Design begins with the needs of the user. No design, no matter how beautiful and ingenious, is any good if it doesn't fulfil a user’s needs. Finding out what the customer wants is the first stage of what designers do. The designer then builds on the results of that inquiry with a mixture of creativity and commercial insight.

Although gut instinct is part of the designer's arsenal, there are more scientific ways of making sure the design hits the mark. These methods could combine market research, user testing, prototyping, and trend analysis and foremost, knowledge about users in real-world situations especially gives insight into their behaviour that lead to ideas that wouldn't have formed had the designer simply thought about the situation, or relied on generalised market research.
