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.
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
