In many ways designing requires skillful listening; sometimes it is not that easy to express what one wants or likes, we often know better what we don’t like.
And on the other hand, in cases where the client regards that they know exactly what they want, it is our job to test these ideas and make sure that the creative direction is indeed final. Sometimes things get nailed down faster; sometimes ideas and directions shift and the process takes more time. Ideally we recommend giving enough time for the design process in order to make sure that the design files will settle in and that our client feels connected and committed to them.
Ultimately, we regard it as our responsibility to work towards a professional web and mobile media design in the framework of requested direction and feedback. Our ten+ years in business has thought us a lot how to be sensitive to our clients’ comments while neither overburdening them with requested tasks nor overrunning their views and requests.
What does a typical design process for web and mobile look like? Below is a flow sample of how a typical web and mobile design process might go about. When working with our client we request feedback and approval on each step before moving forward with the code production process.
What We Have:
Together we go through existing identity design elements, likes and dislikes. Sometimes certain identity elements can be taken literally to web and mobile, and sometimes they need a certain degree of interpretation.
Here’s a User’s Experience:
We illustrate and/or wire-framing the roadmap for a user-experience road-map. Please note: regarding on the scale of required dynamic features – such as a registration system, an online product catalog system, an ordering and customer check-out system, My Account features – this workload often exceeds the timeline of a standard web or mobile design process.
Interesting new changes:
We foster acceptance and understanding that sometimes good ideas take their time: we agree that the client has the right to change their mind and request changes during and after the coding phase
Interaria has walked through these steps many times in the past, and we know how to guide the conversation, structure deliverables and provide results. By breaking the design process into tasks, the process can feel enjoyable.
