UI and UX are fairly new practices in the website design world and are commonly misinterpreted. UI and UX are two separate entities. UI refers to user interface, whereas UX stands for user experience. UI focuses on how the design is laid out and the tools used to deliver the content, whereas UX focuses more on the overall feel of a website and takes into account how the elements are perceived by a user.
User Interface (UI)
UI is a mixture of texts, pictures, archives, video, and so forth, and buttons, labels, drop-down records, text fields, checkboxes, white spaces, visual computerization, and so on. UI also includes behavior like when we click, type or drag. It requires creativity, a ton of experimentation, and a great deal of training.
