Design

Form meets function when Trailhead Technology Partners designs your custom software and apps.

Highly Intuitive Design Elements Are Integral for Optimal UX

The way your end users interact with our apps and software is an important consideration for our design process. Our team factors in the way digital solutions will be utilized, and then uses this insight to help ensure functionality is optimized.

Sketch

This vector graphics editor works for macOS and has a web application that allow users to share files online. It is primarily used for user interface and user experience (UI/UX) design of websites and mobile apps, while also possessing features for prototyping and collaboration. The files designed in Sketch are saved in its own file format, though the files can be opened in Adobe Illustrator, Adobe Photoshop, and other programs.

InVision

From a design perspective, InVision helps our team by centralizing the workflow for a highly collaborative experience at every stage of the process. We can use this platform to embed editable Google Docs, Jira issues, Kanban boards, and Mode dashboards for efficient planning and gaining insights from key stakeholders. With Microsoft Teams and Zoom integrations, InVision can turn meetings into working sessions so we can align faster and move forward on the same page.

Zeplin

Our developers use Zeplin to organize screens, publish locked designs, and scale design systems. Because the workspace is friendly to the entire team, even non-designers can step in to work within the platform. This allows for easy collaboration. Zeplin also gives teams the ability to create custom workflows and connect codebase to a design system.

Figma

This online whiteboard is an outstanding tool for open brainstorming and housing design work in one place. By connecting the dots across development, design, and product, Figma helps make an impact and allow us to generate high-quality work for our clients. Sharing, presenting, and gathering feedback on interactive prototypes with dynamic overlays and smart animation makes a big difference for internal and external collaboration.

Adobe InDesign

This highly popular desktop publishing and page layout designing software program is integral for managing design elements. Given our focus on end user interface and experience, InDesign is an excellent tool delivering immersive experiences. It also works extremely well with our collaborative approach as the application integrates easily with Adobe Creative Cloud and Experience Manager for optimal sharing of graphics, content, and fonts. Plus, InDesign supports XML, style sheets, and other coding markup.

Responsive Designs for Your Apps and Software

We take pride in all facets of development and product build, including the design work done by our talented software engineers and design leads. Our ultimate goal is a responsive design that allows applications to adapt to the capabilities of your end users’ devices. To facilitate exceptional design, we utilize first-class resources like InVision, Adobe InDesign, Figma, Sketch, and Zeplin.  

Always Designed to Help Solve Your Problems

Our design work starts with our initial meetings with you. As we seek to understand your problems and begin brainstorming ideas to help you overcome them, our team forms ideas as to what the solution might look like. Throughout the entire process, we continue to collect information and insight from your team that we then use to incorporate specific elements into our design. Because our goal is to help solve your problems, we undergo rigorous testing throughout the entire process to ensure that both the design and functionality are high quality.

Montage Portal

Montage Furniture Services provides furniture protection plans and claims processing services to a wide selection of furniture retailers and consumers.

Project Background

Montage was looking to build a new web portal for both Retailers and Consumers, which would integrate with Dynamics CRM and other legacy systems. The portal needed to be multi tenant and support branding and configuration for different Retailers. Trailhead architected the new Montage Platform, including the Portal and all of it’s back end integrations, did the UI/UX and then delivered the new system, along with enhancements to DevOps and processes.
