I’m interested in how people assimilate and accommodate knowledge, how we add meaning to everyday things, and how we interact with them in a unique, individual and yet predictable way. Finally, I’m interested in aiding this process when it comes to design.
Personas are a starting point to define users, their goals, their environment and struggles.
Problem scenarios describes current practise. Followed by claim analysis they give the insight of how people work, think and overcome daily problems, that new system targets to eliminate.
Activity scenarios describe ideas of how to meet the users' needs. Showing how the system will work before concentrating on visual aspect helps to overcome difficulties of using multi-disciplinary teams for system development.
Evaluation is the most important part. Carefully performed, can reduce time and costs of developing the product.
With the conceptual design in hand, I use prototypes to test my ideas with users.
Creating visual identity for the product (look & feel) results with the specification for developers to do their magic.
"The public is more familiar with bad design than good design. It is, in effect, conditioned to prefer bad design, because that is what it lives with. The new becomes threatening, the old reassuring."
