UI Design and Web Design are important areas in the software industry. A User Interface designer creates and develops programs that a user will interact with when using a computer or machine to complete a task. The user interface can be in the form of bottoms, programs and graphical user interfaces, and other user interfaces that enable users to control a machine effectively. A web designer, on the other hand, helps to create and develop websites and web pages.

A web designer should be able to create simple web pages by using HTML and other simple markup languages. It is expedient for a web designer and a UI designer to be fully grounded in knowing more about how programs are developed so as to meet the varying needs of the users. For instance, a web designer should be able to have a broad knowledge of different markup languages, while a UI designer needs to know more about programming languages.

UI designers and web designers are not the same. A web designer is a person that designs content for the web. In some cases, a web designer is a graphic designer that works to build good looking apps or websites. A UI designer, on the other hand, is an individual that designs the entire screen which a user move and create the visual elements.

The user interface is created based on some functional requirement. A UI designer works with color, illustration, typography, visual design, photography, icons, and graphics. UI elements include icons, sliders, button, and scrollbars. Hope you find this information helpful.

UI is an older Version or much more practiced Field, the Question that arises of what is User Interface. We cannot answer, Due to variety of Misinterpretations.

A UI designer creates the interface to a program while a web designer designs the layout and links on a web page or site.

A UI designer and a web designer need to learn different skill sets in order to address the needs of their roles. A UI designer needs to know the programming language or languages that are being used to develop the program.
A web designer may have basic knowledge of information architecture (IA), HTML and JavaScript coding, but most designers must partner with a web developer for writing code fit for production

Web Design, UX Design, and UI Design are not necessarily mutually exclusive and in fact, many website experiences feature elements of all three. The web designer is also focused on the client's brand from both a visual and messaging perspective.

A UI designer and web designer need to learn different skills to address the needs of their roles. A UI designer needs to understand the programming language or languages which are being utilized to develop the program. A web designer needs to learn a wide range of competencies to create an operational web site. A web designer needs to learn HTML to be able to create straightforward pages. However, this kind of site is inadequate.

To be able to design complex pages, you would need to include a style sheet language like CSS, a database technology for implanting media such as Flash or Silverlight. A web designer deals with the project in its entirety with no restriction on which part can be worked. A UI designer is restricted to designing the interface. A UI designer focuses on single qualities.

The web designer is in charge of the overall design of the website. This means that the design that you see when you look at the website is the work of a web designer. The UI Designer will be focused on creating the design of the user interfaces of the different applications that are available.

The user interface is very important for a lot of app users because if they find the user interface hard to understand, they will not use the app anymore. The web design will just focus on how attractive the website is which is also important. There are some people who may even become inspired by a website’s design because it looks so clean.

Web design is normally done by web designers to make sure that the website’s design will fit well with the design of the website overall. The UI design will be in charge of the design of the user interface which is also very important because this is what people will look at and consider when they are checking out different applications.

Have you ever heard people say that they have uninstalled certain apps or they do not visit certain websites anymore because they do not like the design? This is why the designers of UI and websites are very particular about what they make. The happier people are with the UI design or the website, the more hits there will be.
