A good UX has always been a key component of a good mobile app. The UX plays a major role in adoption and retention of an app. We have built apps focusing Healthcare, Financial, Small Business, Insurance, Manufacturing and construction Industries and this experience has taught us lesson about insights in user-experience which we want to share with all designers. The designers must keep in mind the below points to keep the product in right path.


1. Sell the idea with presentation


Design is not only doing great work with good ideas, itâs also about presenting your idea. If a designer cannot create and hold a presentation about his ideas, , It canât be sold. Presentation helps people to understand the value behind the product.

The Designer must keep in mind that we are not going to present for a common set of people; there might be a Product owner, VPâs, or even CEO but itâs our responsibility to show them and make them understand how we will help with our designs to improve their business.

Itâs not matter how long you spent in coming with great ideas; if you donât spend enough time to present the ideas, everything will be ruined since you canât sell ideas to people who canât understand the effectiveness of your idea.


So take a note of your thought process and pencil it down. Pick the best one for presentation and present it in a focused and concise manner.


2. Think from Userâs perspective


The designer does designing for business, but he must think from User perspective to build a great product. Design must tell a story and it should be told from user perspective to make people understand what value it brings to them and if they donât understand they will lose interest and bail out. The Designer must keep in mind that even though we design for businesses, the design is going to talk with the user and has to keep him engaged. So in order to achieve this, designer has to understand the business audience and start building from there.

3. Keep technical constraints in mind


Design is the key element to make a successful product. Since design is basic for User Experience, designer must have a technical mindset from start with some programming knowledge to accomplish a successful delivery.. Designer has to think about the resolution, icons, images required and the devices it will support.


Successful designers spend time in analysing apps in the market, UX recent trends and discuss with developers.


4. Sketch wireframes


Wireframe is blueprint of an app. Itâs a simple sketch that demonstrates how to arrange UI elements and user experience. It will give a structure of your page and layout of your content. You can easily determine the functionality while having a walk-through (wireframes). It will allow you to place user interface (UI) elements. By this you can achieve graphical representation for the product and thereby can get the feedback and do necessary changes before moving to development process.


5. Donât confuse your user


Too much of things will confuse the user; Take one point/element and focus to achieve it in every page/screen. Donât use too much of texts in screen as people are interested in scanning the images rather than reading text. Focus on adding visuals with the right text at right place.


6. Simplify the Process


All projects will have more functionalities; one should not try to complete it in a single step. We have to break it into pieces and do one at a time. Design one functionality, evaluate and go for the next one. Also try not to bring all features in the first version.List down all features, prioritize and launch the first version with core functions and then bring the next versions with e added functions. Make sure that every version adds value to the user and itâs scalable.


The above all will clear whatever question is in your mind regarding how to start with UI/UX and if you have any further queries you can reach out to us.
