HCD process


This phase involved creating empathy. Design starts with people and we spent a lot of time understanding people, what they do, how they do it and what they feel when they are doing things. This involved a lot of observations, ethnographic research, job shadowing and creative ways of getting to know what people think and feel.



This phase involved redefining the problem, questioning long held assumptions, designing in meaning, ideating, prototyping, testing and continuously iterating. We focussed on creating human-driven experiences that not only solve problems but also inspire delight.



It does not matter how good a design is if its not built well. This phase focussed on synthesis and convergence, putting our best foot forward in terms of crafting and delivering a robust, highly involved and reliable product that carries the same emotions and humanity with which it was designed.
