UI Designer

UI Designer

UI Designers are responsible for designing the visual experience of a user. They design and test a user interface to ensure the experience for end users is seamless and in line with both the use and style of the programme.

UI Designers work exclusively on the interface and interactions a user will have with a digital product and are skilled in suggesting adjustments and improvements to maintain engagement throughout the user journey. They focus on the visual aesthetic and mechanics of the user experience and work creatively within existing frameworks to improve this where possible.

Although similar to UX Design, UI Designers have a stronger focus on the visuals of a product and ensuring these are in keeping with the pre-agreed branding while enhancing how these can appeal to a user.

Key skills

The technical skills needed for a UI Designer include wireframing and prototyping as well as the use of visual design programmes (such as Adobe Photoshop or Illustrator). They usually work in agile methodologies and will need an understanding of web development languages such as HMTL and CSS.
