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.
Salary wise outside of London the role generally pays between £30,000 to £45,000 depending on regional variance and level of experience.
Northampton is the county town of Northamptonshire in the East Midlands and lies on the River Nene. Archaeological evidence in the area dates back to the Bronze Age, Roman and Anglo-Saxon periods. During the Middle Ages, the town saw the establishment of Northampton Castle, an occasional used royal residence that regularly hosted the Parliament of England. Rebuilt after the devastating Great Fire of Northampton in 1675, Northamptonshire's county town was one of the prettiest in the Midlands before WWII bombers and then post-war urban planners wreaked architectural havoc. However, the heart of the town retains some grand buildings that emphasise its significant role in England’s Wars of the Roses and the English Civil War. After the creation of the Grand Union Canal and the railway in the 19th century, Northampton became internationally famous for manufacturing fine quality leather footwear. Unsuccessfully applying for unitary status in 1996 and city status later in 2000, the town continues to expand, undergoing large-scale urban renewal.
