Working through various user flows
It was important that we had an alignment between the expectations of our stakeholders and the capabilities of the development team. This often required numerous iterations of screens based on specific models of the wearble device being used with the app or tracking being done purely on the phone itself. As we worked with the team in an agile manner, we made sure to stay a sprint (or two) ahead of their development efforts.
The tiny details matter
The client paid extremely close attention to the tiniest details of the design, often asking for precision down to the pixel. This was often easy enough to achieve in our design, but required a very close relationship with our development team.
Through communication and collaboration, we worked with our team to clarify any design quality gaps. This required continual testing of the app on an unfamiliar platform with both our internal team members and the project stakeholders. I took it upon myself to do some specific user testing around the profile creation process to make sure that we were hitting the marks in terms of the flow and interaction patterns.
