Event Information

Ever tried to explain the difference between UX and UI without using a picture of a ketchup bottle? Also, with the rise of the "before and after UX" posts without context on LinkedIn and their virality, it's important for us to know the key differences between UI and UX!

In this panel discussion, Joey and Nickolas will be talking about ways you can educate your friends & families about the differences between UI and UX. You may also submit your questions for our panelists using Luma!
