In few words…What is it UX and UI Design?

Well…i should i begin? When i was a student in visual, i don’t remember the concept of UX and UI design. Maybe i had my head in the clouds, but sincerely this subjet was never be talked with depht. When i started to heard about that i became curious and make my own search to learn a little more about this area.

After some search, i realize that in my years as webdesigner,  I was already doing that job, this kind of analysis, but in a way more intuitive and base at common sense.

The wikipedia definition:

“User experience design (UXD or UED) is the process of enhancing user satisfaction by improving the usability, accessibility, and pleasure provided in the interaction between the user and the product.”

In other words, User Experience is how the user feels when is using and interating with a system. It could be a app of a mobile device, a website, a desktop app or a software. Is the interation human-computer (HCI).

User Interface Design or UI Design,   it’s the way how the person interacts with and controls a device , software or application. This control can be done by buttons , menus and any element that provides an interaction between the device and the user.
A good UI design anticipates the user’s needs and ensures that the interface contains elements of easy access and use. It will provide what is called a user-friendly experience , that is, an experience that is friendly and does not cause the user frustration.
