There are four distinct phases of UI design:
1. User ResearchThis is the phase where designers collect data about users through surveys, interviews, and other methods in order to better understand their needs and wants.
2. User Interface DesignIn this phase, designers create the actual interface elements such as buttons, icons, and layouts.
3. User TestingAfter the interface is complete, it’s important to test it with actual users to ensure that it’s easy to use and understand.
4. MaintenanceOnce the UI is launched, designers need to monitor its performance and make changes as needed over time.
