UI & UX Design Defined

As the tech industry continues to grow, so does the need for talented designers to create interfaces that will allow for a great user experience. This could include anything from designing an app, to a website, to a digital game and  more. These two job titles can get combined together and sometimes confused for the same thing. But they are different and there is a need for both.
