The field of UI/UX focuses on product development and involves roles that are both creatively and technologically driven. UI (user interface) involves the usage of images, typography, colours, and other visually appealing elements to create the look and feel of a product. On the other hand, UX (user experience) deals with the technical aspects of a product, understands the users' journey, solves their problems, and works on what happens behind the screen. While hiring experts in the field, vacancies usually list UI and UX requirements under a single role and want someone to work simultaneously on both. Although there are various similarities between the two, few additional skills are needed for a UI expert to work on UX and vice-versa.
