Frequently asked questions on UX UI Design

Frequently asked questions

User Experience (UX) Design is the process of designing for satisfaction and delight by improving the customer’s experience when interacting with products, services and features. While it can apply to the experience of any product or service, UX was born out of digital product design. As a result, the UX profession has a focus on human-centred digital experiences. Simply put, any interaction an individual has with a company and the products or services offered by them is referred to as the ‘User Experience’.

An interface refers to the screen that the customer sees on any digital device, the ‘front-end’ that they engage with. User Interface (UI) Design is the human-centred process that is taken to create the aesthetic experience of a digital product. This includes all of the design elements a user will see on screen: fonts, colour schemes, animations, imagery and buttons.

Balancing theory and practice when learning about UX UI Design is ideal. The best way to ensure you find this balance is to complete a reputable training course in UX UI Design and the more practical the training, the better.

A key feature of our UX UI Design Transform course is that our students work with real businesses and stakeholders. In addition to the theory, we teach students the soft and hands-on practical skills required to work in any organisation. Graduates have provided valuable perspectives and design thinking to some of Australia’s biggest public and private sector organisations.

The average yearly salary as a UX UI Designer in Australia is currently $110,000 (Seek 2022).

Senior UI Designer

UX Elevate

Studying UX design seemed like a natural progression for Ben, who as a designer, had to put himself into the user’s shoes and think about how design would catch users’ attention and assist them. By consistently consuming knowledge about UX and UI Design, Ben became hungry to learn more and as such decided to take his UX Design skills to another level.
