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 southernmost county in the Yorkshire and the Humber region, this area was the original industrial powerhouse of northern England. What wool was to West Yorkshire, steel was to South Yorkshire and as confluence of natural resources: coal, iron ore and water, it became the nucleus of the British iron and steel industries, from the 18th to the 20th centuries. Sheffield’s and Rotherham's furnaces and the coal pits of Barnsley and Doncaster may be long out of working order but the Victorian reminders remain; some the old steelworks and pit heads have been converted into museums and exhibition venues. The grand civic buildings that feature at the centre of Sheffield's city are testament to the ambitions of its 19th-century populace.
