Stepping into UI/UX

Few years back, the UI/UX term/role was not that distinct. The web developers had to do all the work from designing to hosting of the website. Along with the development and evolution of web technologies, new roles were introduced like UI/UX designers. So, what really is UI/UX design? UX design refers to user experience design on the other hand UI refers to user interface design. UX design deals with providing the best experience to the clients who are viewing the websites and UI design deals with the overall designing of the website (i.e. How the product is exposed to the clients?).

UI/UX design is one of the booming professions in the present context. So, in order to help the students to step into the designing field and to guide them to get indulged in the industry, Prime IT Club organized a webinar “Stepping into UI/UX” on september 20, 2020. For this webinar, we invited Mr. Anjan Shrestha (co-founder and vice president of product innovation at Young Innovations Pvt.Ltd ) as the speaker since he is a professional designer and he has more than a decade of experience in UI/UX designing with involvement in more than 100 projects.

Time: 1:30 pm – 3:30 pm

Venue: Zoom meeting & live streamed in Prime IT Club’s Facebook Page

Before starting the presentation, Mr. Shrestha listed out all the topics going to be discussed in the webinar like:

  • Introduction to UI/UX design.
  • Pointing out the UI/UX misconceptions.
  • Explanation of design process and resources required for designing.
  • Importance of UI/UX design for a product.

After that he briefly introduced himself and shared his experiences being a designer. During the presentation, Mr. Shrestha was explaining each topic one by one vividly and at the same time he was answering all the queries that were related to the topic that he was discussing. Rest of the queries were then answered in a Q/A session. The session went very well with around 50 students participating in the webinar. Furthermore, the speaker made the webinar very interactive by asking questions and interacting with the participants  throughout the discussion.
