My UX toolkit and approach


avatar

Research + mapping

Discovery and planning


User research to get inside the customer's shoes to understand their needs, their goals, behaviour and what motivates them, and to identify pain points and opportunities for improvement.

Metrics & analytics, persona development, stakeholder and end-user interviews, UX audits & analysis, competitive reviews, usability testing, experience mapping and user flows

Sketch + wireframe

Explore


Sketching to get very basic concepts on paper and quickly visualise ideas, as well as brainstorming with clients and teammates. Refining the concept further by creating a series of wireframes to illustrate the screens and user flow.

Information architecture, sketching, wireframing, process and task diagrams

Visual + prototyping

Design and prototype


Detailed visual designs for each page designed in Sketch, and clickable prototypes created, using tools such as Marvel, Invision or even hand-coded HTML, to test and validate how it will work and feel. Further improvement and iteration based on what we learn.

Design comps, detailed specifications, style and pattern guides, prototyping, and developer hand-over.

Metrics + analytics

Implement and analyse


Ensuring the design works for users and that it's implemented according to plan. Ongoing monitoring of key usage data to determine how people are using the product and to identify opportunities for future enhancement.

Metrics & analytics, usability testing, conversion rate optimisation and A/B testing
