MOBILE UX & UI Design
Work With Expert App Designers
App design is one of the most important and overlooked aspects of the app development process. A simple, intuitive and visually appealing UX and UI design can be the make-or-break for your app. Getting it right is crucial. At DreamWalk, our experienced designers combine industry best-practices with creative flair and innovation to produce original and user-friendly app designs that win awards and engage users.
Mobile UI Design
An app’s user interface (UI) is what users interact with. Designing a UI that is both intuitive and visually appealing takes an eye for detail and very specific skills and experience.
DreamWalk are the industry leader in mobile app UI design. We’ve designed apps that have won awards, been featured by Apple over 100 times and achieved a record 89 No. 1 App Store chart rankings.
We are all about the details, paying close attention to transitions, micro-interactions and visual rewards while also maintaining brand consistency and accessibility.
Mobile UX Design
Before a user interface can be effectively designed, it is best practice to first map out and design an intuitive and efficient user experience (UX). This is perhaps the most important design phase and one that DreamWalk’s design team prides itself on.
Beginning at our unique app design and strategy workshops, we work closely with the client to fine-tune their app concept and map out the user journey. This involves carefully defining the target user and unique selling proposition, then mapping out the app features to align with the key objectives of the project.
Using industry-leading UX research and design tools, our design team then develop and perfect a user experience that feels intuitive and rewarding. Our UX designers employ specialist techniques to eliminate barriers for users and make sure the app design is driven by real business-goals.
UX design tools we use:
App Icon Design
Your icon is the first impression people get of your app on the App Store. It can mean the difference between someone installing your app or scrolling past it. Designing a high performing icon is an art and a science.
Interactive Prototype Design
A clickable, interactive prototype can be extremely useful for raising capital and demonstrating how an app will look to stakeholders. It can also be useful for nutting out complex user experiences and gaining important user feedback and insights before development begins.
At DreamWalk, we create interactive prototypes using Sketch, Invision, Adobe XD and Figma for ultimate flexibility and compatibility. These prototypes can be shared via a simple link and accessed on any iOS or Android device and also via the web.
We offer high-fedelity interactive design prototypes in a standalone prototype package or as part of a broader app design and development engagement. Get in touch with our strategy team to discuss your app prototyping options.

5-Pass Reduction Wireframing: A minimalist UX design technique.
Antoine de Saint-Exupery said: “Perfection is Achieved Not When There Is Nothing More to Add, But When There Is Nothing Left to Take Away”.In my view, this pretty much sums up great UX design too and it forms the basis of my 5-Pass Reduction Wireframing technique.
