As a user interface (UI) designer, I design what people will see when they use a web app, mobile app, game and so forth.
To do this, I draw on my knowledge of digital branding and front-end frameworks (such as Twitter Bootstrap or Zurb Foundation), as well as my ability to create eye-catching, intricate interactive details.
I often create meticulous, CSS-centric digital style guidelines that will advise the user interface and its future development long after I cease to be involved. Such guidelines will include text styles as well as deconstructed UI elements, free of their given positioning in the interface, but grouped to form a family of available visual interface assets.
A selection of user interface design projects
Many UI designers follow guidelines set by the UX designer, but having both skillsets, I am at a distinct advantage. Depending on the project at hand, I am sometimes able to tackle the user experience and the user interface aspects of a project concurrently. At other times, the user experience process Is more drawn out, and as such the visual aspects and exact layout of the design is better left for later on.
In either scenario, the fact that the user experience research is top of mind when I am progressing your digital product design into the UI phase is definitely a plus when it comes to coherency of vision.
Being both a UX and UI designer also gives me a more comprehensive idea of the product designer or stakeholder’s vision, which can lead to generating new ideas in interaction design or better UX solutions during the visual design stage.
