Ask a lot of questions! Gain knowledge of context, users, & business goals. Research competitive products & conduct interviews. Identify objective & conceptualize. Gather data and collaborate to synthesize. Get them post-its notes ready!
Create user flows to help gather a holistic understanding of the user experience. Wireframe for constant feedback & quick reiterations. This helps save the business money by preventing revisions in the latter half of the product cycle!
Develop paper prototypes and/or hi-fidelity mockups (InVision, Axure, Balsamiq) will help identify any blindspots or interactions that the user missed. Evaluate design with stakeholders and gather feedback from usability testing.
Complete final design and prepare the deliverables for all stakeholders. But, the work isn't finished yet. The whole product experience starts here and will only benefit from constant feedback and making improvements.
