There is often a dramatic difference between what people say they do and what they actually do. In addition, business problems rarely clearly identify themselves. Because of this, leaders within an organization often miss an opportunity to address underlying strategic issues.
To illuminate these nuances and recognize the dimensions of a problem, we apply social theory, a host of ethnographic tools, and strategic thinking to business contexts. This provides us with a better understanding of stakeholder behaviors, motivations, and perspectives as well as what they are driven by.
We translate the insights we discover during field work into actionable solutions that harness an organization’s competitive advantages and take account of the interplay between design and business strategy.
Good design ensures every interaction a customer has with an organization or object is as productive and engaging as possible by simultaneously focusing on the essential aspects and being thorough down to the last detail. In this manner, the nature of customer relationships changes as brands, design, and technology converge and users begin to expect unified designed experiences that are an engaging as they are useful and usable.
We make clean, elegant digital products that solve complex problems, but we’re just as comfortable tackling print design, copywriting, illustration, and photography. By doing so, we plan and create an ecosystem of connected experiences where everything works together and fits together in a seamless whole. In this manner, we bring together innovation, services, products, user interfaces, brand identities, advertising, and social media, as well as traditional media sources and maximize the potential of each individual part.
New technologies drive innovation and a broader yet more nuanced awareness of technology and market trends can itself become a powerful source of new and differentiating ideas. Similarly, web and social analytics are a valuable, yet often under-utilized source of information.
In addition to fulfilling the front- and back-end development of immersive, interactive, and responsive experiences, we show clients how relevant technological developments can be catalysts for growth in their organizations and shift the focus of digital analytics from data collection and reporting to gaining valuable insights.
Design research guides all of our work as we ideate and discover original findings then select and execute creative solutions.
