By a proven process, I guide projects from start to finish. In six stages, we explore the concept, we make it specific, we work towards an interactive and visual design, and I get it developed in code. Find out below what each of these stages entail.
You've got an idea, and you've probably already taken a few steps towards execution. Yet at this stage it can be extremely valuable to get somebody involved who has a broad knowledge of business, as well as a deep understanding of digital media and what they have to offer.
After all, this stage is decisive of all that comes next. A stage at which you don't want to miss any opportunities. Rather, you want to ask as many questions as possible, and try to answer them.Volgende stap
Before venturing into the design stage, it's imperative to be specific about what's going to be made. Documenting the feature set means closing the loop with regards to the functionality, allowing us to identify and resolve any flaws in the concept. This process produces a set of user stories: short narratives of what end users should be able to achieve using the product.
At this stage, I often recommend keeping it small: to reduce the concept to its bare minimum, allowing us to focus on achieving the prime goal of its users. This way, any lessons learned in the coming stages, can be put to use when expanding the product further.Volgende stap
A high quality product is effective and pleasant to use. Zero friction, maximum joy. The interaction design will make the difference between an alright experience and a great experience. This stage will decide if users will keep returning, after kicking the tires once or twice.
At this stage, aesthetics, colors and brands are explicitly omitted. The objective of the interaction design is to establish a natural and pleasant flow in using the product. Offering relevant choices at the right moment - not making the user having to hesitate. If executed well, this stage will distinguish your product from the competition.Volgende stap
Once the right user flow through the product has been established, it's important that the product's look and feel match your brand and company values, and/or the topic and objective of your product.
This is not only about typography and color, but rather about attitude. Is this a serious application, that should convey a sense of security and reliability? Or is it a jolly, optimistic endeavour that should be about having fun? A quick inquiry into these values, and if applicable, those of your brand, will give us a good starting point for achieving a great visual design.Volgende stap
During development, we can agree on a number of in-between delivery moments, allowing you to keep tabs on the progress.Volgende stap
