Good design helps and guides, bad design will lead to confusion and frustration.

The Process : Design Sprint

Using tools such as Google-Venture’s Design Sprint, rounds of DesignRapid Prototyping and User Test, to get fast, relevant and real feedback from the users.

01 research

Research

Research will define the problem. We learn from the market, the competitors and other industries.

Define different personas, main users, flows/interaction, visitors’ needs and goals for each one.

A problem well defined is a problem half solved.

02 UX design

User Experience

Develop a vision from a high-level view to details. Look for patterns and common interactions, create consistency and  a cohesive design language.

Architecture logical flows for the user, site maps, main use-cases.

A good experience is well guided and explained, removing any frustration and doubt.

03 Prototype

Prototype

Prototyping means building the design for test, making it interactive and feel like as the final product on screen.

From printed copies to more sophisticated tools such as Invision, FramerJS, Axure prototypes.

A good prototype recreates the critical parts of the final product but should be build fast and quickly.

05 UI design

User Interface (UI) Design

Is the design of layouts, patterns, animations and an strong branding applied.

The brand have the chance to exist and breath as an interface consistently across different devices.

A good Interface will strengthen and support the experience with the brand and beauty.

04 User Test

User Tests

Test, test, tests. Validate the design with prototypes, find the weak and the strong points.

In and agile environment user-tests won’t need laboratories or complex methodology: “After the first study with five participants has found 85% of the usability problems…” – Nielsen Norman Group

A day of testing will save dozens in development, time and money.

06 iterate

Iterate

Iteration means regular improvements. Use A/B test, analytics and feedback from real users. Not just for the UX & UI but also from the market needs.

Constant focus on site improvement and adaptation, business growth and cost optimization.

Everyone in your company is in charge of delivering great design.
