Similarities between Money Heist & UX Design

— From Smriti Rawat's Article

1. The Professor & Research

First in the row has to be everyone’s favorite, the professor- a charismatic and intellectual mastermind of the heist. The character is a perfectionist, shy and a far-sighted planner. The personality trait which we as UX designers should learn from this character is

Decision making ability

• First step to a great product or heist is research, be it your target audience or the site to be robbed, always plan for the smallest details.

• Collecting information about the problem statement.

• Anticipate and plan the user journey beforehand

2. Tokyo & Trend analysis

This character has a personality of its own which is brave and audacious. Sometimes being audacious about your thoughts and view points during the design process will help you to convey great ideas to the clients and stakeholders effectively. That is to say. why to follow the trend when you can set the trend!

Trend Analysis

• Keep hold of the trend

• Do thorough competitor analysis and market research

• Collect and study data

3. Nairobi & her eye for detail

Helsinki was one person in the entire gang who respected and listened to everyone in the team. Evidently, half of the problems of the world will vanish if people start listening to each other and start observing. Now that you have it, start implementing it! ;)

God is in the details

• Make the designs pixel perfect

• Take the charge and own your designs

• Ask the right questions and even criticize your work

4. Denver & Empathy

Even in the dire condition that of a heist, Denver didn't give up on his empathetic attitude. Oust like in digital product designing, the only constant here is “ the user". However overused this term 'empathy' may be in our industry but as designers this is our responsibility that we think for our users first.

Empathy

• It always starts and ends with users

• Care about user's pain point

• Advocate for your users

5. Berlin & Agility

At firsti, you will find this characier absolute narcissist and sexist yet over time you start adoring him for his promptness and reliability towards his purpose. No matter how much you love to hate the character yet Berlin certainly displayed some positive traits which over shadowed the negative ones.

Agility, Punctuality & Integrity

• Commit and stick to deadlines

• Practice agile methodology

• A big no no to procrastination

6. Rio & Technology

The perfect closeness in this character and in that of UX design would be computers and technology. That's how important, understanding human computer interaction is to both UX design and the heist!

Human computer interaction

• Make the human-computer interaction as smooth as possible

• Know how to use latest tools and softwares

7. Helsinki & Communication

Helsinki was one person in the entire gang who respected and listened to everyone in the team. Evidently, half of the problems of the world will vanish if people start listening to each other and start observing. Now that you have it, start implementing it! ;)

Communication within the team

• Try to bring different perspective

• Communicate clearly and regularly

• Give and take feedback

8. Paquel & Documentation

Apart from her incredible hair tying skills, Raquel’s zeal to solve her problems is convincing. Having said that, the character’s sincerity and patience not only helped her in getting close to her goal but also diverted the mastermind from his own plan. Major take away from this could be :

Document everything

• Document every iteration and design decision from the start

• Don't be afraid to fail

• Take criticism positively
