My Process

Objective-Based Design is a creative approach to solving problems. I work iteratively through research, strategy, and execution to produce measurable results for your business.

Planning & Ideation

Product Manager engages Design team for Lo-Fi mocks to be used for defining scope & gathering estimates of work.

  • Initial Meeting
  • Needs Assessment
  • Research

Discover

Discover phase consists of discovery meeting(s) needed to gather requirements for design to begin and is lead by the designer.

  • Constraints
  • High-level Requirements
  • Competitive Analysis, Ideas & Solutions

Define

Define phase exists to synthesize ideas and solutions gathered in Discovery in order to define design-actionable items. The meeting(s) is facilitated by the lead designer. Swimlanes and Agile Planning are apart of this phase.

  • Information Architecture
  • Feature Capabilities

Evaluate

User Testing, if planned for in swimlanes. Heuristic Evaluation. Checking that what was actually built matches design goals, styles & approved mocks. Changes are documented in backlog for future sprints.
