Visual Interaction Designers


Visual interaction designers are software developers who design the structure and behavior of interactive systems. They focus on the interactions and communication between users and products (typically apps and Web sites) and develop the look (e.g., typography, color palette), sound, and motion of a product. Adobe says that “it’s nearly impossible to create good interaction design in isolation of user experience. Interaction design is a spoke in the umbrella of user experience (UX design).” UX design and interaction design include fields such as visual design, human-computer interaction, human factors, sound design, industrial design, and information architecture. Visual interaction designers are also known as interaction designers.
