Video: What Comes First- UX or UI?

Which came first the chicken or the egg? Well, it depends on how you look it. This funny video compares the chicken and egg dilemma to UX and UI. From a design standpoint, UX design (the chicken) comes before the finished UI (the egg). But from the user’s perspectives, interaction with the UI determines the overall impression of the UX. Feedback from interaction with the UI also informs future decisions about UX. It’s a perpetual cycle. This video is great for understand UX and UI, and how the two influence each other.
