I believe in following a human-centered design process throughout my work.
This involves considering the end user in all the steps
I take in a given project.
There are many diagrams out there that I find useful; however, I believe the steps
in any process should be flexible to adapt to a specific project and situation.
Considering all this, some steps that usually comprise my process include assessing
needs, performing research, coming up with ideas based off of research, translating
ideas into design, and testing the design with actual people.
An essential part of my process is iterating the design based off of insights revealed
in testing. Documentation throughout is ace, so I can easily communicate my steps &
thoughts to others.
