Hold the Sprinkles

Summarize and organize

don't get caught designing something

summarize the user goal

what are they trying to accomplish?

what steps do they need to take?

What are supporting tasks?

what are the functional chunks?

mac and cheese has steps people go through to get their workflow done

think of all kinds of things a user may want to do to accomplish their goal

organize the functional chunks

who is this for?

what is their goal?

what are they trying to accomplish?

how does it fit into the workflow?

work out the workflow

i'm a perfectionist. I wind up forgetting important things because I'm too focused

design in layers

had to make cupcakes for mary

wanted to make the perfect cupcake

If we design all the way to the sprinkles, we run out of time and money

We make 1 perfect cupcake, and forget the rest :(

get something out first and iterate upon it

often we don't get to sprinkles because the sprinkles often don't matter

Some examples

logging in

start with username, password, and log in screen

facebook/google/twitter login?

added remember me so you don't have to do it over and over again

forgot my password (frosting or sprinkles?)

assigning admin

cheapest thing was putting in a name and making it admin

frosting: search

frosting: have a list of all

creating users

cake was have an import file and tell an error if there is an eror

frosting may be line by line

fix on the fly

Love the cake!

Frost with care!

won't turn down plain cake

but it'd be way nicer with frosting

Hold the sprinkles!
