“Design is the process of expending considerable time, thought and energy into making something that looks and feels effortless.”

 

My Process

It’s about taking a holistic approach to the projects I work on — grounding myself in understanding, gaining perspective, embracing the collaborative process, finding ways to test multiple ideas and iterating — to arrive at the most effective and practicable solutions.

 

Research to understand
  • Market study
  • Competitive Analysis
  • Heuristic Evaluations
  • Stakeholder Interviews
Listen to learn
  • Questionnaires
  • User Interviews
  • Usability Evaluation
  • User Stories
Synthesize to define
  • Personas
  • Empathy Maps
  • Mind Maps
  • Experience Maps
  • User Needs Analysis
  • User Journeys
Generate concepts
  • Structured Brainstorming
  • Ideation Workshops
  • Concept Organization
  • Problem Framing
  • Sketching
  • Storyboards
Visualize the interaction
  • Use Cases
  • Wireframes
  • User Flow Diagrams

Communicate the idea
  • Rapid Prototyping
  • Paper Prototypes
  • Visual Mockups
Test the prototype
  • Usability Testing
  • Card Sorting

Refine and repeat

The feedback from the testing is what drives the iterative process, giving me essential insight into refining the prototype, rethinking the interaction, even generating more concepts.
