What are the Key Responsibilities of a UI UX Designer?

Published

on

Want to find out what are your responsibilities being a UI/UX designer?  You may know or you may not but UI/UX designers at IDEO and Red Antler earn an annual fortune of $91,500. This is approximately the highest salary for a designer with minimum experience. That being said, a massive confusion for UI/UX designers occurs when it comes to writing UX designer job roles and responsibilities. And there are a plethora of potential UX design work-related roles to which you must adhere.

In this post, we’ll show you how to decode and comprehend all of the various types of UX designer obligations, as well as provide some helpful answers that will encourage UI/UX designers to relish their positions. We’ll also look at a variety of other details such as the different roles of entitled designers, so let’s get started!

What is a UI/UX design?

UI and UX design are among the most frequently misunderstood and intertwined words on the internet. And it’s understandable. They’re normally classified together as UI/UX design online, as they appear to describe the same thing. It’s often difficult to find strong definitions of the two that won’t devolve into a single terminology. Having said that, let’s take a look at the definitions:

UI design

UI design originates from “user interface and it is typically a graphical layout or visual design. It includes many keys that users click, the text on the screen, the illustrations, drop-down menus, text input areas, and all of the other items with which the users can interact. Here, every visual element, interaction, and animation the layout of the screen, turning points, interface animations, and each micro-interaction must be fully developed.

UX design

The term “UX” refers to “user experience” and how a user interacts with the app determines their experience with it. A great UX design makes the experience smooth and intuitive, whereas a bad UX design makes the experience clunky and confusing. This entails navigating the app while visualizing it as either logical or arbitrary. UX ensures that apps give people the impression that they are efficiently completing the tasks they set out to accomplish rather than viewing it as a struggle. The ease or difficulty with which the user interface elements created by the UI designers can be interacted with determines the user experience.

What is the role of a UI/UX designer?

It’s also debatable whether UI designers or UX designers create the exact wireframe rendering of interface interactions and solicit user feedback. To answer this question, you must first distinguish between the two designers in order to gain a comprehensive understanding of how users prefer to interact with their applications:

Role of a UI designer

Working on an app’s appearance is what UI designers formally do. Your job is to select color arrangements and icon patterns, as well as line widths and text formatting. The visual appearance of an application’s considering user interface is maintained by UI designers. As you may already know, Graphic designers are UI designers. Your responsibility is to ensure that the application’s interface is appealing, aesthetically appealing, and suitably customized to complement the app’s objective and individuality. That being said, you must ensure that every single visual element feels cohesive, both aesthetically and functionally.

Role of a UX designer

UX designers are also involved with the user interface of an application, which is why people are curious about the distinction between the two. However, whereas UI designers are in a better position to decide how the user interface will appear, UX designers are in place to determine how the user interface will function. As designers, you work on the interface’s composition and function, as well as the arrangements and how many of the parts, interact with one another. In short, UX designers ensure that the interface works properly.

So, how do UI and UX relate together?

Mutual coordination and interaction between UI and UX designers certainly assist to ensure that the entire user experience is excellent and organic. A UX designer determines how the user interface functions, whereas a UI designer governs how the user interface appears. This is a complex and dynamic process, and the two design teams frequently collaborate. The UI team is focused on how most of these interface elements will show up on screen while the UX team works on the rhythm of the app, how all of the icons navigate you across your tasks, as well as how the interface productively provides the data user needs. For example, during the design process, it is decided that additional buttons should be added to a specific screen. This will alter how the buttons must be organized or changed to a specific shape or size.

What are the responsibilities of UI/UX designers?

UI/UX designer responsibilities will include the following:

  • Recognizing business requirements and user feedback to create user-centered design
  • Establish user streams, schematic capture, blueprints, and mockups
  • Designing style guides, design systems, design patterns, and appealing user interfaces from requirements
  • Design and carry out user research as well as industry trends.
  • Data interpretation and empirical feedback
  • Creating user interface elements like control mechanisms, navigational elements, and instructional aspects
  • Creating unique graphic designs (e.g. images, sketches, and tables)
  • Defining and diagnosing UX issues (for example, responsiveness)
  • Construct user stories, personas, and storyboards.
  • Establish sitemaps and determine the information architecture.
  • Successfully cooperating with the product, engineering, and management teams
  • Improve user experience, incorporate customer feedback, usage metrics, and accessibility observations into the design.
  • Follow iterative and progressive usability sessions in which real users interact with scaled versions of certain functionality or visual designs are put to test determining whether the designers are on the right track.
  • Each iteration incorporates feedback
  • Make wireframes and prototypes.
  • Perform usability testing

Now, let us take a look at UI/UX designer responsibilities associated with various job descriptions according to careerfoundry.com are as follows:

UI/UX designer responsibilities as an Analyst

  • Create routines and task lists for UX design projects.
  • Work with Program Managers, Marketing, Customer Success, and Sales to develop a solid knowledge of consumer preferences
  • Establish a well-structured, real worth plan to implement solid UX design.
  • All fundamental precepts of the product design process should be documented.
  • Perform research to determine user requirements.

UI/UX designer responsibilities as a Strategist

  • Convert business and user requirements, as well as technical challenges, into estimation methods that are significant, convenient, and interactive.
  • Enable workshops to respond to critical business questions by using instructional design, functional prototypes, and increase customer engagement.
  • Mentor and assist with the project lifecycle discovery, including workshops. Interviews with users and stakeholders, analytics, audits and benchmarking
  • Use quantitative and qualitative research to generate meaningful insights that will inspire creative ideas.

UI/UX designer responsibilities as an Architect

  • Collaborate with the UX researcher to identify users’ needs and learn how they consume and navigate content (a task analysis can help with this).
  • Conduct an evaluation of the current information architecture and identify areas for improvements, such as content inventories and audits.
  • Propose and style the information architecture for the website or app; where should the information go or which factors play an important role
  • Make use cases, flow diagrams, and information hierarchies.
  • Classify and Label Information
  • Construct wireframes as well as taxonomies.

Final thoughts

Coming to the end of this feature, to create an excellent user interface/experience, both UI and UX designs are to be tremendously attractive & accurate with pre-existing user expectations.

Once UI and UX are in sync, the effects can be spectacular.

9 Scenic Locations To Visit Around The World

Published

on

Whether you are planning a solo trip or a holiday with your extended family, your vacation should be a time to relax and enjoy the beautiful scenes of a new place. If you are brainstorming ideas for your next trip, consider one of these nine scenic destinations around the world.

1. Hawaii

Pack a beach towel and sunscreen because nothing beats the view of Hawaii’s gorgeous beaches. If you are looking for something more active to do, consider a tour of the island’s waterfalls or volcanoes. Sign up for a snorkeling excursion if you prefer undersea adventures.

With so many islands and activities in this southern state, consider taking a Hawaii cruise. By taking a cruise, you get to see more sights around the islands than you would if you booked a hotel.

2. Hever Castle

Hever Castle was the home of Henry VIII’s wife Anne Boleyn when she was growing up. It is located in Kent, England. You can even stay at a bed and breakfast located on the castle grounds. Not only is the castle itself a sight to see, but the landscape surrounding it is gorgeous as well.

3. East Coast

If history is your thing, you will love taking in all the historic landmarks up and down the East Coast of North America. Before leaving, make a list of all the historic locations you want to see, such as the Liberty Bell in Philadelphia, Ford’s Theater and Lincoln Memorial in Washington D.C. and the Old North Church in Boston.

With so many places to see in different states, start south and work your way north or vice versa. In order to fully appreciate each landmark, try to book a couple of weeks for this trip to give you enough time to drive and tour each location.

4. Cliffs of Moher

One of the most popular locations in Ireland is the Cliffs of Moher. Not only is this stunning cliff home to beautiful greenery and a variety of birds, but it is located over 700 feet above the coast, making it one of the most popular places for visitors to tour.

5. Italy

Italy is also famous for breathtaking historic landmarks, such as the Colosseum, the Pantheon and a number of churches and cathedrals. It also boasts a number of beautiful wineries where you can tour the vineyards and sample the wine. Plus, nothing goes better with wine and a beautiful view than some world-famous pasta!

6. Kyoto

No matter what your definition of “beauty” is, there is something for everyone in Japan’s city of Kyoto. The city is especially beautiful when the cherry blossoms are in bloom, usually around mid-March. From perfectly trimmed gardens to shrines to colorful festivals and celebrations, there is an endless number of sites to see.

7. Angel Falls

If you really want to take in a majestic site, visit Angel Falls in Canaima National Park, Venezuela. This gorgeous waterfall is 3,212 feet tall, making it the tallest in the world.

8. Tane Mahutu

While New Zealand has many breathtaking views, one of the most unique ones is the Tane Mahutu, which translates to “King of the Forest.” This wondrous tree is said to be over 2,000 years old, 42 feet wide and 167 feet tall. The tree is located at the top of North Island; you can even camp overnight in the forest if you simply cannot leave this majestic sight.

9. Chicago

If you love the hustle and bustle of the city, you will love all the sights the city of Chicago offers. Take a boat tour on Lake Michigan to see all the architectural treasures of the city. You can also see the lake at the famous Navy Pier while enjoying the rides, food and entertainment this attraction has to offer.

If you are looking for a new scenic destination to visit, these nine locations will make your vacation worthwhile

Let’s talk about atonzo.com

Published

If you don’t know what it is, it’s a relatively new B2c online shopping app where people can advertise their products and services in few simple steps.

When I first heard about it, I thought it was just another usual online shopping App, except for me to find
out some outstanding features.

Fortunately, I managed to get access to the app and explored it over the weekend. I will say, it’s nowhere near what I expected it to be at all.

The best way I can describe the app is this: Atonzo is an app where you can basically advertise anything at all like electronics, fashion, properties, even job vacancies. And now, I can see why the platform has over 100 verified sellers in less that 6 months, since they launched it.

They took the concept of B2C shopping platforms (i.e. jij, tonaton and olx) and brought it to a whole new level. Even though there’s no Ios app Yet, as far as I know, the android app was released september 2021.

Personally, I can see it a great alternative to tonaton, jiji and olx. I’m not sure if I can say the same for other platforms. But, one thing is for sure, it seems like a great way to market your business, which’ll lead to more revenue and customers.

Now some other interesting things i found about this app is it allows you to post unlimited ads for free with little or no restrictions. the app gives you a direct integrated whats app button so that you can easily reach product owners
directly without having to save their numbers first before whatsapping them.

So far so good i can say its one of the fastest and simplest online shopping site i have used so far. After all that i made contact with the site owner,  Daniel Agblo, in my conversation with him he told me atonzo is a step ahead with combating fraudulent activities engaging in recent time online shopping cases. Apparently the site verifies sellers in an unusual way, registered sellers are made to verify their identities on a video call and some other interesting ways, he mentioned.

He continued by saying ,online marketing companies like atonzo.com play a crucial role in helping businesses boost their branding and sales online. Nowadays without some online marketing, a business is not going to be achieving its full potential because so much is done online. You reach more customers, it reaches beyond local marketing to global proportions and it helps keep you relevant in your industry when there is likely a lot of competition.

How to Mail Order Cannabis at your Doorstep today

Published

Marijuana consumption is typically believed to be harmful to health around the world. However, the fact that it provides various health benefits might take you by shock. 

This article will discuss some of the medical benefits that marijuana has to offer. For further information, check out buy weed online from HighGlowCo. Canada

A Brief History of Marijuana

To get started, let’s travel back to 2737 BC. History says that the first direct reference was discovered in China. The Chinese emperor Shen Nung’s writings were the home to this reference. Cannabis was first employed for psychoactive compounds. 

Over the course, its use traveled from China to India then to North America. It eventually ended up in Europe in 500 AD. The United States Pharmacopeia recognized weed from 1850 to 1942. It was employed for treating various medical conditions like nausea, labor pain, pain, and rheumatism. 

THC, an active element of marijuana, was synthesized in 1966 to make it more medically acceptable. Finally, the US FDA approved it in 1985. 

The Medicine Institute of the United States of America discovered the therapeutic qualities of cannabis in some medical illnesses such as chemotherapy-induced nausea and AIDS-related wasting. It was found in a 1999 project funded by the US government.

Since 1999 various types of research have been conducted to prove that smoked weed has pain-relieving properties. The first-ever state to legalize marijuana in 1996 for the medical purpose was California. Nowadays, nearly all states have some form of medical cannabis laws. 

Marijuana’s Health Benefits

You will be surprised to learn why numerous studies were performed on marijuana. Here is a list of some medical benefits provided by marijuana. 

  • Delays and Stops Cancer Cell Proliferation

Cannabidiol has been discovered to have the potential to halt cancer by switching off a gene known as Id-1. CBD was first identified in 2007 as having the ability to suppress disease from developing.

Cancer cells were treated with cannabidiol by the researchers when they had a massive concentration of Id-1. The cells had lower Id-1 activity and were less vigorous instigators as a result of the study. However, it was discovered that cannabis effectively slows tumor progression in the nervous system, breast, and lungs.

  • Alzheimer’s Disease Prevention

The primary element in marijuana, THC, helps to reduce the onset of Alzheimer’s disease. THC reduces the creation of amyloid plaques by inhibiting the enzyme that produces them. These deposits damage brain cells, possibly resulting in Alzheimer’s disease.

  • Glaucoma Treatment

Glaucoma causes the pressure inside the eyeballs to rise, harming the optic nerve, leading to visual loss. Weed can also be employed to treat the disease. Marijuana, as per the National Eye Institute, decreases intraocular pressure, which can forestall blindness.

  • Aid for Crohn’s disease

Weed may aid in the treatment of Crohn’s disease. Crohn’s disease is an inflammatory gastrointestinal illness that causes symptoms such as discomfort, vomiting, diarrhea, and weight loss. Cannabis THC appears to aid in the management of microorganisms and gastrointestinal activity in the gut.
