Process

Need help?

I assist companies with design, development and maintenance of digital products. This is how I do it.



I ask questions – Senior UX Designer in Oslo, Norway – Axel Ferdinand Giæver – Prototypen
Research & Analysis

I ask questions

You can't build a great product unless you know your audience. A project should never start without doing proper research.

  • What are the user needs?

  • What are the business goals?

  • Which technology can we use?

It’s in the intersection of these the real business is located. I’m able to locate that intersection.

Concept Development & Strategy

I conceptualize

With insight from the strategy, the brand, the users and the content I’m designing for, I explore various means and choose a direction for the design process. A great concept responds not only to discoveries in the analysis, but also contains elements of innovation. I can help with that.

Design & Prototyping

I design & code

In my opinion, a digital design process without deep code understanding, lead to poor, expensive and not very user-friendly solutions.

Sketches alone can never cover all the complex interactions of a digital product.

With design tools such as Adobe XD, front-end code, or just pen and paper (usually a combination of the three), I bring concepts to life, and test them on real users throughout the design process. I guess that's what they call prototyping.

Usertesting

I iterate

Digital products may be delivered, but they are never complete. To make a product stand out, I believe you have to continuously iterate on it by testing the product on real users, track the usage and gather customer feedback. Try. Fail. Do it again.

The result?

Great UX!

But let's face it. Great work won't generate great results if you do all the work on your own. The greatest digital products are built by talented people working together in interdisciplinary teams.

I believe in teamwork – not a one man show.
