‘Design’ is the blueprint of a plan for the development of a software system. It is necessary considering the aesthetic and functional dimensions of both the design object and design process. It involves considerable research, thought, modeling, interactive adjustment and re-design. Also, it is correspondent to the results of research and analysis that define the key features needed for the product.
THE DESIGN PRACTICE IN OUR COMPANY
We practice ‘Design Thinking’ as a concept for solving complex problems by creating new ideas. Also, it is an iterative approach to bring ‘Innovations’ into existence by combining multi-disciplinary teams in our company. The designers understand and observe the business requirements as the right design practice corresponding to the right product is needed for an effective design.
Firstly, the wireframes are created by the Designers to represent the product layout graphically. These ideations are direct interpretations of the Analysts’ requirements. Considering those prototypes as ‘standard’, they carve out prominent designs for the product. These modified designs are tested to check the compatibility with various devices available in the market for a productive demo.
Brief formulation of Design:
- As we start from the scratch, our designs emerge over time and are not defined up-front. Taking the advantage of new technologies, we evolve the designs fulfilling new requirements appropriately.
- Effective developers realize that each type of model has its strengths and weaknesses and therefore they apply the right model for the right job at hand.
- Designers code the models as there is a significant danger that the programmer will not understand the model or will miss some of its nuances.
- We never just assume that the Design works; instead obtain concrete feedback from the testers to determine if it does in fact work.
- We iterate forth and back on requirements, analysis, design, coding and testing to churn out an efficient and effective design.
- We emphasize on creating simple content, if the content is complicated the designers invest more time to design it simple.
- Finally, we focus on building systems rather than over-documenting the designs, understanding the thin line between under-documenting and over-documenting.
