Our Design Processes
We believe the best processes are simple:
Determine the current state and goals to assess the needs of the customers, users, other stakeholders - and the business
Use divergent thinking to go wide with ideation techniques designed to facilitate what might delight our audience
Quickly distill what works and refine that until we have the perfect product/service fit
Build and validate along the way providing milestone approval check-ins with various fidelities, prototypes and smart code stacks, followed by CMS builds and development by top-notch teams we personally employ and manage
The result? People are more likely to view your organization in a positive way and repeatedly engage with and trust your brand.
Design Discovery is Key
At BrightLeaf, Design Discovery involves deep learning, problem solving, mapping current states, and considering preferred futures for the business, customers, and employees. The more efficient and thorough the discovery, the better the findings and solutions will be, reducing the overall risk of the design endeavor. This Design Discovery process is also known as Outcome Driven Innovation.
During Discovery, we cover the core tenets of business-savvy design:
- Customer Experience (CX). We study customer, employee, and user experiences (UX) and goals. These elements inform the Customer/User Requirements.
- Business Requirements Analysis. We gain an understanding of the direction of the business, including its mission, vision, differentiation, revenue sources, limitations, and growth plans. These elements inform the Business Requirements.
- Product Requirements Analysis. We review the products provided in terms of roadmaps, features, workflows, and releases. These elements inform the Product Requirements.
- Service Design Analysis. We study the choreography of users' interactive touchpoints within a system or service. By refining the design of the existing areas of service and designing new services, we solve problems and create positive outcomes for customers, employees, and organizations. These elements inform the Service Requirements.
