How I work.
I believe in getting people to interact with experiences as quickly as possible, replacing static wireframes and screens with prototypes and physical artefacts that people can engage with to provide immediate, meaningful feedback.
I believe the most important part of defining any experience is research. Knowing the end user, empathising with them and fully understanding the problem you are looking to solve is key to delivering experiences that have meaningful impact.
Gathering research is key but what really matters is how you interpret and understand the material. So often in design we do the research but then use it just to validate our own ideas, I like to take research and analyse it fully to break open the issues and identify the opportunities.
Getting an idea or potential solution into the hands of the user is the most effective way to really understanding what works and what doesn’t. I try to get to building products or experiences as soon as possible so as to generate actionable insights and learnings from users early on.
The best way to assess the success of an idea or experience is to get real, meaningful feedback as early as possible, using that feedback to drive iterative change helps save resources and delivers more useful, more success products and services.
