How far along the plan is it?

Find worthy challenges
User Experience (UX) design should be much simpler to do right. With better UX, all the things that surround us will become more pleasent to use and more effective. Although this assumes aligned goals between creators and end users.

Think it through
Current UX tools often focus on the scope of screens. There is a need for a holistic UX tool that stimulates designs that put the human at the center and makes it easy to share and update designs.

Create concepts & prototypes
I've started prototyping with the focus on how to ensure a single source of truth that is easy to share. This resulted in a prototype for command based wireframing. Both for Slack, desktop and the web. It was live and used a couple of hundred times for a few months.

Partner up
I've not found a partner for this project, but I also feel I need to do at least one big iteration on the prototype before its true potential becomes obvious.

Make it self sustainable
In a commercial context the added value of such a tool should be self evident, but is not proven. The tool improves the speed of creation, with higher quality.

Make a real impact
I've had e-mail contact with the major UX tool companies, And the first article 'A True UX tool' was widely read and shared within these companies. So presumable, the articles had an inspirational impact. The prototype itself hasn't had any impact.

Effort for Inclusive innovation

Create tools that allow and stimulate us all to participate in designing our future. Make it simpler, cheaper and more fun to participate and grow ideas regardless of prior knowledge about the creative process.
