a result of such a demand boom in the market. Universities across the world and especially skill universities like Medhavi Skills University (MSU) are thus offering innovative programs in UI/UX for training future young minds in the art of delivering high-end immersive product experiences to modern-day customers. It is a creative field of study that can equip you with a design mindset and innovativeness and prepare you for a world driven by emerging technologies where you can excel in the field of design as a qualified professional.
When you open your phone, you see your lock or home screen. The display that you get to see is the interface, which in commercial terms is called User Interface (UI). A UI is responsible for creating the very first impression of a product with the right display, color, fonts, etc. It is the gateway for the users to start interacting with the product and avail the deeper UX embedded within it.
When you see a good interface, immediately you start navigating through the product for exploring its features. The way in which the product guides you through various interfaces and gives you a sense of convenience and contentment is exactly what User Experience (UX) means. A good UX will always make you come back to the product frequently by making you enjoy every moment of navigation.
An interface is a doorway to a product experience, while an interaction is a journey that the user embarks on while experiencing the product. The former is delivered though UI design, while the latter is accomplished through designing for UX. Without a good UI, you can never experience a good UX. Take for example a smartphone. You can see all the modern sophisticated displays, but when you are trying to navigate, you are finding it hard to get your hands on what you specifically want. Maybe the journey is taking too long or the navigation seems perplexing because of the overwhelmingly complex procedures. This is an example of a good UI, but bad UX. On the other hand, consider yourself getting everything done smoothly while navigation, but the display seems very outdated, non-stimulating and as a result non-engaging. Under such conditions, you might not even consider going through the product, let alone making the purchase. This is the result of bad UI. So in order to holistically deliver good customer experience, both UI and UX need to be complimenting each other.
If you are someone who enjoys adding creative angles to your work and tend to think out of the box, then UI/UX is the right career choice for you. This is because every user has their own set of requirements and preferences when purchasing a product. To meet this demand, designers have to customize their products with uniqueness and novelty in order to engage customers as per their tastes and preferences. As a result, creativity is a natural skill you must have and make active use of it frequently as a professional UI/UX designer.
