03 PAST IS STILL PRESENT 

FROM CERAMIC DESIGN TO UX/UI DESIGN

STEP 01

Choosing the right clay body
Choosing the right clay body for a project is an important step. It helps determine how functional your object will be.  

STEP 02

Design Decisions

What features does the product need?

i.e. Handle(s), spout, lid, feet, etc.

STEP 03

Prototype / User Testing

Once the prototype is ready to get it in the hands of some users, have them try it and record their feedback.

STEP 04

If it ain't broke, don't fix it.

 Design/usage will be far from perfect after first testing, Remake(if needed) hopefully, the design needs little or no tooling.

STEP 05

Finished Product

After another user testing and feedback, fire up the final product and release into the world. PRODUCE IT!

STEP 01​

Choosing the right platform

Choosing the right platform for your product is an important first step. Helping define how and where your product would be used.

STEP 02

Design Decisions
What features does the interface need?

Lists, search options, sharing, tracking, etc. 

STEP 03

Prototype / User Testing

Get it in the hands of some users, observe actions and record feedback.

STEP 04

If it ain't broke, don't fix it.

After first user testing and feedback, add on or take out elements based on the feedback of your testers. Hopefully, I get it right the second time.

STEP 05

Finished Product

After another user testing, if there is no new feedback or insights gained, the product is ready for the world. PRODUCE IT!

My past experience designing ceramic vessels that are intended for use has given me a design process that translates incredibly well into the UI/UX field. The steps in my process are practically the same, with only a change in the subject jargon used. This helps when designing so that I don't get ahead of myself with any one project, and can create a work schedule based on project deadlines.
