UX and UI
Great web design starts with UX and UI skills. UX is where the rubber meets the road, the designer and the developer help you reach your goals. A custom design considers a couple of disciplines called UX and UI.
UX refers to the user experience while interacting with your product or service. And while this can apply to a physical product's look feel, it also relates to your website visitor. How does it make your visitor feel while looking through your website? Is he or she able to conduct the desired task efficiently? It can be as simple as filling out a contact form or placing an order for a product or service. The goal of the UX designer is to create a seamless, easy to navigate, and overall pleasant experience for the user.
UX designers often combine market research, the product or service attributes, strategy, and design to accomplish the main goal– a conversion, which means to sell your product or service.
UI refers to the visual design of a product, unlike UX, which is more about a visitor's journey to find a solution to a problem. UI will come into play when a visitor navigates your website. How is the look and style of the visual elements, buttons, graphics, colors, and typography, to name a few?
While independent of each other in terms of what they accomplish, UX and UI go hand in hand. The UI design is developed in part by the information provided by UI research.
Working both of these disciplines into a web project will help immensely create a uniques customer experience. Another reason Slocum Studio Designs Around WordPress!
