Introduction to UI/UX Design | Tools and Responsibility of Designer
Today’s world, we people are developing lots of projects and not products. As Engineering students we should work as a team and we should have a UI/UX person at our team to develop a product.
In this article, I will define the role and responsibility of UI/UX designers. I’m also listing the tools used by the UI/UX designer.
What is UI/UX?
UI/UX means User Interface and User Experience. This is a field where we design Customer and business-friendly products as customers are happy and clients earn a profit.
Many people have a wrong understanding of UI/UX. They think the role of UI/UX designer is designing the app or webpage using tools like XD and Photoshop or building the prototypes or sketches and handing over it to the Developer. They think it’s only related to Typography and Visual Design.
This doesn’t depict the entire process. It may be the final or prefinal step.
Role and Responsibility of UI/UX Designers
UI/UX team interacts with the client and gets to know about the problem they are facing or the product they want to develop.
Then they recheck it with the customers whether it is the actual problem they are facing. Sometimes our clients have misunderstood their customer’s/user’s problems.
UI/UX team conducts user research which is one of the main work of this team. From this, they design the blueprint of the product. They test it again.
They are the people who craft everything that the user sees or uses on a website or app.
They use this simple statement to make decisions…
The user is __________, Who wants to do _________.
The user is a student who wants to study online at low cost.

List of Tools for UI/UX Designer
Here are some of the tools used by the UI/UX Designer.
- Pen and Paper
- Adobe XD
- HTML and CSS
- And much more…
If you want to become UI/UX designer, check the Adobe XD tutorial. This is one of the very useful and popular designing tools.
UI/UX designing is the only domain that helps companies to make better design decisions and increase their revenue.
Just to give an example, Amazon added: “whether this review was helpful?” on their shopping website. This helps them to increase their sales by 5 Million Dollars.
This idea is brought by a UI/UX person and not a developer.
This is the process by which we can accomplish customers’ and Stakeholders’ goals and make both of them happy.
Looking at the responsibility of UI/UX designers, salary is competitive in the IT industry. Sometimes, the salary of UI/UX person is higher than the Full-stack Developer.
