UX Tools

In effort to facilitate design and align interdiscipinary team members, I've created a variety of tools that correspond with the user-centered design process.

User Persona

Unlike the personas sitting in your files somewhere, I've developed a living breathing user persona matrix that has actionable insights built-in.

Brand Attributes

Understanding how your customers or users percieve your company is attempting to create a brand. This exercise results in an interim brand statement.

Goals & Priorities

If we're going to exceed the needs of users to truly delight them, we'll need to prioritize our backlog based on their desires, and the ease at which we can develop the necessary features.

Roadmap

Unlike other roadmapping software, we use this spreadsheet to align marketing, engineering, and design efforts in parallel. This is a race to a marketing event where we launch a new product or feature.

Brief Canvas

Scoping out a project correctly only happens after interviewing stakeholders, team members, and customers or users. Only after auditing can we correctly prescribe a design solution. This brief canvas allows us to unpack our assumptions, and put them to the test.

Competitor Analysis

A common pitfall, is to want what our competitor has instead of differentiating. This competitor audit, shows us what we're up against, and shines a light on where our competition is headed. Allowing us to go in a completely different direction.

Slide Deck

If you have a slide deck presentation longer than 10 slides, you've probably tested someone's patience. Breaking presentations down into their most potent point is a specialty of this slide deck template framework.

Lean Assumptions

If we're not working on the biggest most riskiest and ambitious vision, then we're wasting our time. In this exercise, we come together with our assumptions to find out which one is the riskiest and most rewarding one to test first.
