All projects should involve the 5 stages of design thinking:
Fundamentally understand who you are designing for, talk with them, understand how they think and what they want to accomplish. You are not who you are designing for.
Write down the problems that will have the highest impact on the experience for your users. Align the priority of which problems to solve first with your team and stakeholders.
Challenge your assumptions, the assumptions of the people around you, and iterate on concepts based on different combinations of opinions. It's much easier to see the right answer when you can see some options.
Build it as close to reality as you can, without spending an obscene amount of time.
Put your creations in the hands of people to see if you assumptions during ideation were correct. See what needs to be improved, and go back to the top.
