What if you need to design your app for both the iPhone and Android? You will very quickly learn that you cannot just cut and paste your design from one platform to the other. Android and iOS frameworks share some basic principles, but when it comes to design, they are as different as ebony and ivory.

For instance, the notification bars in iOS and Android may look similar, but they perform different functions on each platform.

Formerly we primarily worked using the Waterfall project methodology, so we had to adjust our workflow. Gradually we have developed an effective way of working for interaction and visual designers within Scrum projects.

Designers and developers in the DDH research team work on a number of projects with diverse design and development requirements but in terms of UI design we often find we have similar problems we need to solve. For example, these might include designing tools for surfacing content such as search and browse mechanisms, ways to facilitate collaborative editing of images or documents or managing a user’s workflow.
