There’s often confusion over the difference between a UX and a UI Designer, and in smaller businesses, you may find that these roles are combined. Although the responsibilities and stakeholders overlap, there are clear differences between the two roles.
A User Experience Designer
deals with the user’s technical navigation through the product. They construct
the architecture and pathways that guide a user through the app and are
responsible for making this process as pain-free and intuitive as possible.
Once this has been done, it’s the User Interface Designer’s responsibility to
take this infrastructure and make it enjoyable to use. This involves altering
the typography, colour scheme, and graphics amongst other elements to ensure
the user enjoys using the product. The UI Designer is also responsible for user
interactivity - making sure that buttons and calls to action are clearly
presented and journeys are easy to follow. You can read more about the
