A user interface (UI) designer takes wireframes and designs all of the interactive elements that are needed to navigate through the experience with as little friction as possible. This includes everything from buttons, dropdown menus, and site navigation to content layout and typography, plus elements like photography and video. A UI designer is a creative individual who focuses on the functionality and overall visual elements that enhance the customer’s ability to navigate within a digital product and achieve the action they’re there to do.

- “Trending” – Styles change all the time, so you need to look for a designer in step with the latest developments. If someone tries pitching a skeuomorphic design in 2015, keep looking.
- Following instructions – While it’s not a good idea to leave UI designers with no artistic freedom at all, when boundaries are set, they must be respected. They’re there for a good reason.
