My product design approach

Here’s how I approach, conceptualise, and advance a product through various stages of maturity.

UX strategy

Creating policies, principles and plan of action to help business and users win their goals amidst competition.

Research

Understand the users, their needs, behaviours, and pain points. This involve user interviews, surveys, market analysis, and reviewing existing data.

Problem definition

Clearly define the problem we’re trying to solve. This often involves creating user personas, user stories, and job statements based on the research findings.

Ideation

Generate a wide range of ideas and potential solutions. Techniques like brainstorming, sketching, and ideation workshops are commonly used in this phase.

Design

I design user flows and visual elements, including detailed interactions, high-fidelity designs, and UI components, while ensuring accessibility and responsiveness.

Prototyping

I develop a basic prototype of the product featuring functional navigation, user flows, and essential interactions to materialise ideas for testing and iteration.

Testing

Conduct usability testing with real users to gather feedback on the prototypes. This step is crucial for validating assumptions, understanding user interactions, and identifying areas for improvement.

Design QA

Ensuring quality standards are met including tone and voice, messaging, accessibility, consistency of experience with other areas of the product.

Monitor & evaluate

After launch, continuously monitor the product’s performance, gather user feedback, and measure against key metrics to evaluate its success.
