Small is good. We love small products. Why not small processes?
Mobile phones used to be big and bulky. Then we found ways to make them smaller and pack more stuff into them. Now we walk around with multi-purpose computers in our pockets. And guess what? We use them more than ever for things we never imagined we could do.
What if we did that same thing for our UX processes? What if we could “smallify” important artifacts to make them easier to carry around? Would we use them more for things we can’t imagine?
In this week’s UIEtips, I talk about the Short-Form Creative Brief – a compact design artifact we found in use by a team we’ve been working with. This tiny little document, which is small enough to carry around and pull out when needed, has changed how the team creates designs. It can change your life too.
