User Interface Designers (UI Designer) differ from UX Designers in that they are responsible for taking the UX outputs (wireframes etc.) and concentrate on how best to layout the design for the platform/site.
They are in charge of designing each screen or page a user interacts with and ensuring that this delivers the best possible experience. Just like graphic designers, UI Designers have a real understanding of layout and typography albeit with a specialisation in digital channels / platforms.
Given the popularity of mobile devices, both UX and UI candidates must have experience in creating effective user experience and journeys across all desktop, mobile and tablet devices – responsive, cross-browser design experience is therefore essential. The boundary between UI and UX designers is fairly blurred and it is not uncommon for companies to opt to combine these roles.

Buckinghamshire is a sprawling county stretching from the northern outskirts of London, up to the edge of the Midlands. Amazingly a third of the county is designated as green belt land, making Buckinghamshire an outstanding area of natural beauty and ranking as one of the UK’s top rural areas to live.
Key towns in Buckinghamshire include Aylesbury, the county town of Buckinghamshire, High Wycombe, the biggest town in the county and Amersham.
With superb travel links by both road and rail, cities such as London, Birmingham, Oxford and Milton Keynes are all within easy access. This obviously makes the county an extremely popular place to live for commuters, which has pushed up house prices in recent years. Interestingly Buckinghamshire also has the highest quality of life, life expectancy and the best education results in the UK.
Buckinghamshire has a very successful modern economy, ranking as the entrepreneurial heart of Britain, being home to the most successful business start ups. This, coupled with the fact that the county ranks highly for growth in all industry sectors, means that Buckinghamshire has the 2nd fastest growing economy in the UK.
Away from work, the county is home to the stunning Chiltern Hills, which is hugely popular with walkers, runners and cyclists.
