UX / UI design
Isn’t UX and UI design pretty much the same thing?
If we’re talking in terms of ISO standards they’re related, but not the same. UX and UI design have different associated standards. The main standard for UX is ISO 9241 - “Ergonomics of Human-System Interaction”. The standard for UI design is a part of ISO 9241. Part 161, to be precise: “Guidance on visual user-interface elements”.
Or maybe part 151, “Guidance on World Wide Web user interfaces”? The point is - there are different types of user interfaces. UI design covers all of them, but in recent times the term has mostly been used to refer to web/mobile app interfaces. This all happens under the much bigger blanket of User Experience design, which covers all different aspects of interacting with machines, devices and programs.
If we’re talking in terms of how the tech industry uses these terms, they’re often used interchangeably. Especially in early stage start-ups, where roles aren’t as clearly defined as in mature organizations. From this perspective, UX and UI design often mean the same thing.
The best way to differentiate between UX and UI is to look at the goals that these roles have to achieve:
- • For UX, it’s ensuring that users have a great experience with your product - from the moment they first use it, to the moment they decide to stop using it, and anytime in between.
- • For UI, it’s building an interface that’s visually appealing, pleasant to use, intuitive, and provides cues for users to get maximum value out of the system.
