Very often people use UI Design in all contexts of website design and a very few people know that there is something more which can be given further reference to the UI Design.

Or to make you understand I must explain it to you in a different way. Most of you must have read or hear UI and UX. The UI stands for User Interface and UX stands for "User eXperience"

There are many complications and misconceptions when it comes to the differences between UI and UX design, and they cause the design community to go into quite a stir whenever they are brought up.

UI is the saddle (A seat for the rider of a horse or camel), the stirrups (Support consisting of metal loops into which rider's feet go), and the reigns. A UI designer is responsible for everything that a user will see on the interface. This includes everything from (but not limited to) input controls such as buttons, navigational components such as sliders, and informational components such as message boxes.

UX is the feeling you get being able to ride the horse, and rope your cattle.The UX designer is responsible for the emotion of the user. They are responsible for how they feel when interacting with the interface or product. UX is a much broader term that encompasses the entire process from concept to completion.

To give you an easier understanding, I would suggest you to go and read a very interesting post here.

UX designers generally start by conducting user research and interviews. The goal with this is to understand exactly what the users’ needs are. In most cases, the next step is to create a set of personas of each possible user and their needs. Once these first two steps have been completed, the UX designer will have the information needed to create the backbone of the product or “wireframes”. The wireframes are essentially the blueprints of what the UI designer will use to create the interface that the user interacts with. 

Clearly UI and UX design are interrelated and you need both to create simple user centered products. At the same time, one should understand the differences between them. As stated, UI design focuses on what the user can see and touch and UX design focuses on how the user feels when they interact with the product. Hopefully my brief description about the differences in UI and UX design has given you a better understanding of two!
