Do you need to be a graphic designer to be a UX designer?
Similarly one may ask, can a graphic designer be a UX designer?
However, there is a difference in this phase between graphic designers and UX designers. While graphic designers try to create a visually pleasing pixel-perfect design, UX designers try to create the best possible experience—which includes graphic design, information architecture, interaction design, and more.
Subsequently, question is, what is the difference between a graphic designer and a UX designer? Another important difference between graphic design and UX design is design process. While for a graphic designer the design process finishes once the product is launched; for a UX designer the product launch is just a step in design process. A UX design should be continually tested and adjusted based on user feedback.
