AEM Mobile App design methodology

Our AEM Mobile app design methodology is meant to be flexible and meet the needs of the project and client. At Bates Creative, an effective app design begins with strategy.



We lead a collaborative process to learn from you and the strategic work you’ve already accomplished, such as reader research, so that design and launch can move forward.

Content Consulting

Just as design needs to evolve, so too should the content for mobile applications. We offer you content consulting to help define a path forward for content. This will include discussions on user experience and uses of overlays (interactive elements), such as: video/audio placement, image sequence, hyperlinks, buttons, panoramas, etc.

Define & Plan

Based on the Discovery and Content Consulting, our team will create a comprehensive creative brief and planning documents including wireframes to map out how the experience will come to life.


Design Concepts

After the planning documents are approved, design can begin. A team of designers will be assigned to your project, with scheduled critiques that are used to refine the concept directions for the client presentation. After a design direction is selected, and feedback and revisions are finalized, we will move into the build-out within the AEM Mobile dashboard.


With the concept for the mobile application established, the design, layout, and implementation of the interactive experience for the app can begin. Periodic reviews of the content with the client will be planned. The client will be able to view a live proof on their mobile device. Proofing and correction rounds will lead to the completion of the app design and preparation for launch.



With the AEM Mobile Dashboard information in place, and the design of the app complete, the app is submitted to be published, and upon approval, is available for download in its respective App Stores.
