Process Book

Ongoing project

Throughout my work, I’ve found how integral and important being consistent in my process is; each step of my process lends itself to better insights, idea generation, prototyping, and more. During my Creative Residency, I wanted that process; a process I find to be helpful, insightful, and meaningful; to be open and accessible to those interested in getting started in UX design.

This notebook gives new interaction designers tricks, tips, and tools for honing their human-centered UX process. They have been given out at my talks and events (including Adobe MAX and Seattle Interactive conference).

Initial Notebook Overview

Each of the ten pages has a step of my design process, starting with secondary research and ending with high-fidelity prototyping, with quick tips and tricks for each section. The idea here is to generate questions and thoughts for the designer to consider at every stage of the process, while giving them open notebook space to ideate, draw, and write. 

Initial Notebook Content

Below is a short teaser of the content found in the books. If you are interested in seeing a book for yourself or getting the PDF, shoot me an email at natrlew@gmail.com!

Secondary Research
First thing’s first: define your space! If you’re passionate about climate change, do a little digging: what’s already out there? What solutions have already been done, and how have people received those solutions? What’s missing? Dig deeper than you think you need to- there’s always more to find out.

Tips for Secondary Research:
- Trust your sources you know are credible. Consider how you already know if these sources are credible. If you’re not sure, how can you figure it out?
- Consider how your biases might affect what your search queries look like. How can you use language that is open-ended in search queries?

Version 2 

Coming soon! Version 2 of these notebooks will be a three notebook series - for understanding, ideation, and prototyping.
