Pragmatic design to achieve your goals: that’s “marketing” to us.

O

ur focus is digital design — design strategy, UX design, graphic design, copywriting — all firmly rooted in UX design. We apply the tenets of UX design — building empathy, understanding stakeholders, starting small, customizing solutions — to our design process itself.

We call it RATIONAL DESIGN.

Our founder, Lee Fuhr, uses his deep digital experience (22+ years in UX) to curate a work plan (we call it a “strategic roadmap”) that saves our clients time, money, and frustration on the way to an informed, reliable, high-quality solution shrink-wrapped to fit each unique problem space.

A proven track record.

We’re designers, not artists. We’re here to solve a problem, not express ourselves. We’re not dreamers, we’re pragmatists.

Lee Fuhr

As a classically trained and deeply experienced Information Architect (now often included under the banner of UX design), I’m keenly aware of how efficiency yields results. I started as a UX designer in 1998 while at Carnegie Mellon University, moving on to large agencies and corporations (Sony, AOL, Teradata, Sapient) as well as smaller agencies and startups (MAYA Design, Eventful). I saw firsthand how the design process had become bloated and costly.

I created Cozy to be the efficient, friendly, empathetic design group in which I always wanted to work. By stripping away the layers of showmanship, the inevitable inefficiencies of a large team, and the scope creep that comes from being motivated by building a portfolio, we can offer the same caliber of design for a fraction of the cost.
