How UI and UX will change ?

How UI and UX will change ?

Take a look around you and you will notice that everything has been designed, UX and UI are everywhere. 

Before we take a peek at the future of UI and UX design, let’s look at where we are now. What are they? What the difference between them? How they work together? Then How will they change ?

What is UI ?

A user interface is the point of interaction between the user and the product they are using. So, UI design focuses on all the visual and interactive elements of a product interface, such as buttons, menu bars, icons, and more.

consists of two major parts: visual design, which conveys the look and feel of a product; and interaction design, which is the functional and logical organization of elements.

People tend to believe that things that look better will work better. So a good user interface is functional, reliable, and enjoyable to use. Which make designers aim to create interfaces which users find easy to use and pleasurable.

What is UX ?

User experience (UX) refers to any interaction a user has with a product or service. UX design considers each and every element that shapes this experience.

UX Design is an umbrella term that covers different disciplines involved in designing a digital product.

These include, amongst others, information architecture, interaction design, usability engineering and human-computer interaction.

The goal of UX design is to create easy, efficient, relevant and all-round pleasant experiences for the user.

UX is everything, everything is UX. 


What is the Difference between UI and UX ?

Before we talk about the differences let’s see these examples: 

1- Iceberg is always used to describe the difference between UI and UX , UI is everything above the surface and UX is everything below the surface. 

2- Imagine you’re designing a house. UX would be the foundation, while UI would be the paint and furniture.

So the difference are :

  • UX design is all about identifying and solving user problems; UI design is all about creating intuitive, aesthetically-pleasing, interactive interfaces.
  • UX design usually comes first in the product development process, followed by UI.
  • The UX designer maps out the bare bones of the user journey; the UI designer then fills it in with visual and interactive elements.
  • UX can apply to any kind of product, service, or experience; UI is specific to digital products and experiences. 

How UI and UX work together? 

“Something that looks great but is difficult to use is exemplary of great UI and poor UX. While something very usable that looks terrible is exemplary of great UX and poor UI.” Helga Moreno

So in the development process, it's the UX designer who decides how the user interface works while the UI designer decides how the user interface looks.

As it is a collaborative effort, the two design teams work closely together in building the product's experience and interface.

How will UI and UX will change ?

UI and UX are simply just evolving with the times , so here are some key adaptations and trends we can expect in the future:

UX and UI will Work alongside AI.

AI will definitely make the job of UX designers faster and easier as they’ll be able to hand off most of the data analysis to AI systems and put more energy into their designs.

The bar  of UI and UX will be raised 

The bar for what’s considered “great” design will raise even higher. This goes beyond designing a beautiful app. The greatest apps of this year will be the ones where the design and the user experience work perfectly together to create a truly delightful user interaction.

Large imagery is here to stay 

Over the last eight years or so, we’ve seen the proliferation of huge imagery that spans an entire web page, or the so called “Hero” image. This design trend is still going strong and will only grow stronger.

These are just a few predictions for the design trends we’ll see this year, but there is no limit to what technology can do or reach. Now is a fantastic time to enter the UX field and witness the incredible advances it will bring throughout the next decade.
