This time, U-mei continues with the last stubble. Before continuing, let's take a look at the entire catalog (full of dry goods)
U sister listed a small directory:
Project Estimated Time
At this moment, we have obtained the PRD documents and prototypes. Don't rush to open the PS drawing, because the development of a project takes time. In order to complete the development progress more efficiently, the entire team needs to estimate the project time as a UI. , very simple, that is, count the pages, see how many pages there are in total, and then estimate in detail...
For example, when you receive an APP project, there are about 70 pages in total, (Nani! 70 pages, my God, don’t be surprised, 70 pages are not much for an APP at all. )
At this time, the boss and the product may ask you how long it will take you to finish the picture. Don’t rush to answer first. You need to check all the pages first. They will rush you endlessly, because they are anxious to go online and seize the market, and they can’t wait for you to work overtime every day. Figure, and then go online; urge you to leave it alone, let them rush as much as you want (if you urge you again, you can also say: urge you to be paralyzed, hurry up, you come to draw, it is purely a joke, if you dare, then you really NB)
1. Identify important pages
What is an important page? In today's age of looking at appearance, the face is the most important, and the home page is the face of an APP; there are many page layout main parts that share the same layout structure, which is also an important page. Take the home page as an example, you may need to spend 2 days to complete it, and all of it takes 2 days because you have to determine the main color, design style, icon design, etc., and also to ensure the quality (if anyone thinks you are slow , you torture him: If you want to go fast, then reduce the quality, if there is a problem, you are responsible, la la la~~)
We all know that we can’t have both. We want both high speed and high quality. It is impossible to guarantee the two at the same time, and it is difficult to balance them.
Then select an important page, estimate the time, and so on. In fact, after the home page is determined, the design style of the entire APP has basically been established, and other pages are much easier to do.
2. Filter duplicate pages
In an APP, there are actually many pages with similar partial structures, so 70 pages, if filtered in this way, it is estimated that there are only half, and 30 pages are not repeated.
Insert a sentence: in the process of drawing, it is impossible to guarantee 100% that there will be no other tasks, and there will definitely be some additional design tasks. So, don't estimate the time just right, unless you are very sure that there will be no additional design tasks.
So, for the remaining 30 pages, according to my speed and enough time (about 30%-50% more in the actual estimated time), it will take me about 2 weeks to complete.
3. Overall estimated time
When the time for 30 main pages is determined, the time for the rest of the duplicate pages must now be counted. The remaining 40 pages are equivalent to batches, which can be purchased steadily within a week. Don't estimate the time too tightly. Because you don't know that the boss may throw you something for you to do inadvertently, and you still want it in a hurry, and you can only cry in the end.
Review prototype → statistical screening page → important page design (30) → secondary page design (40) → review + revision → final draft
According to her estimated time, it is orderly and unstable, and it can be completed in about 3 weeks if it is able to cope with unexpected design tasks.
4. Estimated time for web design
Generally speaking, if it is a relatively large-scale thematic page design, I usually estimate 3 days, including inspiration, conception, reference, design, and modification.
If it is a website and there are three-level pages, about 5 pages, it will take about 5 days; the specific can be estimated according to the number of pages, and so on.
What U sister is talking about here is just my own b2b data experience sharing and working method. The specific time should be estimated according to my actual situation. Regarding the estimated time of the project, that's all I have said. There are deficiencies or problems. You can leave a message to U sister.
