CUSTOMER DISCOVERY & EXPERIMENTS Tell me…? #1 MOST COMMON PROBLEM WITH PROTOTYPING ==NOT BEING READY USER STORIES & PROTOTYPES How? Having focal propositions supported by customer discovery is the first prereq. to good prototyping
  21. 21. Copyright 2014 Cowan Publishing STEP 1: ID WHATY YOU NEED & FIND COMP’S Don’t reinvent the wheel. (startup’s have enough risk) Identify the interface elements you need, then find comparables and existing patterns. (ref: bit.ly/protonow) ALEX COWAN AlexanderCowan.com @cowanSF
  22. 22. Copyright 2014 Cowan Publishing CASE STUDY: BRAND LATTICE ALEX COWAN AlexanderCowan.com @cowanSF Brand identity application for designers and their clients
  23. 23. Copyright 2014 Cowan Publishing STEP 1: NEEDS AND COMP’S ALEX COWAN AlexanderCowan.com @cowanSF NEEDED: sequential process with ability to skip ahead and go back; strong anchor in where you are in the process COMP’S: wizard-type interfaces for shopping and item configuration
  24. 24. Copyright 2014 Cowan Publishing EXERCISE: IDENTIFY COMP’S ALEX COWAN AlexanderCowan.com @cowanSF NEEDED: What are the key functional elements you need?

  25. 25. Copyright 2014 Cowan Publishing As Presenter As Audience 1) What are the key functional blocks? 2) What are some best practice examples? 3) What do they tell you? What parts do you, don’t you consider applicable? - Focus on the process; avoid editorial - Ask a lot of questions - Think about it like an investor EXERCISE: PRESENTATIONS ALEX COWAN AlexanderCowan.com @cowanSF (2 min./ each x 3 students)
  26. 26. Copyright 2014 Cowan Publishing STEP 2: WIREFRAMING ALEX COWAN AlexanderCowan.com @cowanSF Wireframes are for discussion. Good wireframing tools: - help you color in the lines using existing UI metaphors (scroll bars, drop-down’s, etc.) - are easy to use and uncomplicated - facilitate annotation and discussion
  27. 27. Copyright 2014 Cowan Publishing WIREFRAMING AT BRAND LATTICE ALEX COWAN AlexanderCowan.com @cowanSF Concept items I did in Balsamiq (wireframing tool)
  28. 28. Copyright 2014 Cowan Publishing WIREFRAMING AT BRAND LATTICE ALEX COWAN AlexanderCowan.com @cowanSF More detail from design lead (created in Adobe Illustrator)
  29. 29. Copyright 2014 Cowan Publishing PROTOTYPING AT BRAND LATTICE 1) Photoshop designs from design lead 2) Created concept prototype in Keynote* 3) Finished early user testing * PowerPoint has similar functionality
  30. 30. Copyright 2014 Cowan Publishing PROTOTYPING AT LARGE Let your key assumptions drive experiments to determine the type of prototype you need Keynote and PowerPoint let you link shapes to slides for basic (fake) interaction There are many prototyping tools that provide for interactive prototypes If you know what you want, just doing static interactions in HTML/CSS/JS isn’t bad (if you have access to that skill set)
  31. 31. Copyright 2014 Cowan Publishing DOCUMENT UX ASSUMPTIONS AS YOU GO Let’s assume. Then test. Let’s not argue
  32. 32. Copyright 2014 Cowan Publishing EXAMPLE ASSUMPTIONS & EXPERIMENTS brand lattice UI: Drag and drop isn’t yet in common use. Would users get it? Noted as key assumption and became early focal item in user test
  33. 33. Copyright 2014 Cowan Publishing ITERATING BASED ON TEST RESULTS 70% of users didn’t get the drag and drop in this version This change in the annotation was enough so they got it

  39. 39. Copyright 2014 Cowan Publishing BEING RELEVANT, LOOKING GOOD Four phases to branding: Strategy Creation Expression Stewardship What is the company (or product) about? - Starting point: your positioning statement from session 1 - Bear in mind your customer storytelling: personas, problem scenarios, propositions - You can create a brand strategy moodboard on brandlattice.com in about 10 minutes
  40. 40. Copyright 2014 Cowan Publishing BEING RELEVANT, LOOKING GOOD Four phases to branding: Strategy Creation Expression Stewardship What is does this company (or product) look like? - CONSISTENCY IS THE #1 MOST IMPORTANT PART OF YOUR VISUAL COMMUNICATION - Take 20 minutes and create a style guide: bit.ly/3tostyleguide (optional)
  41. 41. Copyright 2014 Cowan Publishing BEING RELEVANT, LOOKING GOOD Four phases to branding: Strategy Creation Expression Stewardship How do we apply our brand strategy to (front end, business cards, website, etc.)? - Now this is (relatively) easy!
