Working with us
Design: (n) a strategic approach to solving a defined problem
Every client has unique needs, and we LOVE to do great work for all of them. To help us succeed, we utilize a remarkably flexible, iterative design process engineered to keep things organized and efficient along the way.
We ask a lot of questions. We spend extra time up front making sure we understand your goals and our parameters for success. We listen. We ask more questions. Rinse and repeat as necessary.
Research and Strategy
We dissect the data, question the entrenched assumptions and find creative ways to look for opportunities. We love making beautiful things, and occasionally those things look like spreadsheets and marketing plans.
This work can include poring over your marketing and sales numbers, interviewing your customers, examining website analytics, developing a comparative market analysis, holding focus groups, building customer experience maps and taking trips to the field.
We take on Research and Strategy projects for clients and agencies -- often as a precursor to larger, more involved design/development scopes.
Any solution has to engage your audience and amplify your voice. To get there it takes a lot of back and forth and a constant focus on the goals of the project. Nothing is off the table when it comes to crafting effective strategic solutions. We make recommendations designed to reach your goals. The tools we use to get there are many and varied, but most often we spend our time on interactive web solutions.
When doing web work we always keep in mind...
- How will everything look and function on a variety of screen sizes and device types?
- When your clients ask Google, will you be there to answer? (Search Engine Optimization)
- How can we improve content?
- How can your web presence help your overall business?
- Are we getting at the essence of what makes your company unique?
- Is there a better way?
Looking for non-webby solutions? We do that too. We certainly don't mind spending the time to see if we'll be the right fit for each other. Contact us.
