UXis notUI!Nicolas DEMANGEUX DesignerThomson-Reuters Financial ServicesNovember, 23rd 2011UI
X can be seen as a crossed I. That REALLY means UI is NOT UX. The letters themselves are talking to you!2SoSo Lets get more in details but not that much. This presentation only purpose is to make you finally stop confusing/mix up the two concepts. It wont explain you what UX is or what UI is. Just show you that they are not the same.3User InterfaceUIUser ExperienceUXUI stands for User Interface.UX stands for User Experience.
Interface on the first hand, Experience on the second hand. Two different words. So why mixing them up! They are different.4what people useto interactwith the productUIhow they feelwhile they do.UXThe User Interface is what people use to interact with product where as the User Experience is how they feel while they do.If you remember this then this whole presentation is a success and becomes useless.5what people useto interactwith the productUIhow they feelwhile they do.UXTECHNICALEMOTIONALSo anytime someone is talking about technology, component implementation, platform etc. just scream at him if he introduces UX in the same sentence.UI is technical whereas UX is emotional.
From the beginning of this presentation, Im speaking as if all of this is obvious and that you are dumb.Of course not!
There is the reason why people confuse those two terms.6
RelationshipPeople tend to mix UI and UX up because on the first hand they simply do not know what lies under the User Experience term and the other hand because there is an actual relationship between the two of them.7
UIUXRelationshipHere is a simple (YES it is simplified) schema of the User Experience Design. There is lots of things. Of complex things. Of things that have relationships between them.Amongst them you have8
UIUXUIRelationship User Interface Design. Yes, here in the blue part. In the UX world, UI can be seen as the intersection of visual and interaction design. (Simplified I said!)
And as the User Interface is the most tangible thing in here, it is the main thing people refer to when talking about.
So here, you just need to remember, one more thing: UI is a small part of UX.9So?Now that you know that UI is not UX and vice versa, when you will see this kind of things10Training titleBuilding great user experiences with Silverlight 4.Job descriptionMastering HTML5, CSS3 and Jquery to implement stunning User Experience...

There is still a thing to clarify.13UXUIDesignerResponsibility ofCard sortingRadio ButtonBehaviorRuby on RailsDeveloperUX and UI do not exclude each other. They are complementary. You need both a UX designer AND a UI Developer to build a good product.So when comes the question of responsibility, sometimes they are both responsible.You may find a UI Developers that knows user-centric concepts and lots of UX aspect.But those are two full-time complex jobs.
So, last lesson: UX Designers and UI Developers are complementary.
----------------UX DesignerOne whodesignsthe user experience for applications afterdoing user and workflow analysis, producing user-centered design artifacts such as personas, site maps, taxonomies, and wireframes. A UX Designer may also conduct usability testing on prototypes or finished products to assess the quality of a user experience.UI DeveloperOne whobuildsuser interfaces that support the exchange of information between an applications users and its back-end processes and databases. This could be either a fully dedicated role on a development team or a hat a developer who is also responsible for coding the back-end processes might wear. A UI Developers output is functional, testable, shippable code that lets users accomplish their goals when using an application. The UI Developer is also responsible for documentation that allows others to maintain their code.14To sum upTo sum up!15UX is not UIUI is a small part of UXUX Designers and UI Developersare complementaryThank youUI vs UX
