Strictly speaking, the UI designer is in charge of creating a functional product interface. Indeed, today, the elaboration of any multimedia support must be as intuitive as possible, so that the user surfs with ease. Web design is a two-step process: The UX designer updates the needs and motivations of users by taking an interest in the behavior of Internet users. The UI integrator translates them into visually appealing graphic and textual elements. In this way, he highlights the essential components. He balances them in order to obtain a harmonious graphic design, while meeting the specifications initially conceived. User experience and interface design are two complementary and inseparable aspects of web design. The interface designer models the data from user research. He therefore excels in the control of interface ergonomics.
In his toolbox, he has a variety of software that allows him to put his ideas into practice as well as to share them with the front-end developer or the UX creator, for example. He also juggles with a multitude of graphic creation programs, photomontages or illustrations.
Obviously, this profession requires a considerable web and marketing culture. It requires creativity and undeniable graphic skills, but also a certain taste for innovation. It is for this reason that the UI designer sometimes occupies the position of art director. It is also necessary to know how to script interface prototypes and, consequently, to gain knowledge in web development. In addition to this technical know-how, this web designer must have flawless public speaking skills, as he or she works above all in a team.
