In this blog post, we'll discuss the main differences between UI and UX, and how they affect your website.
Let's start by defining what User Interface (UI) is. The term User Interface, or UI, refers to the visual elements of a website that users interact with. This includes buttons, menus, links, images, colors, and typography. They should all collaborate to generate a better user experience.
UX refers to the overall experience that a user has when they visit your website. It's more than just how visually appealing it is and touches on other factors such as ease of use and functionality.
If you would like to study UI in-depth, some of the most important subjects are layout, typography, color theory, and interaction design amongst other subjects. On the other hand, some of the most important subjects in UX are user research, usability, content strategy, information architecture and if you'd like to go really deep you'll be looking at a few subjects in psychology and business.

Quite simply a website that doesn't take into account what a user wants, how they think, and how they are attracted will never sell and you can guess that users are persuaded via visual strategy.
