From Minimum Viable Product to Meaningful Valuable Platform.

We’re very used to simplifying complex projects. From planning a database structure to user experience design, we use our combined skill set to take your product to the next level.

Our process

  1. .01

    Evaluate

    To get you to where you need to be, we need to understand where you've been.

    We take the time to understand what works and what doesn't. The aim here is to establish a project plan that builds towards your long term goals and keeps everyone on track.

    What does this entail?

    • Review of the creative aspects of your product, including user experience, branding and interface design.

    • Review of the technical infrastructure of your product, including technology stack, 3rd-party service integration and hosting.

    • Understanding your monetisation strategy and how we can increase retention and customer conversions.

    • Defining the creative and technical implementation of your marketing strategy.

    • Defining new feature requirements that can be iterated on incrementally.

    Re-focus

    We’re armed with a deep understanding of your product and business goals. It’s now time to look at the visual identity of your product and re-focus to ensure that you’re having the greatest impact, and your brand is consistent and in-line with your values.

    Visual aesthetics are important, and they will be awesome, but they’re just one part of the process. You need to offer a great user experience so that your customers keep coming back and engaging with your business.

    Services we provide include

    • Wireframing and prototyping to test, iterate and validate our early stage ideas.

    • Information architecture to research and understand data for better decision making.

    • Develop your brand and create guidelines to reflect the essence of your business.

    • User interface design of your product to create an experience that is enjoyable and memorable.

    • Design a consistent experience between multiple devices through application design.

    • Help create marketing assets that are in-line with your brand and help to convert potential users.

    Implement

    We've done our research and we've refocused your product vision. Now it's time to get to work implementing the solution. Every project is different. We may be refactoring your existing product or we may be rebuilding from scratch. Whatever route we take, this is the point where it all comes together.

    We don’t believe in cutting corners. We know from experience, that producing high quality, flexible solutions pays dividends later.

    Migrate

    Migrating data to fit a new infrastructure is a challenge. The aim is to ensure the negative impact to users is minimal.

    There may be content and data that needs to move from one place to another. We've done a lot of this. For example:

    • We migrated 22,000 user accounts from WordPress to Craft for Scott's Bass Lessons.
    • We migrated and post-processed, 2 terabytes of imagery for PHmuseum.
    • And we encoded, watermarked and migrated several hundred product videos for Motion Array.

    Launch, Review & Consult

    After launch, we're here for you for as long as you need us. Our clients will typically go down one of two routes:

    1. We'll hand over to an internal team and then continue to work with you on a consultancy basis.
    2. We become your product team, reviewing, iterating and manage your product with you.

    How our relationship continues depends on your needs.

Let's make something great.

We are inspired by ambitious people working on ambitious projects. Let's hear all about yours.
