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.
The international reputation of this city is primarily as the home of the
University of Oxford, the oldest university in the English-speaking world. Utterly
steeped in history and yet it maintains the atmosphere of a modern town, thanks
to its huge student population. The elegant colleges are featured alongside courtyards
and cobbled lanes, studded by occasional shops, eateries and public houses.
\r\nWith the oldest colleges dating back over 750 years, the rich history, tradition and lively academic life of the city is punctured by the equally thrilling world outside the university walls; Oxford has an extensive industrial past and the working populace outnumber the academic elite. Its industries include motor manufacturing, education, publishing and many famed information technology and science-based businesses.
\r\nSector wise, Oxford has a strong hub of technology and healthcare businesses complimented by a plethora of marketing and digital agencies.
