Initially when we hear the word ‘design’, graphic design is the second word that comes to our minds. As initially graphic designer was the one who held the monopoly for a long span of time but now it has got competitors in the market that holds the importance of their own. A normal person from outside the designing industry may get confused among the graphic UI/UX design or designer; let’s try to understand the difference.
1. Graphic design: Graphic designing means the virtual designing of the things that decide how things would look or represented. A graphic designer is a person that chooses the framework, color, fonts, backgrounds and all the things that are represented graphically. For digital as well as physical work that is either uploaded on the internet or printed on books, magazines, newspapers, etc.
2. UX/UI (User Experience Design)/(User Interface Design): Both sounds same still are quite different. They belong to the same platform but play different roles in their distinguished fields. UX focuses on analytical and technical fields whereas UI is more related to graphical designing. UX design focuses on the physical and logical structures that are tangible to us. It works in two different dimensions research and analysis. First, the UX designer indulges in the research of the product for the better understanding of the user while in analysis, after launching the product its validation procedure is executed for analyzing the performance and output of the product. On the other hand UI design is the complex and delicate version of the designing, it focuses on the interactive parts of graphic designs such as styles of buttons, texts, drop down menus, animations, creative representations, etc.
