Checked on tremendous UI design questions and answers, also with my own experiences, I collected these 20 questions that were frequently asked. Hope this can help you to prepare your UI interview.
1. What’s your understanding of UI design? (I was asked)
This question was highly asked in the interview process, I used to recite the definition of UI design and user interface design principles without missing a single word. However, they seem all failed. For me with no experience in UI design, they refused me for I even didn’t really know what UI design is about.

This development makes user experience play a more importance role in web design.
From the perspective of designers, therefore, a clear sep…
