how healthy is the internet?

The Internet — you might have heard of it — is what keeps the world connected, what keeps us informed, what is an integral part of our lives and for many, livelihoods. Imagine life without the Internet — some of us at Web Designer are old enough to remember what it was like! The Internet has undoubtedly made life easier for all of us in many ways.

ui vs ux: why the difference matters

“It’s important to understand the difference between UX and UI when you’re looking to join a company in a new role, or if you’re looking to add to your team” If you spend time in any UX forum or group, I’ll lay a hefty bet that the topic of UX vs UI crops up regularly. It’s a constant debate with people trying to lay claim to one part or the other. However, the reality is, they’re intertwined, and you can’t have one without the other.
