User Experience

Who we are

We are the coffee shop where left and right brains go to hang out. Our designs carry with them a deep and thoughtful strategy that both captures the vision of the client and the heart of end users.

What we do

We work in black, white and very very dark gray. While we love color, we prefer to start our designs in grey scale so that the focus is on function over form; that way your users get both a usable and beautiful experience. We’re all ears (insert adorable picture of an elephant [here]). In a world that’s always talking, we listen. We listen to our clients, their stakeholders, their users and the marketplace waiting to hear that viable pulse that waits beneath the surface. It’s that pulse that gives real and meaningful life to the design we concept next.

How we do it

We do it together; every project is influenced by our collective and diverse ux consciousness. Also, we hold the finest tea selection you’ve ever seen south of the mason-dixon line and equipped with these delightful drinks no design task is too daunting.

"We’re collaborative and thoughtful. We’re all UX at our core but also have individual superpowers that we bring to the table−from a penchant for content creation, a passion for research and analytics, depth of knowledge in psychology, or a strong visual acumen. These collectively create a beautiful and strong dynamic of skills for our clients."
