User experience design and development
As one of the premier product development companies in California we know that if customers have a bad user experience they will not return. We focus on the user experience and user interface from the start and throughout the entire product design and development process.
We employ a structured framework that consists of corresponding activities performed in stages – to include: design, analysis, evaluation and implementation to deliver an exceptional user experience.
Rapid and rigorous evaluation methods are integral to the strategic evaluation activity we use to refine interaction designs. Our approach is a characteristic one in which we “wash, rinse, and repeat”.
Designing with user experience in mind
As products are being developed, people pay close attention to what the products do. User experience is often overlooked, how it works often makes the difference between a product’s success and or failure..
User experience is not about the inner workings of a product or services. User experience is about how it works on the outside, and how a person comes into contact with it. When someone asks you what it is like to use a product or service, they are asking about the user experience.
All products create a user experience. Some technological products, such as cell phones or coffee makers, require multiple interactions, while others, like a gas cap or door handle, are physical and more simplistic.
User experience is a question of context
Aesthetics make certain the buttons on a keyboard are appealing in both texture and shape.
Functional design ensures the desired results take place when the button is selected.
User experience design assures that aesthetics and functionality work in unison and within the framework of the rest of the product.
Little things count
Everything the user experiences should be the result of a conscious decision on your part. Remember, the little things count, no matter what the product or service.
Like a double-edged sword, the products and services we use frustrate and empower us, complicate yet simplify our lives, and bring us closer yet separate us. Even though we rely on countless products and services each day, we forget the obvious, they are all made by people.
Simply put, if your users have a bad experience, they will not return.
