Our Promise

Product and service design does not happen in conference rooms or behind the computer. It happens through deep immersion as the target audience. We make sure everyone on my team “feels” exactly what the user goes through so all departments are confident with their decisions. We promise the data you get from our work will improve the delivery of your project.

Design Thinking Process

We can adapt to any product design or service design process. This is a common process used by agencies and UX teams and we can jump in and out of various parts to help your team be successful.

Empathize

This is often overlooked or analytics replaced this step and that’s a huge mistake. Formal observation sessions will surface keen insights and major opportunities.

Define

Collecting stakeholder feedback, competitive analysis, product analytics, and discovering clues while defining the direction is the dirty work.

Ideate

This is where the lateral thinkers thrive. Awesome UX designers can take the user insights and the company objectives and make some magic.

Prototype

The objective is to get the most reliable data as possible. We focus on high-fidelity prototypes with real data to mimic the user experience as much as possible.

Test

The prototyping process is paired with user testing. This is not always a linear process so ideas in prototypes may have to be re-designed. Better discovered here than after the product is built!

Ship

Each department needs to know what’s shipping so they can sell, support, and announce to prospects and customers. The UX leader is often the best person to communicate this to other teams.

Monitor

Make sure all assumptions with the product are still valid. Look for usability issues that need to be fixed with each sprint. Create dashboards and reports if cohorts have different success metrics.

Innovate

Always keep improving on the product. We strive to be 10x better than competitors. As UX leaders, we also attend industry events to get inspired and stay on top of trends and innovations.
