UX and UI play a crucial role in the whole utilization of the application and what experience it offers to its users.
Developers and designers have to work cohesively to ensure efficient application design, development, and deployment strategies to deliver the application within the time frame, without compromising on the User Experience (UX) and User Interface (UI).
Developers need to constantly communicate with designers to ensure their application development and delivery does not get hampered because of delays in the UX and UI. Here are a few ways that programmers and designers can work collaboratively to deliver an application within the implementation timeframe without compromising on the user interface or the user experience:
Developers need to have everything they require
A few designers consider their work completed once they have submitted the UI source files to the programmers. However, it is not an effective strategy because coders and UX/UI designers need to have real-time interaction beyond UI source file submissions to streamline the application development process.
The UX and UI of the application, website, and software will get hampered if the designers submit incomplete, unorganized, or undocumented files to the developers. Coders should set clear expectations with the designers and instruct them to place every UI element in a unified asset.
This asset should have all explanations of how each component behaves in every user behavior or circumstance. Developers should have all the required assets they need for UI, like photos, illustrations, SVGs, and videos, to save them substantial time in the application development stages.
Motion graphics and animation are significant aspects of modern applications, tools, and software. Programmers and designers can collaborate on how to enhance the user experience and user interface to streamline the job of the end users. Following a same-name convention throughout the UX/UI design and application development process will help the teams to organize the design assets to make it easier to navigate through the files.
Keep the designers in the loop during the application development
Coders that want to deliver applications or software before the delivery timeframe without compromising on the user experience and user interface need to collaborate with UX/UI designers from the start of the development phase.
Moreover, it is crucial not to approve any changes in the development changes without running it through the designers. Implementing an effective feedback structure to innovate and implement strategic changes to enhance the UX and UI.
Leverage project management tools
UX designers think it’s easy for developers to offer a scalable UI. However, it is not correct, because a good application development with an effective UI/UX needs time and effort. Leveraging a project management tool will help programmers and designers to streamline their collaboration, monitor the project development process with vigilance, and deliver the results before the application delivery timeframe.
There are many project management tools available in the market that has different capabilities to enhance the entire application design and development processes to deliver the code within the time frame.
