Easy, efficient, and delightful user experiences result when product teams gather, analyze, and apply user feedback as an integral part of the design process. TecEd can help your organization follow a user-centered design (UCD) process for creating product, application, and website user interfaces. TecEd’s experienced designers apply user interface design best practices when leading or supporting your design teams.
Single Source User Interface Design Process
TecEd’s end-to-end user interface design process provides you with a single source from system concept to creation:
- Requirements Gathering—interviewing users and project stakeholders, performing tasks analysis, conducting participatory design, and using these inputs to create a requirements document that includes personas, user scenarios, and user experience evaluation metrics.
- User Modeling—developing personas, user stories, and storyboards.
- Participatory Design—workshops in which users, designers, marketers, executives, and developers work together to come up with conceptual designs that reflect the business goals and user requirements.
- Information Architecture—Organizing the information space based on task analysis and content modeling.
- Interaction Design—low-fidelity sketches and diagrams (wireframes) of the user interface for key tasks to elicit feedback, followed by revised, higher-fidelity designs (wireframes, clickable wireframes, or prototypes) to validate flow of key tasks and screen/page layout.
- Visual Design—selection of color, style of user interface elements, and brand identity—validated through user research
- Design Implementation—UI development by TecEd in conjunction with partner firms.
User interface design can be applied to any user interface design and development effort, and can be adapted to Agile development processes.
