About Our Design Services

Our goal is to help you create great interactive products: website, web applications, and web communities. We've been helping organizations world-wide for over 25 years and we consistently produce breakthrough designs with our clients.

We start with your business goals and help you come to a clear and shared vision of the product you want to develop. We design a product concept that supports your goals and engages and delights your users. We deliver a superb user experience and add value that more than covers our costs.

We're easy to work with, respectful of your budgets and always work to the highest professional standards.

How We Help

Depending on your specific needs, we can provide the following services:Sample projects we've designed

  • Work with the stakeholders to define the product
  • Develop a conceptual design for the user experience
  • Study the users
  • Create personas
  • Design wireframes
  • Create style guides
  • Perform usability tests
  • Perform expert (heuristic) reviews

Our LUCID Framework

Our LUCID Framework has received worldwide attention because it works. We begin with an envision process. We start by thoroughly understanding the business objectives for the product, the technical involved, organizational issues facing the team as well as the people who will be using the product.

We listen carefully to all stakeholder ideas and sift through them to find the common ground. We develop a clear understanding of the users, their needs, capabilities and preferences. Then we create a design concept and draw screens as wireframes for your review. We also show potential users the screens to integrate their ideas and test for usability.

 What Makes Web 2.0 and Social Computing So Difficult?

  There are Ten Barriers to Web 2.0:

  1. Fear of hostile or embarassing postings that can damage your image.
  2. Concern that staff may act inappropriately or disclose proprietary information.
  3. Cost and time required for content development and maintenence.
  4. Compliance, regulatory and legal issues.
  5. The Generation Gap: employees have different expectations and use technology differently.
  6. Requirement for deep competence in usability and user experience engineering.
  7. Cross-departmental, cross-functional, cross-hierarchical, unfiltered communications.
  8. Concerns about security.
  9. What you don't know about how the competition is using these tools to their advantage.
  10. Balancing control with transparency.

  Web 2.0 is defined by agility, transparency, empowerment, user-centricity and creativity... not words typically used to describe most organizations. Managers are not prepared to manage in this environment.
