I’m a designer, have been for many years in the industry and often wonder myself which role I play on my teams — UI or UX — most of the time a combination of the two. At times the intersection of UX/UI is not clear and on a small team this intersection is easily shared. On my teams a UI designer is involved from the beginning of a project just like the UX designer. I have read many articles that try and describe these two functions and I still don’t fully understand which part of my design tasks fall under which. I’m not sure we can break down the functions to specific tasks, since in the industry they are all muddled and no matter which you sign up for to work, you’ll end up working parts of both without really knowing.
