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 (20 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.

In a world full of expensive inspiration, Cozy is home to brands that simply want to look good, feel good, and grow.

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 Information Architect (now often included under the heading of ‘UX designer’), I’m keenly aware of how efficiency yields results. As a UX designer (starting in 1998 while at Carnegie-Mellon University) at large agencies and corporations (Sony, AOL, Teradata, Sapient) as well as smaller agencies and startups (MAYA Design, Eventful) I saw firsthand how the process of great design had become bloated, inefficient, and costly.

I created Cozy to be the efficient design group I always wanted to work in. 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.
