Abhinav Paitandy

I’m currently leading the UI/UX projects at MapmyIndia, with about 5 years of experience in UI/UX design, across Media, IT, Outsourcing, e-commerce, and service domains.

Questions for Rahul:

1. You have worked in 3 different sectors, what did you learn in each, and how you applied it to your next workplace(limited to Design, leadership and management only!)2. How did you handle feature creep?
3. Often design efforts are overshadowed by business goals, what have you learnt from the industry and what would you teach us about it?
4. Between KISSMetrics, NPS and HEART, what do you prefer? Or all
5. Investing in design tools is often a big business decision, so how would you convince an excel loving boss to buy principle/sketch and/or a InVision/UXPin account?
6. What learnable changes did you see when applying NPS at Housing/Zo/Roposo?
7. Perfection/Packaging what do you recommend in terms of UX/UI? which has higher priority?
8. What are the key points and principles that you followed while building your design team?
9. UX Management: How would you recommend handling business goals at the cost of creating ux pit falls?
10. Case:
You have designed a Enterprise SAAS product, and have created a self-learnable on-boarding experience for the product users, which kinda creates a USP of the product. However due to cost over-runs the management decided to scrap the on-boarding related development time/cost resource.
Now,
A. What key features would you now add/remove to help the user? (Note: a user wiki is already present)
B. How would you use any Metrics like NPS, to pitch to the management, creation of a better user on-boarding experience? and how it will impact the ROI w.r.t to user training?

  • What role does analytics play in interaction design. How can we leverage on that?

Sanjiv Soni

I am an aspiring developer, 3rd year BTech CS and recently learning iOS App development.

I hope that after tomorrow’s work shop I will learn about making UI and UX better with some inputs from Mr. Rahul. I don’t have very specific questions because I am new to this field, therefore expecting to learn some new things like problem solving with design.

Aishna Ohri and Raveena Mathur

What all we want to learn at HelloDesign tomorrow?

Q.1 Ecommerce specific UI design- Right now through the site traffic we see products added to the cart. But, no checkouts. That is people are not willing to pay. Can it be a UI issue? How can the site kidzig.com be bettered from this perspective through UI?

Q.2 Our pipeline projects- App design and development. We want to create a brand specific design for our marketplace. So, from UI design perspective what or where are the key areas to do that?

3. I am their to gain an insight on the new trends in UI / UX as of now.

For Eg: Whatsapp succeeded and Skype failed for a simple reason that skype required a login while whatsapp was just touch and start chat.
