We need visual guidance as our world becomes more technical and complex. Long gone are the days when computer interfaces were text based. Today, interaction must be self
explanatory and uncluttered. the old adage, a picture speaks a thousand words is especially true. Every computer generation ushers in new terminology. We used to call it GUI (graphical user interface), but, with the
advent of touch devices (mobile/tablets/displays) we added a second interactive component (UX).
We speak GUI and UI/UX fluently.
