The UI design process: overview
User interface design isn't just arranging stuff on a page. The most important part is investigating user needs and understanding your business requirements. That applies both to design projects and usability studies.
Here's what clients have said:
"This is our first product that looks like it was designed with the user in mind."
"What I like about this project is how quickly we got to an actionable set of tasks."

Business requirements: If you write a business requirements document, we'll actually read it. We'll also interview you and your staff to understand the business goals.
A Group Design Workshop is a great way to learn more about user and business requirements from a cross-section of your company. It's a brainstorming session with a twist.
Next, we start doing rapid prototyping to show you some UI concepts and then bring in a graphic designer to incorporate your brand and other visual images.
