Our Process

Building something new can have a huge impact on your organization. Our flexible, cyclical process ensures that you maintain momentum effectively and purposefully, improving with each iteration.

chart

Plan

Working together, we'll define a comprehensive vision to guide us forward. We'll engage with users to understand the audience and test our hypotheses.

Build

When it’s time to build, choosing the right tools is essential. We might mock up a concept, model scenarios, prototype how a solution might look, feel, and behave, or build the real thing.

Launch

Time to launch! This is where user testing can really inform the work. We’ll help you honestly evaluate market-readiness and continue to evolve post-launch.


Our Work

Experience design informs all of the different ways, places, and devices your audience engages with you. Here are some of our best examples.

Our People

Our designers, strategists and product managers bring a wealth of experience and perspective to the table.

Our Principles

We’ve learned a few things along the way, and find our teams work best when we follow these guidelines.

Travel light, with heavy hitters.

We keep our teams lean, with senior talent who can work quickly and bring diverse skills and experience to your project.

Impact is everything.

We have proven processes and practices, but also understand that every project is different. We are flexible in how we help you succeed.

Don’t stop believin’.

Passion for our work is important. We actively seek projects and partners that make a difference in the world.

Prototype, prototype, prototype.

We work iteratively to find the best solutions, prototyping early and often to learn as we go.

Collaborate like crazy.

It takes solid teamwork and communication to get things done. Our internal crew, our clients, our fellow partners—we are all part of the same team.

Keep it real.

We are perfectionists, but not at the expense of progress or our team. We are easy to work with, and seek positive, like-minded clients.

Our Thoughts & Happenings

We have many curious minds. Here’s some insight into what we’re thinking, where we’ve been and where we’re going.
