Test your design early and frequent. 👩🔬👨🔬 When you test your design with real users, you’re not blinded by assumptions as you continue down your journey of creating a product. Testing helps you navigate through a whirlwind of ideas for features, assisting your concentration on what’s essential to the experience.
It’s good to know, however, what your user is asking for is possibly different to what they mean — rather than taking your findings quite literal, think of an alternate practice by reading between the lines; “it would help if there was a button there” could be synthesised as “I need a better way to get where I need to go”.
User testing is what pivots your product from “looking good” to “super useful, and it looks great” so it’s important to use your time carefully and ask the right questions.
When I host user testing sessions I follow a simple map that helps structure the data the can inform my decisions that I’ll be sharing later 👌🔥
