Our Process

Plan

We listen to you, we understand your goals, and we create a user experience without friction.

Build

Your code is developed iteratively. As your business evolves we continue to satisfy your objectives.

Learn

Developing for testable outcomes means making more informed decisions each product cycle.

Services

Usability

All is well and good until someone actually uses your product. We create testable prototypes, for real people, in order to prove your hypothesis and make suggestions based on measurable outcomes.

Visuals

We focus on designing for mobile first by creating visual style guides and design patterns for your application. We dial in variables and confirm look and feel across typography, forms and media.

Development

Developing custom front-end pattern libraries is our sweet spot. We determine which components are crtical and optimize the interface elements and interactive patterns accordingly.

Application

We work with a diverse group of design and development teams. Because of this, we're able to provide the consultation you need to guide the growth of your team and product.

Work

Ngaged Desktop View

New York University

Ngaged is a Brooklyn-based software and technology start-up focused on transforming the learning process for the University and broader education market. We worked closely with the Ngaged team to produce a platform for student and teachers to interact outside the classroom.

Our work resulted in a series of mobile HTML5 prototypes which allowed the developers and primary stakeholders to test key user scenarios. We created targeted versions of their primary desktop offering which allowed students to focus on simple actions like bookmarking and audio playback.
