Harmony in Design and Development
User Experience is a broad term that can cover anything from how well the user can navigate the product, how easy it is to use, how relevant the content displayed is. In this session, I will cover how our experience design team apply human-centred design methodology for creating products that provide meaningful and relevant experiences to users. This is an iterative process where we take an understanding of the users and their context as a starting point for all design and development.
Well, this is the ideal happy path. But how many times have you been part of a project where the delivered UI designs were far from technically feasible? Maybe they were technically feasible but completely killed the scope of a project? Perhaps development is ongoing, and you found out that the UI design is with usability issues? One of the challenges software development faces today is figuring out how to integrate Design Teams with Development Teams. All these issues cost time and money to resolve, and it’s easily fixed with a little thought and strategy. I will share some of our tips and tricks to harmonize the design and development and work seamlessly together.
Our experience design team brings together experienced and specialised user experience, development, and Drupal experts, successfully launched many projects within the European Commission, other European Institutions and Agencies and international organisations like United Nations agencies. Let’s see some examples from this portfolio to look closer to the best practices, both from design and development, helps to align the required functionality to feasible technical solutions that can be maintained in the long term.
