User Centred Design and Rapid Prototyping

Overview

User-Centred Design and User Research can help you transform the way your organisation designs products and services by better understanding your users and their needs. Anaeko can help your organisation realise your vision by working with you to capture and map user needs to user journeys and touchpoints across a product or service.

We create user centred designs through stakeholder and focus-group interviews and workshops. We use design thinking and ideation methods and tools such as various brainstorming techniques, rapid ideation jam-boards, 5-Whys?, idea affinity mapping, user empathy mapping, story boards, pitch boards, and many more. We tailor our approach to users and groups and current state of design evolution, whether starting from a one-line requirement or organising, elaborating, and prioritising existing well-formed ideas.

Our User Researchers, Analysts, UI/UX Designers and Engineers create and prioritise user stories through an iterative process, rapidly building wireframes and UI designs that incorporate user feedback to create a proof-of-concept (PoC)prototype.

Anaeko has teams with skills to move your products and services from Discovery phase to Alpha/Beta user-trials and to Live operation with Support. Our teams are experienced in the development of services, applications and integrations on public cloud, hybrid, on-premise and private cloud environments.
