Who We Are
Mediabarn’s customer-centric philosophy defines who we are.
In its simplest form, we are committed to applying Human-Centered Design (HCD) methods to understand customer needs, collect feedback, and use that feedback to improve services and products. Whether it’s for customers, citizens, or employees, our Experience Design Studio creates research-informed designs to improve the experience of every human involved.
How We Think
From where we sit, Human-Centered Design is the methodology that prioritizes and directly involves actual customers and users in the design solutioning process by which we create experiences. These days, terms like CX, UX and Service Design are abundantly used, quite often interchangeably. We provide them all and think it’s important to explain their differences. This is how we view them:
Customer Experience (CX)
CX is the entirety of a customer’s journey with a product, company, or brand. Seeing a message on a billboard, making an online purchase, and calling a help desk are all examples of a customer experience.
User Experience (UX)
UX is the digital channel of CX since the interaction with digital products and services is often a significant component of CX. Because so many products we work with are mainly digital, we have gravitated to a focus in UX research and design.
Service Design (SD)
Service Design unifies the entire system. It integrates the front-end touch points and interfaces with which customers interact with the back of the house elements involved in delivering services and content.
What We Do
We offer a full range of strategy, research and experience design capabilities which include:
