Process

A peek into how my mind works!

 

User-Centered Design

User-Centered Design (UCD) is a framework of processes (not restricted to interfaces or technologies) in which the needs, wants, and limitations of end users of a product, service or process are given extensive attention at each stage of the design process.

User Research

Capture user behavior, pain points, motivations, and needs from contextual inquires. Group into logical pillars. Map out product features for each pillar to identify gaps, opportunities, and feature bloat.

USER stories

Making sure you know who your users are. To do this, you need to talk to them and use the information you gather from those conversations to develop user personas.

prototype

You can start creating paper prototypes and continuously iterate to more functional ones. Use sketches, HTML pages or static images, then just get some people and test.

 
 
 

ui elements / style guide

Reuse elements and patterns, follow your style guidelines, don’t have one? Create your guidelines. Start small, then create pages.

high fidelity mockups

It’s time to let your design shine, make it in the right way, don’t stop with the first solution, always ask “is this the best you can do?”
