How do we work?

The Human Design Process

  • Research


    Learning what a user feels, thinks and needs comes first. We must fit these essential expectations into market reality while showcasing your best USP.

  • Blueprint


    We use a simple prototype as the most cost-effective way to validate your idea, find investors, get accurate development estimates and tweak your business model.

  • Design teaser

    Next, it’s time to test how your audience responds to your product look and feel. We iterate and refine based on your feedback until we know you will win users’ hearts and minds.

  • Prototype


    Clickable prototypes work as a ‘single source of truth’ for you and your development team; this is how we make sure nothing falls through the cracks.

  • Handoff


    We provide you and your team with a comprehensive style guide including typography, iconography and reusable UI components. Always online and easy to use.

Frequently Asked Questions

Do you do development?

No, and this gives you two big advantages: First, our systems and designs aren’t biased about development techniques; we focus on what truly matters for your users. Second, our approach also means your assignment to a developer is closed to ‘endless development’ tactics. Simply say “build this” instead of asking what, why or how to develop.

Why not entrust design to a software house?

Software development firms aren’t single-minded specialists in User Experience or User Interface design so they make system layout and design mistakes. The most profitable strategy for many developers is to provide mediocre design, hook you into a contract and charge more for inevitable changes – including more development changes to match.

Why not hire a freelancer?

Even just searching for the right-fit freelancer can be a tremendous waste of time and money. Lone freelancers come and go, can’t offer services beyond their field of expertise (like a UX designer working on animations) and seldom have enough experience to assist and advise you in a product launch. A full function company usually fits the ticket better.

Where are you located?

We’re based in Poznań, Poland and have worked remotely since 2012. Most of our clients come from the US, Europe (including the UK), Australia and New Zealand.
