The user interface is what your user sees when they are using your application. When a user interacts with your application they expect it to be simple to use and allow them to complete tasks easily. At Caputo Design, we strive to design products for clients who want thoughtful, elegant solutions to their toughest problems. Every project has its own nuances, our design process is customized to fit the needs of each and every client.
All of our large scale projects follow a similar pattern. The process will vary based on your projects specific needs.
When creating a user interface it is important to set objectives and goals. This is how we set a strong foundation for your projects upcoming strategy and information architecture. During this stage, we help you identify a strategy to support user needs and your business goals. We will choose the best research method for your project based on time and resources available.
Like a building a house it is important to start with a blueprint of your application. Rather than starting the project showing any form of design (color, images, etc), we want to focus on how the interface will work and how the elements will be organized. Wireframing is the instance in which simple block diagrams are shown in order to illustrate exactly where specific elements in a user interface are placed, as well as demonstrating a solution’s functionality and intended layout.
The visual appeal of your product has an extensive impact on users. High-Fidelity Mockups are a “pixel perfect” representation of your product. During this stage you will see what exactly what your finished product will like. We spend countless hours breathing life into your wireframes by implementing the design into the function of the wireframes.
A non-functional prototype allows investors & team members to interact with your soon-to-be app. Using clickable hot spots, a prototype allows you to get a feel for your final product and the potential it may have. For startups, a prototype will help sell your sales deck when pitching to potential investors.
*This will vary based on your project type.
The front-end is what the user interacts with. During this stage, we take your High-Fidelity Mockups and code them to create the actual interface. Our experienced team will make sure the application looks and feels exactly like we have meticulously planned out in the previous stages. Using the latest technologies, we make sure the design comes to life in the application of your choosing.
Just like the blueprint we create for the design of the application, our development team will create development models to map out how the structure of your application will function. They will work with the front-end developers to create the actual application on a development server.
This is the final step of the project where our team makes sure the application is ready to launch. We will work together to find and fix any bugs or errors in order to get your application launched.
Our designs and code come with a 60-day warranty period that ensures you have enough time to discover any imperfection. We provide technical support and assistance during back-end integration to help make you completely worry-free.
