Hire on Crew

Over the past 4 years, millions of people have used websites and apps created by a Crew freelance product designer or studio. They’ve helped startups and businesses like Zipbooks, Fitlist and DesignLab create delightful experiences for their users. When we built Moodboard, we even tapped on our product designers to help build the app. Here’s what Tim Chaves, founder of the accounting platform Zipbooks had to say about his experience.

“Because we don’t necessarily have the budget to hire a full-time design team, it’s amazing to have someone who’s actually committed for the duration of the project and cares about its success.” -Tim Chaves, Zipbooks

Product design is really a blend of two different types of design: user experience (UX) and user interaction (UI). Those are the two elements that help users interact with your product. Here are the main differences between UX and UI:

  • A UX designer specializes in understanding how a product interface feels for the people who use it.
  • A UI designer focuses on creating interfaces, designing the visual elements of the product.

Imagine you’re making a form for your app or website, with input fields and a button. A UI designer would create the entry fields and button, while a UX designer would create a layout to ensure the form can be completed with minimal friction. The UX designer could use hover states so a button feels more physical, or add visual cues to communicate that the information has been entered correctly.


The difference between UI and UX design

While UI designers create elements that a user will actually interact with, UX designers focus on how those elements work together to create a great experience.

If that sounds like splitting hairs, we get it. The difference between UI and UX design can be difficult, so here are a couple visual analogies to break down it down.

Though UI and UX design are different, many of our freelance product designers equally talented in both.
