Workshop Deliverables

Problem Definition & Vision
Fixing the wrong problem can be more than just costly. It can set your team behind further than you were when you started. We want to help ensure you avoid that. Let's dig dipper into your product and users so we can clearly define the problem and vision. Then we get to work. 
Persona Definition
Persona's help us put a face to a use case. Understanding who the user is will be just as important as what they do when they interact with your product.

Allows the framing of the consumer’s motivations, emotions, and needs in each step of the journey, creating design solutions that are appropriate for each. This step often includes customer journey and UX flow maps.

Wireframes are a rough concept for the layout of a digital experience that can be presented in low or mid–fidelity. They're an essential step to bringing your vision to life.
Visual Design
Once you have a solid user experience, it's time to focus attention on the visual design. We deliver hi-fidelity layered on top of the wireframes using imagery, color, shapes, typography, and form to enhance usability and improve the user experience.
Prototypes Demo
We work to create simulated experiences with various tools and level of interaction, to test workflow and interactions with users to gather feedback and iterate throughout the design process. These can paper, InVision, Micro-Interactions, Keynote or a dev environment prototype.  
Technology Roadmap
We provide strategy and planning on architecture, stack and hosting considerations. We also build database diagrams, process flow diagrams, function documentation, and others.
