How to Create an App Design That Works Wonders

What is “design that works”?

How can I create a UX design?

  1. Empathize — Learn about your customers
  2. Define — Construct a point of view based on customer needs and insights
  3. Ideate — Brainstorm many possible solutions
  4. Prototype — Create several prototypes of your solutions
  5. Test — Put your prototypes in front of users to get feedback
  1. Understand the context of use — Try to understand the context in which your users will use your product.
  2. Specify requirements — Identify and elicit users’ requirements.
  3. Design a solution — Develop possible solutions.
  4. Evaluate the solution — Evaluate your solution against your users’ context and requirements, checking how closely it matches users’ specific needs.

What is Claritus’s approach to UX design?

1. Think — Find out users’ needs to make them happy

  • Conduct UX research (qualitative and quantitative) to learn more about your target audience’s needs; analyze the market and competitors.
  • Elicit customers’ requirements. Working closely with business analysts, define your business requirements, and prepare technical specifications.
  • Create personas and roles, or fictional characters that represent users of your product.
  • Study all project materials, whether there’s a bare business idea or a detailed specification with the desired functionality, mind maps, user roles, and so on.
  • Conduct a range of interviews with the client to elicit their requirements.
  • Conduct market analysis. Study close competitors and reviews of their products, interview subject matter experts, and, sometimes, observe users.
  • Prepare a presentation for the client that may include mind maps, mood boards, references, and a couple of initial app concepts.

2. Create — Develop possible solutions based on users’ requirements

  • Export all of your screens as separate images
  • Use InVision (or any other tool you prefer) to build an interactive prototype with transitions
  • Share your prototype with a client or, even better, with its future users
  • Test your prototype (see the Test section below for details)
  • Find an appropriate visual style using information from your research (design brief, mood boards, references)
  • Don’t forget about developers: use Zeplin or Avocode for sharing specifications and assets

3. Test — Put your prototypes in front of users to get feedback

4. Repeat — Iterate until you get satisfactory results
