A good user interface in 4 steps.
The UX methodology guides you through several essential steps to achieve your dream user interface.
The Scoping and Research Phase
You start with an in-depth scoping and research phase. This stage is crucial, as it allows you to immerse yourself in your customer's business. It helps you to develop a common language with users, creating the basis for meeting them and carrying out the in-depth research needed to design an appropriate user interface.
During this phase, you can organize user interviews, focus groups, or even quantitative questionnaires when you have a substantial user base. The aim is to ask users about their needs and expectations of a new product.
Solution definition phase
After this research phase, we enter the solution definition phase. This is where you define the functional structure of the solution, building the product skeleton with the main functionalities expected by users.
The user interface design phase
We then move on to the design phase, where we implement iterative loops derived from design thinking. These loops are at the heart of our approach. Start by creating interfaces in the form of wireframes, low-fidelity grayscale mock-ups.
These wireframes are then tested with users, who provide you with their feedback. This feedback helps you to validate or invalidate hypotheses concerning the information structure and functioning of the future application.
The graphic layer creation phase, key to the user interface
Finally, in the last phase, once these wireframes have been validated by users, you can add the graphic layer to the finalized interface mock-ups. The famous wireframes. This is when the product comes to life, becoming visually attractive and ready to be realized. If all goes well, you'll have a highly attractive user interface.
