Feb 2012 - Present (9 years 10 months)
Experience designers create meaningful relationships among people, products, services, and environments. Research approaches include concepts, methods, and processes from social sciences, interaction design, visual design, psychology, business and engineering.
We collaborate, facilitate and listen. We dive into what works and what doesn’t work for teams, divisions, clients, customers and vendors.
We repeat our work until big ideas form into detailed design solutions that are feasible, viable and aspire to surprise and delight. Solutions could be desktop, mobile, software, services, or a simple process recommendation.
