What is UI/UX & Why You Should Absolutely Give a Damn About It

More often than not, I have had to explain the difference between UI and UX to my clients and designers alike. I also remember this being the most dreadful question during our design class tests, because despite having mugged it down from multiple notes we still would get confused.

But after seven years of my professional life as a web designer and developer, I can say one thing for sure: these two are although two sides of the same coin called a successful website design, they are still not similar enough to be used synonymously as it usually is, mostly by the kids just starting in the field.

Even if you are getting this done from a firm or your own IT department, as the end client or supervisor, you have the equal need to understand what is it that you are actually expecting from your team, and the possibilities as well as limitations thereof.

UX or user experience, is the ultimate end result or (as the name suggests) the experience that users will ultimately derive from your website, or application or your software. The UI, or user interface on the other hand, is the means to achieve that final goal of a good user experience.

So, what do you think is the first thing a user notices about your website the moment the page opens? The design? The pictures? The colors? Or the latest king of online presence, the content? Well, a bit of all, but only after they have had an instantaneous perception of the look and feel of the screen in front of them.

Research shows that these two, coupled with the ease of usability decides in the first 0.65 seconds whether the user will stay and read on, or press that little cross on your tab’s corner.

Look at the biggest brands in the world. Apple, Disney, Starbucks– are legendarily famed to be the brands that prioritise user experience more than anything else. The most important factor that any business today exists for is, in the end, to attract new business.

But if you fail to give to your customers that extra something from your competitors, it is hardly going to make any difference to them how good your work quality is, or how experienced your designers are or how many awards your agency got. And that is not all. A bad design will not only stop the inflow of new business, but in fact, result in the negative flow! So much for your new ‘cool’ website.

Changing times: From Designer to Superdesigner

Welcome to the first article in our Changing Times series wherein we will discuss all the transformative developments that have taken place or are taking place in web application, mobile apps, UI/UX, web design, product development, corporate branding, internet marketing & IT consulting; in short, all the fields that we provide service in.

We sincerely hope that this initiative will help you keep up with the latest advancements as creators, clients or even users of these technologies. PIeces on other topics, will of course, keep coming too. Happy Reading!

Sit back and imagine what do you associate with the word ‘Design’? Most of you will probably imagine a runway, flowing fabrics on stick thin models or exquisite interiors, or an art magazine you swore by in college and still do. Nothing wrong with that, really! I am not leading you into a tricky answer to a trick question.

Design, etymologically in itself means to make something ‘stand out’. And the term has worked just fine for English-speaking populace for six centuries; until one day, a new breed of humans rose from the shadows and spun the word around to include concepts like ease of use, simplicity of access and fluidity of information. This new race of humans came to be called, The Designers.

Five years into the past from now, a designer was anyone who knew the main PhotoShop tools or the barest basics of CorelDraw. Illustrator and Pagemaker were the biggest cherry on the cake you can ever imagine, and voila! Cherry-topped designer! Well, things aren’t the same anymore. They never do remain the same. Change is the only constant, said a crappy book once.

Now with a few basic design softwares in your Mac and a few designs in your portfolio, you could call yourself a web Designer. But to master the vocation, to become a Superdesigner, or even be employable, a designer has got to have a functioning knowledge of coding too. HTML, HTML5, CSS3, jQuery are the basic languages that you need for almost very website nowadays. jQuery is in fact, inevitable by the virtue of its versatility and extensive use.

Ever since the static, cut-pasted websites became a thing of the past, these languages have been helping designers give motion, depth and dynamism to the whole website. Menus that open upon hovering, hover keys, pictures that flip and changing banners are all examples of using movement in website designs. A collection of all these when used together can lead to beautiful designs that are not only minimal, but equally expressive and unique, like in this website.

In a nutshell, it needs to be understood that making pages look beautiful is no more the sole purpose of designing, but just a part of it. Nobody wants a shiny, pretty piece of shmuck that does very little or nothing to sell a product. Ultimately what you design needs to be functional, practical and upkeeping with the expectations that a certain product or brand evokes in a user. A great artist once said, “A good design is the one that is almost invisible.” Think about that till we meet next, if you want to be a Superdesigner of course.
