xDesign - Design Challenge

Understand

Please note: As this is a project brief from an xDesign Product Manager most of the the understanding in terms of “Stakeholder Interviews, Creating User Personas & Defining Use Cases” has already been done. 

Define outcomes

What are the deliverables? How can we meet the expectations of the client? What is the most efficient route to produce the desired outcome?

  1. Read and understand the brief.
    – Question anything that is ambiguous, unclear, open to interpretation or contradictory.
    – Confirm with Product Managers what is being asked for.
  2. Create a ‘feature list’ from the brief (see image attached for a visual sketch of this). This list will form the basis of the on-screen assets.
  3. Identify user personas which could influence design decisions.
  4. Identify user journeys that are required to illustrate the success of the design.

This is also a good time to add items to the backlog for future releases. This information is helpful for future-proofing designs.

Competitive analysis, research latest UX trends and patterns, understand engineering constraints

Competitive Analysis

Find other mobile apps that do the same thing. ie Monster, TotalJobs, Reed, Indeed, Jobsite, JobSwipe, CV-Library, Job Today, Glassdoor etc What works well, what are just gimmicks and what can we do to improve and streamline our proposed functionality.

Research Latest UX Trends

UX planet, Mobbin, Medium, Dribbble, UI patterns. These are regularly checked anyway but just to research if there’s anything specific or new to the job sector.

Understanding engineering constraints

I’d normally work with a dev team at this stage to discuss engineering constraints. This could affect the design / implementation.

Brainstorm, sketch and evaluate ideas, gain validation from stakeholders and users.

Far far away, behind the word mountains, far from the countries Vokalia and Consonantia, there live the blind texts. Separated they live in Bookmarksgrove right at the coast of the Semantics, a large language ocean. A small river named Duden flows by their place and supplies it with the necessary regelialia. It is a paradisematic country, in which roasted parts of sentences fly into your mouth.

Even the all-powerful Pointing has no control about the blind texts it is an almost unorthographic life One day however a small line of blind text by the name of Lorem Ipsum decided to leave for the far World of Grammar. The Big Oxmox advised her not to do so, because there were thousands of bad Commas, wild Question Marks and devious Semikoli.

design images, create prototypes, define specifications
