Here's my ideal

Design Process

How I make your business reach your goals by aligning them to "real" user needs.

Empathise

Understand and define the problem. Before jumping into designs or presenting solutions, we have to understand, and also even scrutinize the initial problem and see if that truly is a problem people are facing. This includes user research, competitor research, market analysis and exploring the solutions that already exist.

Design

Solutionize and Iterate. After we have identified a problem, we would think about multiple solutions that can solve the problem. This would also involve testing and iteration from potential users to see if the proposed solution actually meets their needs. At the end of this stage, you'll get pixel perfect designs so that your devs can take this further.

Development

Breathing life into your designs. Being a developer myself, I can either take the design and create scalable and robust code, or I can work with your developers to make sure that the design gets implemented the way we envisioned it to work, and provides the experience we want.

Gaining Feedback

Iteration. No design is perfect, design is an iterative process, and for that, we always have to keep going back to the user to learn and iterate. An ideal design process never ends, keeps on learning and keeps on improving over time.
