Week 4 - Scope

Week 4 

Design Tenants

  1. We design with personas in mind. Mom Dad, Child 1, Ect. "Alexa, switch to my favorites!"

  2. Magic is possible. We like to make people say Wow!

  3. We infuse hope and excitement by including customers in on innovative Partnership programs with cool new foods companies!

  4. Feedback is our friend. Both good and bad. We fail fast and get back on track!

  5. Integration with other Brands and Services should work and instills confidence (API integrations)

  6. Cause our members to post their accomplishments and creations with family and friends!

  7. Security is a paramount, especially with kids in the home. Demonstrate we care about their privacy data within the UI.

  8. Feedback is our friend.

  9. Latency = Trust. Strive to be fast! Users should never wait for data requests. Latency erodes trust. (Search)

  10. Minimalism is our friend. Less is best. If the user didn’t ask for it. Remove it or think thoughtfully.

  11. Visual Scanning must to be easy on the eyes, high contrast, mature, and sophisticated.

  12. Design for prolonged use and long pauses. This will allow users to use the product longer, be more efficient, and learn new skills.

  13. Strive to be intuitive and answer questions before they are asked.
