Who is a UI Designer, and what does a UI Designer do?
A UI Designer is a professional who successfully creates great user experiences for digital customers. They know their users and work alongside them – through research and continuous usability testing – to create experiences that give the desired result.
A UI Designer is the figure in charge of everything concerning the visual and interactive part of digital web products, such as apps, smartwatches and digital TVs. All design and interfaces that the user interacts with are there thanks to the UI designer and these moments are crucial as they often represent the very first impact with any brand. The UI Designer guides the user inside interfaces in products, showing them clearly and precisely where they can find what they are looking for exclusively through it.
