UX vs UI Designer These two terms are often used together and not all understand; often confused in the industry, the two profiles are different from each other and the skills and knowledge required is also different. In contemporary times where internet is the ultimate power to knowledge and website are its resources; having a great website that grabs the user’s attention and keep him hooked is more important than ever and that is what both UI (User Interface) and UX (User Experience) designer does. It’s a common misconception at workplace and even in job listings or job requirements is the combination or interchange of the terms. Usually, the expectation is that an interface designer should understand and have knowledge of user experience because their work is similar to that of user interface designer. In simple terms, user interface is not user experience. The terms are used together so often that they are considered as one. And get me wrong, they are certainly related areas, and in fact many designers are knowledgeable and competent in both. But there is a difference. UX Designer The main responsibility of the UX designer is to see how the product feels, check if the product follows a logical path, understand if there are any hindrances in the process and remove it. Many people see designing to create something but designing is more about solving problems, and that is that UX designer do. The work includes usability and also add a more emotional dimension:...

Styling Buttons with CSS Everyone needs buttons on their site. Buttons to submit a form, buttons to redirect to another page, buttons to open up widgets. Anyways you get the point. The challenge is that by default HTML buttons look very dull. That is why you must style your buttons using CSS to make them more appealing to your visitors. CSS button styling is not that complicated, but it could be challenging if your CSS knowledge is limited. Therefore, I’ve decided put together this simple tutorial to help you understand CSS Button Style. I will attempt to style a button steps by steps and then I will give you a bounce of different buttons styles from which you can pick. CSS Button Style Breakdown There are many ways you can get a button: <button>Click me!</button> <input type="submit">Click me!</button> <a href="#">Click me!</a> For this example I will be sticking with the button tag. This is good because you can use it to submit a form without having to rely on javascript, or you can also use it with javascript an do as you which by preventing default. Nevertheless, I will make classes for CSS Button Styles instead of directly affecting the button tag. The reason for this is that if you which to use something else than button, like a tag or input tag you can, all you have to do is assign the class to them, like this: <a href="#" class="custom-button-style">Click Me!</a> So with no further delay let’s get...

Table Style CSS Tables are an important component of every website. By default they provide an excellent way of representing tabular data, but lack the looks. If you want to make your tables come alive with user friendly designs you are going to need some CSS. Cascade Style Sheet or CSS can improve the looks of any table by a lot. Without any styles, tables are very dull. Add a little bit of CSS an you have an attractive display of tabular data that would make it easier to read and understand for your visitors. Plain HTML table without CSS vs. Table with CSS without styles with styles Take a look at the first table on the left. As you can see it does not look very appealing. Sure you can see all the content perfectly and it might even make sense, but I think we can agree that the looks could be improved to make it more appealing and capture visitors attention. In contrast, look at the table right under, it has some simple styling and it looks much more appealing to the eye. No doubt that a little CSS can make a big different when it comes to tables. Styling a table with css is a must. Too much styling does not help either Unfortunately, many people are confused when it comes to styling their tables. As a result, the styles applied are not very effective and instead of being appealing sometimes can be repealing. That is...
