UX Stage 5: Detailed design & development
The detailed design stage also requires validation and often needs the attention of the designer to sit with the developers in regards to delivering the final product. I often work closely with the development teams at this stage, testing what they create off the back of the final mock ups, be it they require pixel perfect hi-fidelity interface mockups or the elements to build the product. It is important that the stage 4 validation and testing stage is repeated here to make sure that what is delivered is in fact what was signed off by the client/stakeholder and also has no glitches or user issues.

- Illustrator/Photoshop mock-ups
- Creating and delivery UI elements
- HTML/CSS code/direction
- Development support
- Testing all functionality and validating the product with the client/stakeholder
