Design with Principles

Beating the competition to market means trusting skilled professionals and using proven methodologies. Timing and product stability are vital but those won’t matter if customers don’t buy your finished product.

Following user-centered design principles keeps the team focused on the user’s needs. Asking questions, taking risks and getting feedback are how you meet customer expectations.

Ask the Right Questions

What problems are we trying to solve? Who are we designing for? What assumptions are we making? What constraints do we have? What’s our deadline? How will we measure success?

Think Outside the Box

Once you’ve defined the problem, audience, scope and success metrics, you’re ready to move on to the fun part, ideation. It helps to get out of the confines of the office. The best ideas come from the most unlikely sources.

Do Something Memorable

In the race to market, companies end up creating a product that is unreliable or difficult to scale. The first generation product should have only enough functionality to validate your assumptions. Then focus on adding one cool feature that sets your product apart from the crowd.
