The most successful companies understand how important it is to measure and analyze design data. It’s still common that result analyzes of design is considered less important than those of cost and earnings – even though they’re equally important for the profitability. Besides, many overestimate their understanding for the final client and create design based on their gut feeling, instead of substantial information. Today we have huge possibilities to gather feedback, measure, analyze and optimize. Make sure to make the most of the possibilities!
The total experience and function play a crucial role in what the receiver thinks about the service, product or brand.
That’s why it’s important to get thorough insights about the target group, to think through the whole user journey and to adapt the design based on what the needs are. The analysis show that only half of the participants did user research before coming up with their first idea.
The design thinking needs to be present in the whole company and it needs to be present throughout the whole work process. That way, it’s everyone’s responsibility, and it gets easier to keep an even and high level. You can also make the people in charge of the design, the people that create it or the people that are in contact with the design creators, sit at different locations at the company. Try to create an open culture where everyone can come up with ideas and the design talents can grow and evolve.
