What’s the difference between UX and UI?


One night my daughter asked, “What’s the difference between UX and UI?”
I decided to sketch her a picture to explain. It’s no Picasso, but it seemed to get the idea across.

I tweeted a picture of it, and there was quite a response, I was pretty shocked! It was tweeted, RTd, favorited, liked and posted several thousand times! It was even translated into other languages!

After receiving a bunch of requests, it’s now been made available for purchase as an art print, t-shirt, mug, etc. here: http://society6.com/userexperiencerocks/UXUI-Bike-Sketch-User-Experience-Rocks

Folks have been asking if they can use it in presentations and articles, feel free to use it as an example if you’d like! Just list my name, Twitter handle, and web address with it (Jennifer Aldrich @jma245 http://userexperiencerocks.com) when you use it. If you want to include it in a print publication, just reach out to me and we can discuss it!

And if you have time, shoot me a tweet or comment on this post to let me know how you’re using it! I’d love to connect!

Thank you so much for all of the love and support folks! I ❤ our UX and design communities!!! 🙂

Have an outstanding day!
