Assuming you’re starting out with synthesized data that’s been cultivated by you or an outside team, you’ll begin with a user or users, a problem you’re solving, and some goals the user is trying to accomplish. The first step in designing a product is taking the time to understand those elements. If you’re not doing that, then you’re just making art instead of engineering solutions.
It’s important to note that you might not get this data from another team. It might be coming from you if you’re the sole designer at a small startup.
