How I work

 

During my education at the University of Applied Science in Schwaebisch Gmuend I learned to work in a very analytical and methodical  way on all my projects. Therefor some of the most important things to make use of are Design-Methods Here is a summary of some methods I use:

Personas      Stakeholder-Map      SWOT-Analysis      Questionnaires Brainstorming      Sketching     Wire-Framing     Affinity-Diagrams    Storyboarding     Paper-Prototyping     Click Dummies     Interviews     User-Tests    

 

Below I listed the general stages I go through while working on a design project 

 

Demand
I am walking through my surrounding with my eyes wide open, always looking and recognizing if there is a demand that could be solved by utilizing design and design methods.

Problem Definition
If there is a Problem, that should be or could be solved by the use of design, I define, analyse and communicate this problem.

Conception
After the problem is clearly defined, I start to work out a detailed concept. I visualize and develope a concepts in a structured way. On top my strength is to work in an interdisciplinary team and participate with the user.

Strategy
I start to build a strategy by doing a detailed research. While developing the strategy I am working in deep empathy with my target field – I always try to focus on the users needs. This contributes to my substantial and methodical way of working.

Implementation
All my implementations are aim-focused. The solution works didactical and semantical. The user is always in the center of my finished work.

Solution
The solution of my work should be functional, aesthetic, sustainable and contemporary.

Documentation
After the project is finished I am always working out a detailed documentation. My documentation are either printed-, digital-, photo- or video-documentation.
