Product Design Quantana at T-Hub’s BlitZ Workshop

In the heart of Hyderabad, where innovation thrives and startups bloom, Quantana recently hosted the BlitZ Product Design Workshop at T-Hub. As part of T-Hub’s program designed to nurture emerging startups, this one-day session was a melting pot of ideas and creativity, drawing in 24 startups with ambitions ranging from fashion and finance to pharma and housing.

T-Hub is India’s leading innovation ecosystem, positioned at the heart of Hyderabad’s burgeoning tech landscape. It connects startups, corporates, academia, investors, and government bodies to drive collaborative innovation.

Why Design Matters

The workshop kicked off with an engaging discussion on the fundamental role of design in building a tech product. Vishal, Quantana’s CEO and Founder, who also doubles as a passionate designer and Figma maestro, led the session. He delved into why tech products shouldn’t leap straight into development but should first undergo meticulous design planning. The rationale? Aesthetically designed products not only appeal visually but also lay the groundwork for user satisfaction and market success.

Vishal highlighted the importance of UI/UX design, emphasising how it significantly impacts a user’s interaction with a product. “A well-designed product is more likely to succeed in the market,” he asserted. He explained that a good wireframe is not just a blueprint but a powerful tool to attract the right investors by showcasing a product’s potential in the best light.

The Role of UI/UX in Product Success

Quantana’s expertise lies in transforming innovative ideas into visually stunning and user-friendly products. Our UI/UX and Product Design services are at the core of what we do. By leveraging cutting-edge design tools like Figma, we create prototypes that are not just functional but also delightful to use. Our team understands that every touchpoint matters and a seamless user experience can be the difference between a product that flops and one that flies off the shelves.

During the workshop, Vishal and our team of Product Designers guided the participants through defining User Personas, Critical Paths, and User Stories. These elements are crucial in understanding who the users are, what they need to accomplish, and how they interact with the product. This foundation helps in creating designs that are intuitive and user-centric.

Live Design Session: From Concept to Wireframe

One of the highlights of the workshop was the live design session. Here, we selected a startup from the audience to demonstrate the process of turning a concept into a tangible design. The chosen startup aimed to digitise the process of booking physical digital ad spaces in apartments and public places. This innovative idea served as the perfect canvas for our team.

In real time, we collaborated with the startup founder to create a set of low-fidelity wireframes. These wireframes, though basic, provided a clear visual representation of the startup’s concept. By the end of the session, the founder had a concrete tool to present to potential partners, investors, and clients. This hands-on experience underscored the importance of iterative design and feedback in refining a product.

The Quantana Experience

Our mission at Quantana is to help startups recognise and harness the power of good design. As Value Partners at T-Hub, we are committed to mentoring startup founders at various stages of their journey. Our workshops are designed to be interactive and informative, ensuring that participants walk away with actionable insights and practical skills.

Reflections and Takeaways

Reflecting on the workshop, we are thrilled with the enthusiasm and engagement of the participants. Sessions like these are instrumental in setting the tone for startups to understand and implement design principles in their product development process. We are grateful to T-Hub and the organisers for providing us with a platform to share our expertise and guide startups towards success.
