What is a UX blueprint and software design doc?

User experience (UX) blueprints, software design docs (SDD), and website specifications are all documents that achieve the same general outcome - they help your team plan ahead while establishing project unity. From articulating your project's goals, objectives and tactics, to defining features, limitations, and proposed designs, a UX Blueprint gives your stakeholders clarity and a common understanding of purpose for a given website or application. 

At MQ, we offer software design planning and UX blueprinting as a service and would be happy to help you with your next digital project—contact us for more information

More importantly, UX blueprints give you the ability to share a plan with your internal leadership team, resulting in valuable feedback and reduced project costs. If a picture is worth a thousand words, then the design mockups in a UX blueprint are worth twenty-thousand words. Our clients love them and so will you. 

The bottom line: a UX Blueprint is a software design document that helps your team succeed by targeting goals, and planning the launch of a new website, mobile app or widget – and we can do that for you.

Why do I need a UX blueprint, plan, or software design document?

When it comes to implementing technology for your business, proper planning is essential. Effective planning not only saves businesses time and money, but it also results in a better product because ideas are fleshed out and fully formed. From the beginning stages, into the software life cycle, a UX blueprint allows you to evolve your ideas before investing in the development phase. Another advantage of a software blueprint is that the process clarifies the user experience and provides insight into the system architecture that forms your project's structure.

I have an idea for an app, website, or product. What's next?

If you're looking to launch a new product, app, website or project, ensure success with a UX blueprint. A professional blueprint will provide you with insight on precisely what your project will look like, how it'll operate and what steps to take to get it off the ground.

Start with a plan – MQ's UX blueprinting process

MQ offers a complimentary initial consultation (approx. 1 hour) to outline your project goals to create a custom foundation for your idea. 

  1. During the initial consultation, our team will work through your idea and create a list of your needs, wants, goals and objectives. We'll discuss the complex aspects of your project, providing suggestions and feedback on your concept to ensure that you fully understand the scope of your build.
  2. In a follow-up meeting, we'll take the information from the consultation to create mockups for you to review.
  3. Next, we'll make any necessary adjustments and provide you with a complete plan, a copy of the design and any relevant files we've created along the way.
  4. Your finalized blueprint is the foundation that your project will be built on.
  5. Lastly, if your team doesn't have the tools to implement your plan, we'll offer any services required to help you make that leap forward.

Was exactly what I hoped for

Working with the Mobility Quotient Design team on the concepts for Goood Choices was fantastic. The direction the design took was exactly what I hoped for and more. I left the meeting with greater knowledge of my idea and its strengths and weaknesses.”
