UX process and Design thinking
My process for creating digital experiences involves researching the target audience through surveys, interviews, and usability testing. Then, I design the interface, create prototypes, test them with users, refine the design, and implement it. Ongoing monitoring and maintenance are crucial for optimal user experience.
My design thinking involves empathizing with the users, defining the problem, ideating solutions, prototyping designs, and testing with users. I use an iterative approach to refine and improve the design until it meets the needs of the users and the business goals of the project. The goal is to create a user-centered design that solves the defined problem and achieves the desired outcomes for the business.
Design System Approach
I usually leverage the power of design system and specifically 8-point grid approach. It provides consistency and efficiency in the design process by establishing a set of guidelines and components. It saves time and promotes collaboration while ensuring a cohesive look and feel across products and platforms. The result is a better user experience and stronger brand identity.
