The Litehouse Approach to Design Thinking

Design Thinking is about taking a human-centered and iterative approach to problem solving and innovation. As this approach employs an iterative methodology to explore all the possibilities of tackling a challenge, it requires teams to have the ability to be intuitive, to recognize patterns and to construct ideas that have an emotional meaning as well as functionality.

At Litehouse, we employ the Design Thinking approach – discover, understand, design, iterate and implement – to deliver meaningful and memorable customer experiences.

Project Jacquard is literally weaving together fabric and technology

I am all excited to hear about Google’s Project Jacquard. The company has intelligently partnered with textile experts like Levis to weave interactive fabric! The conducive yarn (yes, that’s what it’s called!) or a sensor grid can be woven into textiles to create a large interactive surface. It can then perform functions like answer a call, play music or control a device by the swipe of a sleeve.

InVision: A disruptive tool in prototyping

For design teams spread across the globe, it can be challenging to maintain prototype versions and keep track of who has contributed what. Fortunately there are many prototyping tools available purporting to help with this daunting task. There is a wide range of tools available. So, be cautious of what prototyping tool you choose. Some prototyping tools offer too many features and capabilities, while others don’t offer enough. At Litehouse, when it comes to delivering the prototype to the client, InVision is the tool of choice. There are multiple ways to share a prototype including a URL, email, SMS, embedding, or file transfer. There is a comment mode with various categories such as: everyone, collaborators and developer notes. This mechanism is a powerful feature giving ‘Feedback’ its due importance.

Why is Responsive Web Design so important?

Responsive web design enables optimal website viewing and interaction experience across different devices, without having to create and design different versions of a website depending on the device screen-size and platform. Research suggests that in the year 2015, 85 percent of web users believe a company’s mobile website should be just as good as or better than their desktop site. This means that all businesses should ensure that their websites are compatible with these devices.
