Design Trends of 2018

UX/UI Unicorns

A recent survey found that 66% of technical positions for UX designers require UI skills. Of course, for those within the industry, this only serves to perpetuate what we call the UI/UX unicorn myth. Despite much explanation and countless attempts to unblur the lines between UI and UX, organizations just don’t seem to listen. While in fact it's two unique positions. At the same time, few UX designers feel comfortable taking on the coveted UX/UI role, often times what is left out is the research, which effects the UI and the user.

Rising to the Challenge

By the mid-2000s, successful companies had already invested heavily in design thinking. Then the design-led Apple introduced the iPhone and its apps, quickly becoming the most valuable brand in the world. You know the story after that. More brands started investing in UX. Those who didn’t saw their value drop precipitously.

And just like that, something that seemed like a luxury became a necessity in just a few short years. Because 86% of users say they’ll stop using an app if it’s difficult to use, and the bar for usability only continues to get higher. credit

The Founder of Pixel Creative Services, LLC, has over 25 year of experience in the design industry.
She has extensive experience in problem solving using research and design.


Over the past 10 years, there has been a culture shift for user experience within the industry.
Yet, we always considered user experience as part of good design.

Now the government sector is recognizing the need for user experience design.

The titles of a designer keeps evolving from UX, UI, UX/UI and now Usability Engineering.

But, user-centered design principles remain the same. Capturing the user's Day-in-the-Life help design a better product.   

We find the balance between design and functionality.
