There’s too much worry in the world.
We want you to feel the opposite: Cozy. 🧘
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.
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.More about what we do
Consider joining our San Diego Design Designers group. More than 700 people, we meet online via Slack and in person at social events around the city. It’s a great opportunity to share ideas, get inspired, find support, and celebrate great design.
