My Process

All projects are different, so I mix and match design processes and techniques based on complexity, creative direction, budget, and time constraints.

Research

Identify the problem and desired outcomes. Research the market, research competitors, collect data, talk to people—learn more about the problem and its potential solutions.

Sketch

I'll usually start with a sketch. Anything goes. Sometimes I'll sketch on paper, or on a device. Sometimes the sketch is just a doodle.

Wireframe

If I'm starting with a more solid design concept, I'll go into wireframes so I can start exploring layouts. Wireframes will vary in detail.

Mockup

Defining more of the overall characteristics of the aesthetics. What is the design language and what is it supposed to communicate?

Interactive Prototype

Like wireframes, prototypes can vary in fidelity, but usually include some form of interaction.

Feedback / Refine

Collect feedback from key people and make decisions based on that feedback. In practice, the collecting, interpreting, and prioritizing of feedback is a daily event that happens throughout the life of a project.

Launch / Publish

The project is live! So, what next? Repeat the step above.
