Research concept: Once I commence on a new project I will ensure every thing is set back to the user’s actual needs. Each conceptual design is tested with the users, using a script and goals that I would set to highlight a hypothesis and requirement set by stakeholders. As the concepts move into design in the elaboration stage, the prototype is tested with users to ensure that the project is moving in the correct direction.
