Education program “UX/UI Design”
Licensed capacity
Profession: 022 Graphic Design

A UX/UI designer is a specialist who creates interfaces for programs, applications, and websites. UI and UX are two different elements of the user experience.

User Experience (or UX ) is the experience that a user gets when interacting with something, such as a door handle, a mobile application, etc. The task of a UX specialist is to design the most effective product or service that meets the needs of users and the company’s business goals.

User Interface (or UI) focuses on the appearance and layout of a program or application. A UI designer develops the visual appearance of a product: colors, shapes, animations, content, buttons for interaction, input fields, etc.

A UX/UI designer combines the areas of User Experience and User Interface and focuses on making the product easy to use by studying user behavior. This specialist has a high level of empathy to listen effectively, understand users, and develop solutions that solve their problems.
