    What is UI and UX?

    • UX stands for User Experience: UX designers are responsible for a user's overall experience as they interact with every aspect of a product or service, such as an app or multi-step form.

    • UI stands for User Interaction: UI designers are responsible for determining the visual elements (e.g. menus, buttons, icons, etc.) that a person uses to interact with a product or service.

    • The average UX and UI designer salary in the US is between $70k and $107k according to Salary.com.
