    Apiko Business Analyst conducts direct, so-called ping-pong communication with you to picture the business logic and define the scope of work.

    Iteration #2 Wireframes & Prototyping

    Apiko UI/UX Designer and Business Analyst work together on your product wireframes. Wireframing allows

    • to define the hierarchy of your product’s navigation and design, which makes it visually easier to plan out how you’d like
      your information represented
    • to pay attention to User Experience features
    • to figure out what web pages and functionality should be reproduced in brand new design and what functionality
      should be completely reconsidered
    The result of concept development stage
    • Fully-developed business logic, value proposition
    • A package of wireframes
    • A list of project requirements
    Approximate time: from 40 hours

    Iteration #3 Brand identity

    When the business logic and wireframes are delivered, Apiko UI/UX designer starts working on your brand identity.
    We design your logo and color scheme, and icons - everything to express your business idea and message to your customers.

    Iteration #4 UX design

    We conduct various UX methods and techniques to provide your customers with a clear vision of your product and its usage simplicity.

    Iteration #5 UI design

    We design user interface for your web and mobile application. We do our best to adopt simplicity, intuitiveness into your app that is based on your existing analytics data like conversion rate, app pages analysis.

      that will be ready for next development stage

    After a circumspect product concept has been developed, the technology stack is defined, our Technical Team builds your website or mobile application architecture. The process of development is usually divided into milestones (2-week sprints). The Stakeholder will be provided with the time tracking reports to check out the productivity of each team member.

    Speaking of communication: Apiko Tech Team holds daily scrum meetings, the Stakeholder joins the meeting at their desire; also the Tech Team holds Demo Calls on every milestone and delivered values.
    The Stakeholder will be provided with the time tracking reports to check out the productivity of each team member.
