are here to improve people’s lives. To do that, we have to get more users interacting with more businesses that have invested in their design.

We don’t think that we do that by pushing every client through an idealized design process that feels good for us, but which is ultimately a risky, costly endeavor for the business — one that might be so risky and costly that the business doesn’t invest in design at all.

Not every business needs to burn 3 weeks and $25,000 developing personas. Not every interaction needs a user journey. Not every word needs a rewrite. As designers, we need to operate against the full context of our client's situation. Only when the problem is big enough — and the time and budget are there — should we start carefully adding complexity to the process. Do as little as possible, but no less. Then, learn from what you did, and do more, better.

Our process

In general, our process is basically the same as you'll see at every agency. We all start by understanding the situation, then move from quick-and-dirty drafts to polished finals. But let's check the box…

Step 1.

To succeed, we need to empathize;  to empathize, we need to understand.
