My Design Process

Creates a Seamless Design Experience

Intentional Design Backed by Research

I begin a project by identifying the problem, and finding out the product or business requirements from stakeholders. Using information from my survey and competitive analysis, I begin to develop user flows, wireframes and prototypes, to form creative design solutions. To ensure a great and seamless user experience, I test the usability of my design by creating a functional prototype.

Beautiful and Unique Solutions

I begin to create a brand's story, focussing on how a customer should feel and what they should see, when interacting with the brand. Brainstorming, I create a mind map to visualize ideas and thoughts of the product. To show my ideas of a brand's development, I draw sketches to share with stakeholders. Establishing the brand's hierarchy and guidelines, I create a visual design system that applies to the logo, typography, button states, sizes and colors. To ensure success, I develop the brand's story with the customer at its core.

"I was impressed with Alisa's eye for design and her willingness to gather the feedback of others to further refine her work. I appreciated the simple surveys that she would make to gauge our feedback on the variations of a design she was working on. She demonstrated that she had a real interest in gaining some insight into what users would enjoy and find useful, rather than only creating something that looked pleasing to her. This is a quality that all great designers should have."
