Why UX Designers Need to Learn UI Design

There’s often confusion between what user experience and the user interface is. They sound the same, but the UI is not the UX.

There’s often confusion between what user experience and the user interface is. They sound the same, but the UI is not the UX. The user interface is the tool and medium that shapes the user experience. When you design the UI, you have direct influence on the UX.

UX designers need to learn UI design so they can communicate their insights in accurate detail to get project stakeholders on board with their vision. Clear UI communication makes it easier for companies to create excellent experiences for their users.

A great way to learn UI design is to take Springboard’s UI/UX Design Career Track. Their UI/UX Design Career Track is a 9-month online course that allows you to learn at your own pace.
