UI/UX 2

Design informs everything we do.

Now more than ever, your customers have access to established global marketplaces and brands that define the concept of good design. And they expect it both in the physical and digital worlds — whether at home or in the office. The bar has never been higher for your own products and services.

We believe that beyond appealing visuals, a good design process is about one thing — solving your most challenging problems, in the most efficient and simple way possible.

Our design team has the experience and track record you need to make your product stand out from the crowd. We’ve created literally hundreds of products, and apply hard-won learnings to every new project. Our goal is to deliver not just a product or solution that is expertly tailored to your customer’s needs, but one that delights at every turn.

Our design philosophy

Most agencies will tell you the design process they follow, the steps involved and the output produced. At Appworks, we take a different approach. We believe design is more than just a function. The core of our approach is to ensure at every step in the process, whether we are creating graphics or writing code, we are listening to the customer, continuously adjusting and iterating.

As a design-led agency, our cross-functional teams are structured to allow constant collaboration, beyond the hand-off phase of key deliverables. Even beyond the finished product, design can inform how you introduce a new product to the marketplace, and how you ultimately interact with your own customers.

Good design is about more than a gut feeling or a hunch. Beyond anecdotal examples or the loudest voice in the room, our design approach is rooted in rigorous research, combining both quantitative and qualitative inputs to achieve a holistic understanding of what your customer wants, even if they don’t know it yet!

Who knows your customer better than you? That’s why we apply a co-innovation approach to our design process that ensures the right voices are being heard, and problem statements are defined and re-defined based on fresh insights at any point in the process.

Our design approach

Our design process is battle-tested and proven, focused around understanding your customer’s needs through research and selecting and building the single most efficient solution based on a series of tested prototypes.

UI/UX 11

Discovery Phase

an agnostic approach

Many projects start off with a “cacophony” of varying requirements: different inputs from key stakeholders, a long list of customer pain points, and system complexities that can often mean critical data is hard to access or update. This is all healthy! Our discovery phase aims to uncover inputs and valuable insights, no matter where they come from, all without bias toward the final product.

Depending on the project, we may use design sprints to allow quick “paper” prototyping of a solution, based on a highly collaborative and intensive week-long process. As part of discovery, our experienced designers also use mind mapping, journey mapping, and persona creation to map out the most important use cases that ensure critical needs are expressed and addressed.

Research is also a key part of the discovery phase, and we use a number of approaches including user interviews, group brainstorming sessions, expert panels, surveys and data mining. Our goal is to layer these quantitative insights over an empathetic approach — always keeping the customer’s perspective paramount.

Conceptual Design

simple isn’t easy

We next work to focus the “noise” of the discovery phase into a single, realistic design approach. Based on the discovery phase, our process ensures decisions on product direction and focus are not made on assumptions, but carefully tested hypotheses. This is almost always an iterative process, working closely with the customer, to ensure not only that the most critical needs are being met, but that the proposed solution can actually be implemented.

As part of this process, we brainstorm and develop articulated ideas for the final product or solution. This includes initial sketches and wireframes, definition of data models, entity relationship schemes, and workflow diagrams. Our design team is expert in tools to accomplish this including Balsamiq, Axure, InVision, and Sketch.

Logical and Physical Design

it’s all about the details

Once the design approach is confirmed, we start to build it using Zepplin, Adobe Indesign, Illustrator, and Adobe XD. This is where the magic of UI comes into play, to ensure a consistent, simple and delightful experience. All of our designs are responsive by default, and work across devices from smartphone to tablet to desktop.

Our expert designers can either help you to create style guides and pattern libraries that communicate the unique feel of your brand, or we will use and help evolve existing guidelines to accommodate for new types of interactions.

We will also work with you to define the technology, including both hardware and software, to power your solution in order to ensure the design takes full advantage of the capabilities available.

Design Delivery

it doesn’t end here

Once we deliver full-fidelity designs for your product, the process doesn’t end there. Our designers are a full part of the product implementation team, working hand in hand with developers on the finished product to ensure accuracy, consistency and completeness.

Even after the product launch, we will work with you to define communication channels and feedback mechanisms from your end users, to ensure multiple opportunities exist for iterating on the initial vision — the very definition of polish.

Illustration Services

Custom graphics can often provide the edge you need to elevate your product above the competition’s, or to communicate a unique voice to your customers.

Our design team offers a full custom graphics and illustration service to create one-of-a-kind assets for use in your products, web sites, and even printed materials. We work closely with you to achieve the correct tone and visual style appropriate for your brand, and the assets are yours to keep and re-use anywhere!

WHEREAS Appworks and the Second Party (the "Parties") have an interest in participating in discussions wherein either Party might share information with the other that the disclosing Party considers to be proprietary and confidential to itself ("Confidential Information"); and

WHEREAS the Parties agree that Confidential Information of a Party might include, but not be limited to that Party's: (1) business plans, methods, and practices; (2) personnel, customers, and suppliers; (3) inventions, processes, methods, products, patent applications, and other proprietary rights; or (4) specifications, drawings, sketches, models, samples, tools, computer programs, technical information, or other related information;

NOW, THEREFORE, the Parties agree as follows:

  1. Either Party may disclose Confidential Information to the other Party in confidence provided that the disclosing Party identifies such information as proprietary and confidential either by marking it, in the case of written materials, or, in the case of information that is disclosed orally or written materials that are not marked, by notifying the other Party of the proprietary and confidential nature of the information, such notification to be done orally, by e-mail or written correspondence, or via other means of communication as might be appropriate.
  2. When informed of the proprietary and confidential nature of Confidential Information that has been disclosed by the other Party, the receiving Party ("Recipient") shall, for a period of three (3) years from the date of disclosure, refrain from disclosing such Confidential Information to any contractor or other third party without prior, written approval from the disclosing Party and shall protect such Confidential Information from inadvertent disclosure to a third party using the same care and diligence that the Recipient uses to protect its own proprietary and confidential information, but in no case less than reasonable care. The Recipient shall ensure that each of its employees, officers, directors, or agents who has access to Confidential Information disclosed under this Agreement is informed of its proprietary and confidential nature and is required to abide by the terms of this Agreement. The Recipient of Confidential Information disclosed under this Agreement shall promptly notify the disclosing Party of any disclosure of such Confidential Information in violation of this Agreement or of any subpoena or other legal process requiring production or disclosure of said Confidential Information.
  3.

The Recipient shall honor any request from the disclosing Party to promptly return or destroy all copies of Confidential Information disclosed under this Agreement and all notes related to such Confidential Information. The Parties agree that the disclosing Party will suffer irreparable injury if its Confidential Information is made public, released to a third party, or otherwise disclosed in breach of this Agreement and that the disclosing Party shall be entitled to obtain injunctive relief against a threatened breach or continuation of any such breach and, in the event of such breach, an award of actual and exemplary damages from any court of competent jurisdiction.
  4. The terms of this Agreement shall not be construed to limit either Party’s right to develop independently or acquire products without use of the other Party’s Confidential Information. The disclosing party acknowledges that the Recipient may currently or in the future be developing information internally, or receiving information from other parties, that is similar to the Confidential Information. Nothing in this Agreement will prohibit the Recipient from developing or having developed for it products, concepts, systems or techniques that are similar to or compete with the products, concepts, systems or techniques contemplated by or embodied in the Confidential Information provided that the Recipient does not violate any of its obligations under this Agreement in connection with such development.
  5. Notwithstanding the above, the Parties agree that information shall not be deemed Confidential Information and the Recipient shall have no obligation to hold in confidence such information, where such information:
    • (a) Is already known to the Recipient, having been disclosed to the Recipient by a third party without such third party having an obligation of confidentiality to the disclosing Party; or
    • (b) Is or becomes publicly known through no wrongful act of the Recipient, its employees, officers, directors, or agents; or
    • (c) Is independently developed by the Recipient without reference to any Confidential Information disclosed hereunder; or
