The next step would be to make contact with the people. Speak with them over the phone, set up meetings to see how passionate they are. Let them know what you want and whether they are capable of your work.

Discussion
Final-Decision

The final step is to compare the responses you have received and make your decision. And there it is, the easy way to choose the graphic design company for you.

At the end of the day, the most important part would be to build a relationship with whomever you choose for your project. That is the only way for you to be able to not only do your project well, but also be satisfied with it at the end of the day.


Steps to Follow When Designing a Mobile App

” Mobile Apps are the trend of the day for today’s generation. We have gotten used to having an app for everything and each day there are more and more things that we need apps for and more and this gives birth to more ideas for mobile apps. “

As complicated as people might think the process is, it can be very easily broken down into simple steps. Mind you though, in no way are we saying that building a mobile app is an easy task, just that the process is nothing to be scared of and giving up on.

Idea

” The first and most important part of creating a mobile app is the idea or sometimes the problem that you are going to solve through your app. “

The-need

“The second step in creating your mobile app is making sure that you need an app for your idea. If you end up making one and it isn’t that useful, then your efforts will have gone to waste.”

Flow-and-features-of-the-app

” The next step is to plan the way the app will flow and how the users will use it. Along with this, you need to make a list of all the features that your app will have. This allows you to get a clear idea of how your app is going to work. You can always do that little bit extra and do this using a wire framing tool. “

Non-core-features

” Another important thing to do is remove everything unnecessary from your first version. All the extra work that you do, save it for your subsequent versions. Rather, in the first one, keep it simple and straightforward. “

Design

” Make sure that you always put the design first. Remember that your design is about how your app will look and how everyone who uses it will experience. Your design is the way you make your app useful! “

Developing-the-app

” In this step, you need to start coding your app. If you’re not well-versed in the subject then go ahead and hire someone who is. “

Analytics

” Next up, do all the analytics; track downloads, user engagement, retention capacity. There are a lot of tools and apps available for this (Flurry, Localytics). Make use of them. “

Feedback

” Before you take your app live, get feedback from random users, friends etc. Service providers like Apptentive helps you with gathering a user group and getting their feedback. This will help you make your app better. “

Features-and-additions

” The final step is to now make your first version of your app better. Now’s your chance to introduce all the new features that you dreamed and planned about. “

The Basics of UI/ UX

We love UI/UX. We make a living out of it. We are thinking, speaking and doing it every day at office.

123

We can go as deep and as technical into this as anyone can. But we don’t want to. Instead, we are going to talk about the bare minimum of UI/UX. Something that gives you a heads up on the topic. Something that helps you to follow a conversation and maybe even participate in it. Because everything these days is UI/UX.

So here’s the deal, UX is User Experience Design and UI is User Interface Design.

We’ve all looked at an app or a website at some point and felt how amazing it looks. We thought it was aesthetically appealing or that it was well structured, usable, easy to understand or something like that. UI and UX is the process that went on behind creating that app or website.

Basically, UX is about enhancing customer experience and satisfaction.

It improves usability, overall aesthetis and provides satisfaction in the relationship between a product and the user.  UI, on the other hand, deals with the interaction between the machine and the user. It aims at providing effective operation and control of the machine by the user.

To break it down further, UX deals with the experience that people have on the website or mobile app. It deals with where everything is placed, how it looks and how it is designed. At the same time, on a website or a mobile app, there is always a flow that exists. An e-shopping app or we site will lead you to your basket after you choose a product and then on to your payment page. UI deals with this flow that needs to exist.

 

So it is clear that there exists a difference between the two. But more often than not, it is very easy to get confused.

The Truth behind a Graphic Design Company

Graphic Designing is a very common term these days. All of us have one opinion or the other about the craft and the companies that claim to specialize in it. But, at the end of the day, not many of us know exactly what graphic designing companies do.

 

Theoretically, Graphic designing is the ‘process of visual communication and problem-solving through the use of typography, space, image and colour.’ This sentence by itself is not that explanative. To be very clear, graphic designing is that process that goes on behind creating something visual, which will either conveys a message or represents an answer! The process as such is what happens when someone creates a logo, an image, a sign and even advertisements or billboards.

Sometimes the design itself is the message.

You can date back graphic designing to the Rock Age and the Stone Age when men drew on the walls of caves. And those cave drawing have today developed to become the 3-dimensional games we see today. And this is one field whose growth, popularity and importance will not stop any time soon!
It is easy to assumed that graphic designing companies simply bring this process to life. But that isn’t the case.

 

Work at a graphic designing company starts way before the actual designing commences. As soon as the client gives them the brief, the company gets the necessary information regarding the idea that the client has for the final product. Right from that moment, the company starts work attempting to create the best possible outcome, while making sure the time frame is adhered to and all the restrictions and requirements fulfilled.

In this complicated process, a designer or the company as a whole can and most often does come to face several problems and discrepancies. Through it all, it is the responsibility of the company to make sure that the outcome is its’ best version irrespective of individual’s preferences or liking.

It might sound easy to do, but it is not. At the end of the day, if you have that love for the art, that passion towards making a simple line or an image into a breath-taking logo, or a humongous, head-turning billboard then the work itself becomes the reward.
