UID [ˌjuːaɪːˈdi]: stands for User Interface Design.
User Interface Design’s main goal is to understand how humans interact with the computer.
You can think of UI design like this:
User Interface Design = Visual Design + Interaction Design.
Visual design deals with the look and feel of the site, the personality if you will; the brand. Interaction design focuses on the way people interact with your site.
UX designers are the architects of macro-interactions, while UI designers are the makers of micro-interactions and attend to the details.[button url=”http://journocode.com/data-journalism-dictionary/” new_tab=”” button_style=”btn-info” button_size=”btn-default”] Back to Dictionary[/button]
