Most of us know UX isn’t the same as UI design, but what then is UX actually used for?
UI designers build great looking sites, interfaces that are one of the key components of the whole experience. The job of a UX designer is to assist the UI and business strategy to achieve their goals.
UX isn’t limited to the screen, great experiences with products happen beyond this in gaps between channels, devices and business silo’s. They happen when companies actually sit back and pay attention to their interactions with customers.
