We make the best use of our UX research and translate it into the optimal user experience

Great UX Design is grounded in great user research. The right research methods help us understand the audience your product is targeting, the psychology of your potential users, and how the dynamics of your user’s interaction with the interface. Leveraging years of research experience in China, our UX designers are trained to synthesize those meaningful data with your business goals to create enjoyable experiences that fit the complex Chinese ecosystem.

Our approaches draw the best elements of our research to deliver exceptional UX design output

We ensure that the visual structure and presentations of information on your digital products are intuitive and corresponds to the common Chinese users’ mindset. We provide visual outputs rather than a text report to help you across the UX design journey.

Personas are developed based on your users’ knowledge, attitudes, uses, and responses to your products and services. We then use these personas as hypothetical actors to test ideas & designs.

Empathy & Journey Maps are used for mapping out your users’ emotions, thinking, behavior along with your product experiences or services, we identify pain points and real moments that matter, and understand what pages are needed for your digital products.

User Flows are used to validate the series of steps a user takes to achieve a meaningful goal. It helps to identify the necessity of each step and logic of your products & services.

Information Architecture is the process of cataloging content and arranging it into a sitemap. It outlines what information will be on the products and how they will be organized, and the other purpose is to provide a scope for what wireframes are required.

Wireframes allow you to map out the functionality of the pages in low-fidelity to high-fidelity. We use wireframes iteratively to organize which content goes where without focusing on styles or aesthetics.

Prototyping helps visualize how users will experience the digital product before it is developed. Prototypes can be recycled into the testing with end-users to detect problems that can inform future design and development decisions.

Starting with UX research is certainly recommend. UXer research provides the foundation for the initial UX design work and also provides a way to validate the design direction. UX design output such as persona, journey maps, or wireframes, is designed based on the outcome of UX research.
