The illustrations worked with the loud and fun character of the shouts. To give personality to the brand, we created a series of characters that reflected the fun, sociable and minimalistic side of FastJobs!
The center of our work in designing the app was simplifying the experience. We constantly wondered what was important for the users, and always arrived at two significant points: searching and applying suitable career opportunities.
We build data structures that were being used at that moment and improve native components for performance and usability. We performed into account all the elements necessary to achieve the best functioning without bothering users.
In the UI/UX design, there are many questions and consideration that can serve as good springboards of building user flow. What’s should be hidden/visible? What screens appeared and how it behave when it is closed?
The key considerations is to ensure the design helps the users understanding the multiple layers of content without having to think so hard. Sometimes people need to be guided how to consume the functionality for the first time. In the information testing, we should not just give our product and say, “Do whatever you want…” To early adopters. Instead we should keep observing how to can we enhance our product better to design smarter interactive experience.
Early communications will help us to identify the potential directions, information, and the next steps to create delightful and captivating experiences. In the creative industry, it’s often called “Reshaping Navigation Interactions.”
The Key Insight: Your brand goals, web usability, functionality, consistency, learnability, and user feedback. Interaction design shows us how to respond and generate a conversation with every user in the digital environment.
These days, I am learning a lot about design thinking because I can see different perspective by wearing many hats at once. I want to find the most effective ways to solve customer problem in real world. Learning design-thinking keep me updated with the latest trends to move forward, makes my personality factors such as confidence, initiative, and knowledge come into the play. It can be done relatively convenient to build prototype, as I keep educating myself during my spare time. I love combining what I’ve learned into real world.
Constantly asked myself, how my customers engages with my product, is it radiate value for users, is it communicate clearly enough, is it solve their pain problem? The most crucial part is how to gain people trust, be the quality problem solver, and convince people with creative strategy. From implementation, ideation, inspiration, and so on, I learn to understand a market-in approach and be updated with the latest technology to become an awesome designer.
