  • Hi, I’m Leon (C.K.) Leong from Techsailor Group. Today, we’ll be talking about how design and business should go hand-in-hand.
  • How close should design and business be integrated? As close as a newly-wedded couple!
  • Web Designer Depot posed a very interesting question.
  • First question: What’s the difference between art and design?
  • The difference between art & design: Good art is interpreted, good design is understood.
  • The difference between art & design: good art sends a different message to everyone, good design sends the same message to everyone.
  • In project management, it’s well-known that there are constant disagreements between the various roles.
  • Daily chronicles of a project team…
  • We’re all driven by our individual mindsets.
  • Let’s take a step back and look at the “spectators”….
  • Second question: What’s the purpose of a design?
  • To communicate and prompt-to-action
  • Here’s what a user experience cycle look like.
  • An example of Adobe’s Model…
  • Here’s a REAL Techsailor example…
  • Do you see the difference before….
  • … and after?
  • Market/Sell - Marry vision with audience Execution: Effective marketing taglines and media based on Vision/positioning and target audiences , Targeted Messages and Links Educate Availability of and easy access to information Execution: Effective information architecture for the contents and ease of navigation website wide Prompt-to-Action Motivate to do something Execution: “ BIG RED BUTTONS !”, Contact Us manifestations Analytics Derive actionable insights But this is still largely Marketing.
  • But what about… Social!!!
  • Yet another REAL Techsailor example
  • Do you see the difference in engagement level between this design….
  • … and this design?
  • There are many different ways of implementing more social elements to a site. These are but just some examples.
  • That is Online Customer Engagement
  • Thank you. We hope you find this helpful. If you have any more questions, do not hesitate to contact us!

  • In project management , it’s well-known that there are constant disagreements between the various roles (Coming from a Techsailor context… Sales, Account Manager, Project Manager, Design and Technical)
  • Daily chronicles of a project team… Note: This is just a hypothetical scenario. The actors “involved” are just arbitrarily protagonists. Fisher – Project Manager, Ashley – Designer, Leon – Account Manager Fisher: Ash, the front page needs to be an overview of the whole site… Can you add in boxes for latest news, events and promotions? Ashley: I disagree; that would make the look and feel of the front page too complex and cluttered… it’s bad coming from a design stand point… Fisher: The client’s business is very much online so we need to showcase what’s available to the users in a birds eye view… Ashley: Can we just show case one of each of the latest items so that the site does not get too crowded? Leon: Hey guys, can I ask in the first place who are the target audiences? And what’s of value to them?
  • We’re all driven by our individual… MINDSETS
