DESIGN AND RESEARCH
Symbio’s research and design practice can then take your idea from concept to visual prototype, along the way providing you with valuable feedback which can help you to take your offering to the next level. Our research teams not only help you to define and refine your product, we can also define and refine your market. In the end, we can provide the talent, tools and systems to fully realize your vision.
Our teams take the original specification and are able to develop it into either a high or low fidelity prototype, which can then be used for user centered research. Leveraging our deep expertise in design, as well as partners in this space like Ideo and Cresense, we can flesh out your specifications, get them ready for market research, then help you perform that research, or perform that research for you and provide results.
HOW WE DO IT
Using a rapid application development methodology and tools, we can design and develop both high or low fidelity prototypes with ease. Using an agile approach, ensuring that all stakeholders, from end users to administrators to developers are involved in the design process, and design thinking, we create a virtuous circle, where we quickly develop a prototype, received immediate feedback, and then iterate on that prototype, improving the design every step of the way. Once the design is more or less complete in this way, we take the prototype to a wider audience and perform market research in order to gain more feedback.
They say that the big used to eat the small. Now the fast eat the slow. Our rapid application development methodology allows us to develop prototypes in a fraction of the time it takes to develop these prototypes in a traditional way. Additionally, we blend this approach with an agile methodology, bringing the end user and all other stakeholders into the process very early on, thus ensuring that requirements are met and exceeded as soon as possible.
