Like other internet-based disciplines, UX is undergoing rapid expansion. Soon, a single person won’t be able to master the field in its entirety. The time for specialization is upon us.
When designing anything, think user abilities and limitations. First ensure functionality, then ergonomics, and only then, as the final step, add in emotions.
A useful tool for obtaining basic initial information regarding a design job is a questionnaire. Let’s look at what such a document should include.
One method of obtaining information to use as a jumping-off point is for a designer and their client to fill out a discovery questionnaire together. This document can help set out a general direction to move forward in.
In website creation, teamwork is useful up until the final design stage. Then, a single person must take charge – the designer. Too many cooks spoil the broth.
Every design job starts like this: we know next to nothing about the client’s business, they know nothing about design. There is a chasm between the two worlds.
Whether the client’s initial inquiry is unclear and vague, or incredibly detailed, you can be sure of one thing – the key components of the project’s specifications will be missing.
Designing and building a website is the perfect example to use when talking about all general design work. Similar work processes hold true when designing an app, a chair, or a trade fair presentation.
