Design Review:

Design-review of layouts is a test of how well the design of a future application meets the requirements of the platform, will it be user-friendly, aesthetically pleasing, fulfill its functions, and most importantly — how correctly it can be built during development.
how to turn expectations into reality
If the product is managed from the very beginning to release by one company or a team of specialists who have experience in application development and are familiar with all the peculiarities of this process, a third-party design review is an optional step.
In what cases can you do without a design review?
When it’s worthwhile to do a design review:
The layouts were drawn by your in-house designer who has no experience in app development, or you used the services of a freelancer or design studio that does not deal with the full cycle of app development. In both cases, the design was created by an expert or a team of experts who may not know the specifics of mobile development.

Therefore, there is a high probability that the final version will not match the layout, or there will be costly obstacles in the process of writing code that prevent accurate results: unique elements created without understanding the nuances of mobile interfaces that do not comply with the guidelines can be very labor-intensive to make up, which leads to higher project costs.

What challenges developers may face in the absence of a design review:

All these flaws will either lead to new revisions on the layout, which can increase the development time, or bugs and gaps will be eliminated by the developers themselves, which may not comply with the guideline, break from the design style and subsequently mess up the user experience.
Not all states of elements are drawn
The requirements of iOS and Android platforms are not met
User scenarios are not fully developed
Proposed design solutions have high implementation complexity in code
Layout was created without grids, distances are set by eye
Interaction logic is broken
There is no design system: a set of rules, tools, and specifications for interface elements that will help reuse these components between different screens

How we conduct design reviews

We are interested not only in making the app look aesthetically pleasing and user-friendly, but also in enabling you to achieve your goals with it. Therefore, the design review includes the following stages:
You give us the layouts of the mobile application

Along with the layouts, we will need a description of the application's tasks and functions, as well as user behavior scenarios. This will help us understand how user-friendly the design is for the end users. 
Our experts carry out reviews

CleverPumpkin's design and development team scrutinizes the layout to ensure that the design is done correctly and that each element meets the project goals.

The layout review process includes analysis of the user interface, content, visual design, color scheme, etc.

We check all the layouts by checklist and conduct usability assessment to make sure that the application is really comfortable to use.
Prepare a list of what needs to be fixed

This list can range from minor adjustments, such as changing button colors or fonts, to more significant design changes that can affect the user experience.

These recommendations are formatted in such a way that any designer can understand what needs to be done and how to do it.
You fix the application layouts

Once you have received our recommendations, you pass them on to the designers who will make the changes. If any comments are required, we are always on call and ready to help you.
Вы передаёте нам макеты мобильного приложения

Вместе с макетами нам понадобится описание задач приложения и его функций, а также сценарии поведения пользователя. Это поможет нам понять, насколько дизайн удобен для конечных потребителей. 

Наши специалисты проводят ревью

Команда дизайнеров и разработчиков CleverPumpkin внимательно изучает макет, чтобы убедиться в том, что дизайн выполнен корректно и каждый элемент соответствует целям проекта.

Процесс проверки макетов включает в себя анализ пользовательского интерфейса, контента, визуального оформления, цветовой гаммы и т.д.

Все макеты проверяем по чек-листу и проводим оценку юзабилити, чтобы убедиться, что приложением действительно удобно пользоваться.

Готовим список того, что нужно исправить

Этот перечень может включать в себя как небольшие корректировки, такие как изменение цвета кнопок или шрифтов, так и более значительные изменения в дизайне, которые могут повлиять на пользовательский опыт.

Данные рекомендации оформляем таким способом, чтобы любой дизайнер понял, что и как нужно сделать.

Вы исправляете макеты приложения

Получив наши рекомендации, вы передаете их дизайнерам, которые внесут изменения. Если при этом потребуется какой-либо комментарий — мы всегда на связи и готовы вам помочь.
As a result of the design review, you will receive reasonable recommendations that will improve the quality of the future application, reduce the development time and increase the level of user satisfaction. The information obtained will allow you to make the necessary adjustments and, in the future, create a product that will be convenient, stylistically pleasing and successfully accomplish the tasks you set for it.
