Does your brand focus on Human-Centered Design?

Everyone are now using a mobile app or website interface to shop for their favorite brands instead of visiting a physical store. Do you think if a brand hires a team of top designers and developers it can guarantee improved sales or a quickly gain a new customer base? Not really! 

Even state of the art design cannot improve business or ensure profits. The golden rule of design thinking emphasizes that people must be a part of the designing process so that the problem addressed and the solution offered revolves around humans.

The reason most brands fail is their far off endeavor to meet their business goal without considering the human perspective. Rather than focusing solely on product quality, a brand must understand how the experience process can be simplified via Human-centered design. The gravity of the current situation, where cutthroat competition is real, a brand must focus more on the design problem and then highlight a solution.

The best way to understand this concept is by considering an example.

Problem: A cosmetic brand trying to sell products virtually.

Solution: Brands like Sephora and Maybelline are perfectly capable of hiring the best web and mobile app developers to put together a fancy website or a mobile app. But will that solve their purpose? Certainly not. A human-centered design would make a brand include people in the design process by helping them try the makeup virtually via mobile or website interface.

Takeaway: The brands must be able to figure out the difficulty by using people’s first approach make sure they are part of their design solution.

What A Human-Centered Design Looks Like?

The brands must innovate for people to find logic to support their human centered design. Following are our experience about a human-centered design:

  • Display the most enquired product or service at the top and least popular at last.
  • A human-centered design gives the user a feel-good factor or helps them revitalize the notion of making a purchase. Try including small messages of appreciation or using a smiley indicating a user has made a great choice. This shall increase engagement.
  • Minimalistic design with only limited features onboard is a true winner. A user may avoid a loud website where navigation and endless features are masking the product he is searching for.
  • Easy to use application with minimum challenges. Don’t overwhelm the users by asking for unnecessary details or fill up forms and leave review and rating every 10 secs.
  • An adaptive interface for special cases such as visually impaired users. Out-of-the-box thinking can be a show-stealer. It shows you care for all in your customer base.

Best Ways to Execute Human-Centered Designs

 

There are three exemplary ways in which a brand can include humans in the design process:

        1. Focus groups:

 In this approach, the brand takes note of user reaction. A focus group will identify how a customer is engaging with product packaging, design, pricing, and application. Some important ways to note these elements are by ‘checking the number of times a user visits a product page’, ‘wish list’ it, ‘recommend it to friends by sharing a link’, or ‘leaving a review after usage’.

 

     2. Questionnaire and survey:

You can send questionnaires and survey forms to new users and existing base and ask a series of target questions. This is a great way to include humans because they are voluntarily suggesting the changes they need or what feature of the brand they like the most. It’s more like a verbal confession coming directly to you. Use this approach to define your target audience.

 

   3. Prototyping: 

This is the most practical way of getting a response by using minimum resources. You can put an idea into running by developing a prototype and introducing it to a small target group. In such a case, you can get a quick response, and based on the feedback; you can decide whether to go ahead or not. By developing prototypes, you can engage users into telling you the challenges they faced and the flaws in the design if any.
