Over the years of my freelance work as a website designer, I have noticed how ready build solutions, one for all tools like wordpress, joomla, templates and themes poorly preform in the real environment. Solutions build for everyone, that satisfy needs of none.
An unforgettable application must be easy to use and familiar, on the other hand it needs those special touches to really grab the user attention. Well thought out plan and design is the key to success in creation of any product.
UX (User Experience)
Very first step in creation of whatever kind of digital product, always should be UX (User Experience) analysis. User experience (UX) refers to any interaction a user has with a product or service. The goal of UX design is to create easy, efficient, relevant and all-round pleasant experiences for the user. In the age of the internet and smartphones, the usability of a website (and actual technical implementation), mobile app or piece of software will largely determine its success on the market.
The UX design is all about ensuring that every aspect of a user’s experience with the product happens without conscious and explicit intent. The UX design strategy can be divided into six key phases: understanding, researching, analysis, design, launch, and evaluation.
UI (User Interface)
After the UX analysis is done, the next step is to create or pick a design system for the website or application. These days each business should strive a consistent look and design across systems and services. A design system is a collection of visual components that be easily used to create most of the pages composition.
Development and execution is most of the time the easiest part, with good ux/ui execution, there should be nothing in way to create an application, except for picking the correct technology stack.
Different solutions and technology stacks require different delivery methods, choosing the right provider is always crucial to the business in long term in terms of costs and maintenance. AWS and Azure Services are usually my go to choice, but there are many other options available.
