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.

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