UX UI Design

What are UX Design and UI Design?

User Experience (UX) and User Interface (UI) Design are interrelated disciplines that cover different aspects of creating amazing digital experiences. They both follow a Human-Centred Design (HCD) approach by placing the user at the centre of the design process.

UX Design is the process of creating digital products and services that are useful, usable, and desirable. It is concerned with how a person feels when using an app or a website, whilst UI Design is concerned about how the product looks.

UI Designers craft all the visual elements that a user will interact with, and focus on the interactivity of the interface.

Why study UX and UI Design?

Every time you use a digital product, your experience of it, and the impression it leaves, is the result of “good” or “poor” UX and UI Design. When developing a digital product, both disciplines must be considered to create positive, meaningful and relevant experiences.

UX and UI Design are fast-growing disciplines and people with these skills are in high-demand across all industries. Market trends in Australia show that designers with an understanding of both UX and UI Design have stronger employment outcomes. 

We teach UX and UI Design:

  • As separate disciplines, for students who want to become specialists in one area
  • In courses that cover both disciplines, for students who want stronger employment outcomes and a holistic skillset
