Competitive skills that UI designers should have

1. Detailed research

As a designer, you need to be a keen searcher. Before developing a product you need to do the research from various angles to see the suitability of your product at various levels. As UI and UX work side by side so you need to create an interface user friendly to enhance the interaction of your website with your potential users. Without a good interface, you can’t have the response that you want from your website, app, or digital product. So, you need to do thorough research considering three major factors. First is your potential users, secondly, the design should be according to the user’s needs, and last but most important you need to gather as much data as possible to create an interactive and informative design.

2. Wireframing and prototyping

Wireframing___it is the process of creating an overview of a product to establish its structure and flow of the possible design.

Prototyping___ it is the process of creating ideas, experiments, and concepts for a digital product. A prototype is the raw version of the digital product.

App prototyping is an essential skill that you should learn to have a better understanding of the functionality and mechanism of your product creation before its creation by the developers.

3. Mastering new tools
