At the start of every project, we reveal opportunities and restrictions that are embedded in the product vision. We familiarise ourselves with your business objectives, research the target audience, analyse the competition, and explore the existing material. Our goal is to build a shared understanding about the project’s desired outcome as well as its risks among all involved stakeholders.
Based on the gained insights and with an open mind, we work closely with you to develop a product strategy. Together we specify what the product is going to be and what it isn’t. Using a Product Design Sprint, we are able to create and evaluate a tanglible concept quickly and efficiently. The learnings and results are used to hone the product vision and to refine the project plan.
We begin by studying the overall structure of the product to create an information architecture that ensures intuitive user flows. Next, we organize the content into screens that provide the user with just the information they need, when they need it. By focusing on relevancy and the audience’s abilities, we are able to create interfaces that feel natural, even while handling complex tasks. Lastly, we strive to delight our users through visual elegance and polish.
A design’s implementation is as important as the design itself. Through close collaboration between designers and developers we can bridge the gap between functional intent and what the user eventually experiences. Right from the start we embrace technical constraints to find the most suitable solutions. No application will leave our house without being tested thoroughly in terms of stability and performance.
We follow a user-centered design process that is built around continuous evaluation and iteration. Using prototyping and user and stakeholder feedback, we identify the most effective interaction models, interface components, and visualization methods. Every design decision must prove its purpose and is executed with the highest attention to detail.
Project delivery is about providing results. When it’s time to release a new product into the world, we are at your side to review performance and stimulate growth. Rather than the end, this is the opportunity to start a valuable, long-standing collaboration. Everything we collectively learned during the project forms the foundation for future development.
