UX stands for user experience. UX design is defining a solution that (1) meets the needs of customers / users, (2) the organizational goals of an organization and (3) that is technically feasible. And always in that order.
UI is an abbreviation for user interface. UI design is about the interface between a technology and the user of that technology.
The difference between UI design and UX design is simple. It is primarily a difference in scope: UX design is much wider than UI design. But UI design can be part of UX design. UX design is about all factors that influence the user experience, such as sensory perception, the ease of use of the product or service, the purpose the user has, the confidence he / she has in a brand, the readability of the texts and images. You name it.
The term UX is often used to describe software, websites or other digital interfaces, but it may just as well be an interface of a tangible product, such as a vacuum cleaner, a watch or a car.
