What is the Difference Between a UX/UI Designer and a Web Designer?

The difference between UX, UI, and Web designers is not clear for many people. Do not worry if you have an existential crisis about these three job positions. They do have significant differences, and now we will see what those are.

  • Web Designer

The Journey of a web designer starts as a graphic design and then later started designing a website. A web designer does not think of making a website user-friendly in the initial part. They tend to focus more on aesthetics, beauty, and design.

In addition to the components or elements of designing, web designers also know HTML/CSS and even Javascript. Since web designers are more focused on web designing, they are suitable for working at the front-end. And web developers work for the back-end of a website.

Web designers only work on websites, not apps. A designer who works on apps or other products can probably be a UI or UX designer.

  • UX designer

A UX designer focuses on the "User experience." A UX designer ensures that an app, website, or product will be user-friendly. The user will have a great experience using it. A UX design can be done considering the following factors

  • Brand Strategy
  • User Interviews
  • Buyers persona
  • Google analytics
  • Information Architecture
  • Wireframes
  • Prototyping and testing
  • And more

User experience depends a lot on the question of why. For example, why people are not following the link or why are they not scrolling down etc. It is necessary to learn UX to become an ideal web designer. Still, they can also design apps and other products.

  • UI designer

UI designers' primary focus is on controlling an app or a website that a user uses to navigate in the app or the site. UI designers take support from the UX designer and make an app more interactive for the user.

The primary focus of UI designers are:

  • Screen Layout
  • Design responsiveness
  • Designing necessary features
  • Make the app or website consistent for the users
