Future focused digital product design

How Furthermore can help with your digital product design project
Furthermore are a digital product design agency. Our team includes researchers, strategists, product designers, and prototypers who leverage design thinking principles and agile methodologies to drive transformative changes for organisations worldwide. At the core of our product design approach is a commitment to experimentation.Together, we craft exceptional digital product experiences by improving systems, communication channels, and both physical and digital interfaces. No two projects are ever the same, so our typical process involves curating a package of tried and tested methods for each project.  

It starts with product strategy
Whether you’re embarking on the development of a new product or improving an existing one, we recommend starting with a discovery phase. The collaborative discovery phase of a project can vary in length and effort depending on requirements and the maturity of the product, but typically a discovery phase will aim to answer some of the following:

User research is key
Organisations are at times guilty of creating products and features without any idea whether their customers actually want them. Occasionally this may work out and a product design team might make an assumption that pays off, but more often than not it will result in months of work for something that was never needed in the first place.Reducing that risk is fairly simple, and it doesn’t even have to be a large costly research study either. Just speaking to a few users is better than none at all. Conducting user interviews at the outset of discovery, showing early concepts to a representative sample of your audience, putting a prototype online to test a few flows, are all easy ways to validate your assumptions, minimise risk, and ensure future success.

Journeys that engage 
Every digital product contains journeys the users must take in order to solve their needs, whether it's the onboarding flow of a new app or the gamification techniques to encourage engagement. We pride ourselves on understanding, optimising and monitoring your user’s critical journeys through your product. Making every experience not only as seamless as possible but also a delight for your audience.

Design system
Once a high-level look and feel has been developed, we turn this into a robust and flexible design system, which will ensure consistent and appropriate management of brand reputation throughout every aspect of execution. This approach simplifies workflow and processes, allowing designers, developers, marketers and others to work in an efficient manner, and will mean that all future work will adhere to high standards of both visual design and usability. We can also provide training and coaching to support this.The design system would encompass all visual artefacts, and will be presented in a digital styleguide. The core brand identity (colours, fonts and logos) will be optimised for digital use, and we will develop a toolkit of UI patterns, icons, button styles, modules and components that are specific to your organisation.
