Product Design & Development
Organisations are increasingly reliant on digital products and platforms to solve a wide range of business problems. These can be as simple as seeking to improve customer engagement or retention, increasing sales and revenue, or reducing costs and improving organisational efficiency. More complex executions can involve launching an entirely new product or service, pursuing a competitive advantage, or seeking to enter new markets.
Our Product Design Services
Market & competitor research
This is about understanding the needs of the target market, as well as the strengths and weaknesses of the competition. This information is used to inform the design of the product.
Technical feasibility assessments
This involves determining whether the product is technically feasible to develop. This includes considering factors such as the required technology, the budget, and the timeline.
Mockups & prototyping
This is done using wireframes, mock-ups, or prototypes to create visual representations of the product. These are then used to test the usability of the product and to get feedback from users.
Testing the product with potential users is critical in order to get feedback on its usability, functionality, and design; and to ensure that the product meets the needs of the target market.
This is the process of building the product based on the design specifications. This includes coding, testing, and deployment.
Why Codex for Digital Product Design & Development?
Codex’s approach to digital product design and development is grounded in the following four principles:
Discovery is Key
Our user-centred, hypothesis-driven Discovery methodology uses data and insights to inform the design and development process.
This means collecting data about the user, the market, and the competition, and using that data to make informed decisions about the product and its road map.
Codex places the user at the centre of the design process, which means ensuring that we understand the user’s needs and goals but also their underlying motivations, and then thoughtfully designing a product that meets those needs.
Our agile development methodology allows for iterative development and continuous improvement, which means that the product is constantly being tested and refined.
We work closely with our clients throughout the entire discovery, design and development process. This approach ensures no surprises, and that the final product meets the client’s and their customers’ needs, and aligns with their business goals.
The benefits of working with Codex to design, deliver and launch your digital product, include: access to our extensive knowledge, skills and experience in digital product design and development; a collaborative, human-centred process that ensures the product meets the needs of its users, and extensive testing and continuous improvement of the product to ensure it delivers on the product vision.
Product Design & Development FAQs
Do I need to do Discovery before designing and developing a product?
Yes, it is essential to do discovery before designing and developing a product. Discovery is the process of understanding the problem that the product is trying to solve, the needs of the users, and the feasibility of the product. By doing discovery, you can avoid costly mistakes and ensure that the product is successful.
Discovery typically involves the following steps:
- Define the problem: What is the problem that the product is trying to solve?
- Understand the users: Who are the users of the product? What are their needs and wants?
- Assess the feasibility: Is the product technically feasible? Is it economically feasible?
- Define the requirements: What are the requirements for the product?
