Designing mobile and responsive experiences that delight our users and meet our organizational objectives isn’t easy, but it’s not impossible. User journeys can help. Understanding our users context is critical to the success of every app or responsive website. But more often than not, we jump right into discussing functionality and technical requirements without ever stopping to considering who our users are and what they need. While many of us seek out shiny new tools to prototype products, mapping the users’s journey is still the most reliable tool we can use to understand context and design mobile experiences that matter.
This talk covers:
-What journey mapping entails (and why it is an essential tool for designing effective mobile experiences)
-Practical tools and exercises you can use to understand user context and consider those insights in your app or responsive design
-Techniques for mapping user journeys with your team and applying what you’ve learned to build better user flows, features, interactions and interfaces
