    What is UX Research?

    The field of UX Research helps to unearth the conscious and subconscious behavior of people that make them like/ dislike a product. Hence, in order to understand the myriad experiences, emotions, thoughts, behavior, motivations, reactions, actions, and attitudes that are displayed by the target audience when using a digital service/ product, we need researchers in the team. These people are expert in decoding human behavior and help lay a foundation for digital design or human-centered design. Read the complete version here.

    What is UX Design?

    UX design, in the most basic sense, is the process that helps determine the usability, as well as subsequent desirability, of a product; by taking into account all aspects of the user’s psychological journey with it. UX design entirely revolves around creating a detailed framework for the product by prioritizing on user needs.

    UX design is a vital component in building the image of a given product--mobile app, website, etc vis-a-vis the response of the user; that is drawn from the functional utility, aesthetic appeal, and overall efficiency of that product. Read the complete version here.

  • 3. 

    What is UI Design?

    The process of designing any great product--app, website, or other--mainly incorporates the aspects of functionality and aesthetic quality. As has already been established, UX design makes up the functional aspects of a given product. The equally essential visual and interactive elements are covered by UI (User Interface) Design. Put simply, UI makes up the personality and voice of the product; and by extension, it's brand. Read the complete version here.

    What is Front End Development?

    Front-end web development, also known as client-side development is the practice of producing HTML, CSS, and JavaScript for a website or web application so that a user can see and interact with them directly.

  • 6. 

    Does Lollypop create Design Systems?

    Yes, Lollypop has established expertise in creating design systems. We create design systems on demand, not as default. Because it requires additional effort and time, which the client should be okay about. We have created DS for our recent few projects, and we are exploring that arena more to understand better and innovate more.

  • 7. 

    What are the final deliverables at Lollypop?

    For the design engagement, we will give you the PSD or Sketch files on a platform like Marvel or Invision that allows for easy development. If we are collaborating for Frontend Development as well, we will provide you with HTML, CSS, and JavaScript files depending on the development framework.

  • 8. 

    What is a PSD file and how will my developers use it?

    Simply put, a PSD is a Photoshop design file. Technically, it stands for Photoshop Document that can be used by developers to code. The PSD file helps developers to understand the design guidelines and elements such as the font, color palette, spacing, layout, and structure well. They can group similar elements to create the development framework and code.

  • 9. 

    Will I get HTML files in UI Design?

    No, you will get PSD files in UI Design which can be used by developers to produce HTML files.

  • 10. 

    Will you provide me with a prototype for presentations?

    Lollypop will create clickable prototypes in the Marvel app or Invision app post completion of the UI designs. These prototypes can be used for presentations, product walkthroughs and contains the UI assets for developers to use as the input and guide for conversion of designs into Front End code.

  • 11. 

    What will be the age/experience of the designers working on my project?

    User Experience is a nascent field. We would suggest looking at the work experience over age. Lollypop has a combined experience of over 25 plus years in the field of design and all our designers come with a good command over visual tools. There is a design lead assigned to each project who drives innovation and ensures that new quality benchmarks are created consistently.

  • 12. 

    How much time does it take to design a website/ app?

    The time for designing a website/ app will directly depend on the scope of the project. We have had instances where we had put multiple people on a single project to complete the project fast but this would spike up the costs.

  • 13. 

    How much does UX/ UI Design cost?

    The cost of the project is directly proportional to the scope of the project. However, the basic engagement costs with Lollypop can range anywhere between USD 30 - USD 75 per hour depending on the complexity, scope, terms of engagement, and various other factors.

  • 14. 

    What is the different pricing model that Lollypop follows?

    We generally follow multiple pricing models to accommodate the different needs of our clients:

    Retainer Model: This model is adopted where the scope of the project is ambiguous and we are exploring research and innovation. We take on the role of design consultants and help brands discover the hidden potentials and possibilities with their users. The minimum engagement period starts from 3 months and can extend as per the project requirement.

    Fixed Bid Model: It is recommended only for the projects where we are extremely clear about the scope of the project and needs little or no innovation. Here based on the scope of the project, we commit to the timelines and thereby costs are calculated.

  • 3. 

    What questions should we come prepared for in a design interview?

    We would like to know about you, who are you as a person. Along with that, we will ask you to explain the design process and justification of the design elements used during your task phase.

  • 4. 

    Do you work with Freelancers?

    No, we do not work with the freelancers. All our projects are under strict NDA and to protect and honor our client's privacy and IP rights, we only work with the in-house fulltime designers who abide by the studio’s non-disclosure agreements.

  • 5. 

    Do you provide Internships?

    Yes, we provide internships to the design students who are willing to spend a minimum of 4 months and a maximum of 6 months with us. Every intern has to undertake a small task and interview as a part of the screening process.
