I have a question regarding interviews related to Interaction Design position. When you are asked to design or redesign a design problem, obviously there is no ime to do user study. So, how do we have to find the user requiremens for the given problem.
Can we say that for this problem due to less time I would like to do a scenario based design (Incorporating Personas , scenatios) and then comeup with assumptions that will work for my persona. Then say during lack of time reasoning throgh assumptions will help us find the strength and weekness of a product. However, I will do a user, usability study to test my assumptions.
How do we handle this
Also, given a problem, I would start describing the solution with my research plan for the problem which is
undersand the purpose of the product
Understand cusomer goals
Persona, Scenaris, storyboard
designing the information space
design alternative soluion
Brainstorm design, perform stakeholder analysis
Address design issues and redesign
Write detailed Spec
I then plan to explain each part and ask questions and design.
Is this a nice way of explaing solution to interviewers.
What is good abt this and what are we lacking
Sorry, for the long email, Any information will help lot of people on the list here.
