How do we do it?
- Start with the design analysis that outlines the client business goals and target user groups;
- Study how users will interact with the website or web application in great detail and document user behavior scenarios;
- Integrate usability testing on each stage of development to avoid vital mistakes that can slow down front end development process.
A very important and largely unique component of many engagements is a “Wire-frame Prototype”. This is an implementation of much of the foreseen screens with transitions without the underlying technical implementation. A wire-frame is a basic layout of what the screens will look like on paper. It is similar to an artist rendition of a proposed building. When you see the user flow, interactions and how pages are transformed, you will be able to provide better constructive feedback. When we complete the wire-frame process, we start on the page prototype. This is where we start to put the page together without the code behind it. The prototype allows us to layout the web page and change it using feedback before we do back-end coding.
The prototype also acts as a proof of concept that the technology stack chosen is capable of meeting the technical and business objectives. It is further used as a demonstration environment to familiarize various internal and/or external stakeholders with the proposed solution and solicit their feedback.
