What is user experience?
UI stands for user interface and is the screen or surface of an artifact that a user sees and interacts with. UX or user experience expands out from that surface and includes factors such as the environment in which the user works, as well as who the user is, what goals they want to accomplish, what other coordinating and organizational constraints impinge on their work, etc. While advocating for the user, UX designers strategize with business to achieve their goals and team with developers to build the best solution feasible. UI should be designed to capture all of this – and more. The UX cannot be designed without including these interests in the design process – following user centric design.
