Mapping functionality to the user experience
We started by relating functionality to terminology, connecting the business case to the user experience. From here, we moved directly into a series of functional sketches to get the development track up and running before we fleshed out details like color and iconography. We then biult a series of screen templates, reusing whenever possible to reduce the development effort.
Designing for change
We took on this project just as iOS 7 had been announced. Despite having only seen Apple's screenshots, we prepared an application with a look and feel appropriate for the new operating system. With a changing foundation, thorough system documentation was paramount, and we created a set of guidelines that could easily be updated as necessary design changes were made.
