UI/UX basically means User Interface and User Experience.
You will ask designers about the difference between these two and they will start speaking big, big English😒, but at the very least sha, UI is more concerned with aesthetics, UX is concerned with functionality.
A UI designer uses images, colours, visual design elements, fonts to aid people’s attraction/interaction to a product, website or app. That’s when people say stuff like
“This site is such a cutie.”
UX design on the other cares more about functionality. Where buttons are placed, their size, how easy it is for users to navigate a website, app or use a product, amongst other things.
While UI might be more streamlined to tech, UX is actually a pretty broad phenomenon that goes into regular everyday things.
Do you know how ice cream bowls were designed to only contain ice cream, but Nigerian mummies always use it to store egusi? Na UX be that.
Same with women’s clothes. Ashewo gowns are lovely in pictures but just wear it and you’ll discover that you can’t really walk well because Jerusalem is a city on a hill for the entire world to see💀💀
Ashewo shorts are wonderful stuff, skin highlighting and leg displaying, but wear them on the streets of Nigeria and watch mosquitoes finish your life.🌚
Last but not least, owanbe gowns that our mommies own. Have you ever had to iron those problematic things? Exactly.
I think you get the picture now? Let’s move on.
