Philosophy and Services
What We’re About
We improve people's relationship with technology and services by partnering with companies to deliver simple, human experiences through world-class research, product strategy, and design.
We believe that products and services are tools for empowering people—driven by a desire to make someone’s life a little easier and simpler—and that even the most powerful and complex tools can be friendly and approachable.
🚩 Better Outcomes, Faster
We thrive because we are strategists and practitioners.
We understand product market fit, and the difference between a great concept and how to effectively execute and land it.
We know what product excellence is and how to get there incrementally.
We don’t reinvent the wheel, pulling from industry norms to accomplish the task at hand, only inventing new patterns as needed to serve the user.
We ground decisions by balancing what affordances are needed to guide a user to effectively accomplish a task—based on norms and user mental models—and the realties of available resources.
We solve operational problems so that concepts become actionable because product managers and engineers understand the intent and feasibility. Teams know where to find files. Things are logically labeled and organized. Because it enables colleagues to work as a team.
We understand product and scale—the difference between a single or multi-purpose product, a platform, a platform product, and a suite of platform products, and their users, because we've lived it.
