Connecting the dots
Crafting meaningful experiences depends on connecting the dots for users. Meeting users in their environment and learning about their needs, values, and aspirations helps to inform thoughtful research. Designers can then craft experiences that will resonate with them.
Engaging end users
The best way to ensure the success of a design is to prototype it and test it. Following this philosophy, I approach the design of experiences as an exercise in iteration. By putting together low-fidelity early mockups of potential designs and testing them with end users, these designs can be refined and improved on the road to a final solution.
