My Approach To Design
Design For Reality
  • - Ability to discern solutions that are realistic given existing parameters and limitations.
  • - Design the best user experience considering time, resources and budget constraints.
Problem Solving Strategies
  • - Understand current situation and identify a workable process for meeting functional and user requirements.
  • - Develop mental and conceptual models as part of the problem definition process.
Design From The User's Perspective
  • - Visualize entire user process from start to finish to discover the best solution for their needs.
  • - Validate designs with users to gauge their effectiveness and usefulness.
User-Centered Design

What is the problem? What are the requirements? Who are the end users?

Design Phase

How do we solve the problem? What is the best approach? How will it work?

Evaluation Phase

Did we solve the problem? Is it easy and intuitive? Can we build it?
