UI UX Design: Re-imagining and Re-defining user experiences across platforms and digital ecosystems

In a digital landscape, every business needs the experience of their users to be relevant, delightful and impactful. As customers and users both become digitally mature, UI UX also stands at a critical juncture to come to an age, propelling user journeys and interactions to the next level of a smarter, future-oriented reality.

Businesses and brands are increasingly aware of the importance of User Experience in their growth roadmap. Augmenting product and service innovation initiatives with equally strong UI UX capabilities is not choice to make. It is an imperative.

Experience driven transformation is the order of the day. As a UI UX company rooted in human-centric methodologies and product design DNA, we are more prepared than ever to drive your transformation.

It is also important to consider the maturity of UI/ UX practice as it is your third pillar along with marketing and technology. Maturity in terms of the breadth of capabilities, thought leadership and understanding the intricacies of how UX UI not only fits in the grand scheme of things, but also lead the future.

20 Product performance metrics you should not miss

What are the challenges that could be impeding your next business move?

1. You are a technology empowered company and you want to productize that disruptive idea of yours.

Conceptualizing and creating a product needs you to have a vision, know your competition and create a great design from the word go, while this being in the context of your strategic positioning. You require a team which would have inherent capabilities to think product, design it for acceptance and along the way address: Product strategy, Positioning, Branding, Communication and other needs that tag along.

At Think Design we look at needs, developing a way of working that helps companies in their product creation journey as we shift from macro to micro and back, rapidly as we prototype. Our multidisciplinary capabilities, technological expertise and innovation led approach to work, drives us to build and deliver products that win customers!

Further, our understanding of data in the realm of user experience, user journeys and user behaviour has helped many of our clients leverage our capabilities to their advantage. Below are a few manifestations of our expertise in bringing pioneering initiatives to life.

2. You are a business looking to grow while trying to keep your legacy intact.

In a rapid spree to keep pace with your competition and your customers’ needs, your touch points may have grown inorganically. You have increased your offerings, however, they may all seem incoherent and not aligned to your organizational goals and operational concerns. In order to offer coherent User Experience, you need to take the path of transformation. You want to take that big plunge instead of getting into the incrementality trap.

At Think Design we understand and consider the operational, marketing, strategic and IT challenges of a business while solutioning to keep intact the fundamental identity. Our in-depth understanding of the key ground challenges of a business, its user segment and impact of innovative changes it would bring to its organization and stakeholders, runs through our years of work expertise built in tandem with different industries and domains.

Further, our deep expertise in User Research helps us identify those constituents of success and go after them… strategically and deliberately. We have architected and delivered many such transformations in the past and here are a few manifestations of that:

OUR APPROACH

 

Constituents of a class-leading online experience

We advocate the concept of breakdown and conquer. We embark on several baby steps, each with a goal of its own; and at the end, we would have reached where we envisioned.

Information-Architecture

Information Architecture

Information Architecture addresses the placeholders for various pieces of information or modules. At Think Design, the IA is architected with user journey as basis, contextualized differentially for different platforms.

Navigation Framework

Navigation Framework

Do we require mega menu or more work space? Are we considering touch devices? Are users predisposed to a structure ? We address these questions and more.

Wireframe Iteration

Wireframing

The purpose of wireframing is to generate alternatives rapidly before each element is detailed to perfection. It’s an essential step to iterate and discuss technical approaches and strategic alternatives.

Storyboarding

Storyboarding

Interactivity being key to the quality of user experience, we consider storyboarding an activity giving a birds eye view to the UI pattern. Storyboards capture user journey, experience and address key flows.

Prototyping

Prototyping

Prototyping allows the validation of ideas with users, stakeholders and designers themselves. We employ various methods of prototyping, choosing among quick and dirty to pixel perfect prototypes as the situation demands.

Interaction Design

Interaction Design

Interaction Design manifests in controls, components, animations and feedback; and define the usability and relevance of an interface. We innovate those elements, if need be.

Input Forms

Input Forms

User input forms are the primary way your users are communicating to you. Designing forms better, incorporating and designing newer technological alternatives like chatbots, makes life easier for you and your support teams.

Data visualization

Information and Data Design

Better visualization leads to better insight. In times where no application is complete without embedded analytics, we provide actionable insights, through user centric design, powered by superior data discovery.
