User Experience

Our UX Studio offers strategy, user research and design utilizing Human-Centered Design (HCD) methodologies to provide research-informed experiences for enterprise applications, consumer facing websites, and mobile apps. We support agile frameworks, including agile at scale, as well as waterfall.

User Experience

Differentiators

HCD Specialization

We are specialists, not generalists. Human-centered design is all we do, and our approach involves applying uniquely specialized talent across the main User Experience disciplines of strategy, research and design. Utilizing the industry recognized expertise that our specialists bring enable us to craft the best possible experiences for our clients and their customers.

Integrated Research Lab

As one of the first digital consultancies to build their own in-house research facility, we were early to embrace the value of involving actual users and customers throughout the product design process. With full lab operations and recruitment capabilities (LabOps), our modern state-of-the art facility supports a wide range of research studies.

Technology Agnostic

Because HCD is all we do, we are not tied to any one technical solution, and have no inherent bias that might exist if we were also selling a specific software product or platform. While there is a right time for solutioning and technical coordination, this approach enables us to focus on designing the right experience that will drive value for users and the business.

Utilizing research and testing in the design process is critical for gaining insight into user needs and behavior, as well as understanding the product and its objectives. Learn more about our Lab and how it helps influence the user experience.
