UX

Being attractive is simply not enough. A good design must accomplish tasks along the lines of a general business model it is part of. That is why before we start sketching we try to understand clients business in depth, imagine lifestyle of the people who are going to use the product and study the available alternatives. The result must be a sustainable design that helps your business to evolve. 

 
 

RESEARCH

The research phase of the UX process is about fully understanding your business, your market, your customers and the overall goals and expectations of the project. 

jonathan-velasquez-384018.jpg
 

ANALYSIS

During the analysis phase, we turn the findings from our research into actionable and shareable insights and use them to inform the concepting and design phases.

 

STRATEGY

During the strategy phase we work with the strategy for the experience, establishing a definition and set of experience principles we want to achieve to inform the design and development process.

daniel-h-tong-202091.jpg
 
william-iven-19843.jpg

DESIGN

During the design phase we take all the business requirements, constraints and insights from our research and design and use them to create solutions.

 

TEST

UX Design is all about focusing on the users. So we include users in all of the development. During the test phase we find out how the created design meet the users needs

linkedin-sales-navigator-402831.jpg
 

We strongly believe that UX will play a much bigger role in the future. Companies are starting to realize the great effect of including both UX and research in the development process. Studies have shown that a small investment or effort (eg. 10% increased development budget) often creates great results (eg. 80+% of increased sales). The important thing is to really make a difference in the early stages.
