Design process

Optimal user experience for the end user

I use the Double Diamond framework for the design process.
  • Discover

    Understand the problem and investigate opportunities. Business and user goals, market research, desk research and information architecture.

  • Define

    With the insight from the discovery phase create the customer journey, personas, user story mapping, opportunities and possibilities, clarifying the problem.

  • Develop

    Creating solutions, iteration, information structure, wireframes, mockups (UI) and prototype (for user testing and validation).

  • Deliver

    Testing different solutions, rejecting those that will not work and improving the ones that will. Handoff development and further optimization based on insights (data and user feedback).

What others say about me

Thijs Creemers Software engineering at KPN

Working with Patrick is always a very pleasant experience. He works accurately, carefully and, despite his focus on details, he always manages to keep an overview in complex projects. After a short conversation, he is able to create a striking design that is almost always 'spot-on'. His eagerness to learn, following trends and cleverly applying new trends and techniques is second nature to him.
