The Best UX for Web Apps
A good UX design is going to account for all digital platforms, smartphones, tablets, and PCs. Web Apps are no longer just desktop functional, they are responsive or progressive and built to be accessed on all the platforms.
The best web app is going to take advantage of both the deeper technologies and storage capabilities of a desktop or laptop computer, or server, and the speed and convenience of a smartphone or tablet.
Designial has the background to build an expert-based team, in all responsive areas, including desktop and mobile.

The Web App UX Design Process
We start by understanding your business challenges. We sit down with your executive team, users, employees, customers, engineers, product managers, and other stakeholders to understand the challenges you face that need to be resolved with a web app. We also like to understand which hardware or devices, phones, tablets, PC/Mac, or larger screens, you want to target and why.
Based on what we heard during the discovery stage, we can recommend a responsive or progressive web app might be a good fit. We then start by creating a UX strategy that reflects the needs of your business and your primary customers or users. UX strategy helps define details on the following-
• Business problems and their prioritization
• Differentiators compared to the competition
• How do we measure success
• Who the users are vs. customers
• Benefits/motivations for them
• Hypotheses and riskiest assumptions
We begin by recruiting roughly seven of your primary users to discover their needs. Whether they are employees or customers, we map out their user journeys. UX research enables you to understand user behavior in their natural environment. By understanding user behavior, you can design your product that helps users and businesses achieve their goals. Different methods are used based on what findings are relevant for the business outcome.
A wireframe is a grayscale representation of a product. During this stage of the design process, the focus is on the layout, screen elements, and how users will interact with them that is inline with platform (iOS/Android/Web) interaction standards. At this time, we intentionally keep out colors, fonts, and other aesthetic aspects of design.
This stage is the branding stage of the product design. Use either existing brand guidelines or define new guidelines. During this stage, the focus is on colors, fonts, and other aesthetic aspects to achieve optimal visual hierarchy. The purpose is to present information in a way that users can easily find what they are looking for to achieve their goals.
From our experience, handoff between the design and engineering team isn't always easy. If needed, our team oversees and supports the implementation of our UX design strategy. We work alongside your development team to ensure UX strategy implementation meets your goals and business objectives.
