User Experience and User Interface Design
Good design can sometimes be the beauty of artful creativity and other times the beauty of simplicity. We’ll get it just right, and in a way that supports your overall brand strategies. As a user interface design agency, we don’t just make your design functional, we make it beautiful and brand-supportive as well. In addition, we’ll provide user interface design style guidelines to you after you’ve approved the marked-up presentation layer. This allows all future application edits, tweaks, and changes can be applied with a consistent style.
We create smart, usable interfaces that deliver against your business goals. Our user-centered design approach may include:
- Information Architecture
- Process Design
- Visual Design
- Front-end coding
- Mobile App Design
We provide strategy, user interface design and rich internet application design for mission critical software applications.
Our specific areas of expertise are UI & application design for Financial Services, Software as a Service (SaaS), Biotechnology, and Sustainability. Since 1994 we have designed and developed more than 450 desktop, web, mobile and instrument control software applications with modular, reusuable UI for many of the world’s leading organizations.
Our approach to user interface design for online applications balances the importance of user-centered experience design with the complexity and practical needs and limitations of systems and technology.
User Interface Design Process
BijouMind Interactive’s process for developing an effective Interface Design is based on our experience in applying best practices from User-Centered and Task-Centered Design to real projects. After taking the time to understand your needs and your target users, we’ll figure out how to best fit our process into your project.
- Create user personas based on target users
- Develop persona based user mental model and reconcile that with product requirements
- Design user interface wire frames
- Test wire frames with user groups
- Iterate wire frames based on feedback
- Repeat steps 3-5 as needed
- Apply visual style to wire frame designs to create comps
- Iterate comps
- Create HTML & CSS based on approved comps
- Work with your team over time to respond and iterate your application based on user feedback and new requirements.
We will start the process by interviewing your end user to find out how they work, how they think, and what they expect. From there we can work with internal stakeholders to create wireframes, a style guide and visual mockups. If appropriate, we can create low to high fidelity prototypes for user testing. Alternatively, we can provide an in-depth evaluation of your current UI design to help improve the user experience on existing applications.
