We share some insights into our thinking, how we approach our work and design in general.
We put a lot of thought into our designs, so we thought we’d share some of the thinking behind how we approach our work.
We are real people, with real experience. We understand motivations, passion and that thing which makes us human; emotion. People are the driving force behind a project and people are at the center of the purpose of design. We design for people.
We are observers and participants in business, technology, the arts and design culture. This includes our deep appreciation of the diverse and social community that is the web. We’re in tune with the ‘zeitgeist’ and the ebb and flow of trend, memes and style, because it matters that we are able to understand and connect with audiences.
Creativity is in everything we do. We tackle a problem by exploring many different possibilities, not only to cherry-pick the best ideas, but also to learn more about the challenge itself. We’re expert visual communicators, bringing focus to getting a message out there and doing it with style. Layout, typography, colour and texture are our craft.
We are in business ourselves. We’re also privileged with insight gained through our clients. This gives us real, tangible experience from multiple perspectives. We’re familiar with successful and unsuccessful patterns in many aspects of business, branding and communication, from which we shape our decision making and the advice we give.
Successful design is a result of creativity, passion, knowledge, experience and the effort brought forward by the people behind it. Good ideas do not exist in isolation. This is why we consider collaboration essential to design. Clients, vendors and other stakeholders are all essential contributors to the success of a design. We work together as a team, towards a shared objective.
There is only one constant in technology; change. Trends, fads and buzzwords also come and go. We cut through the cruft and make objective choices, leveraging best-of-breed technologies. In the spirit of craftsmanship, we also take pride in quality and details. Technology is a means to an end, ultimately what’s most important to us and our clients is that technology serves people.
At the heart of all design are motivations, objectives, process and decision making. These considerations span business, culture, design, technology and ultimately the most important factor; people. Our approach is therefore holistic. All the forces that can shape a design are considered in detail and as a whole context.
As you can see, we like to think of the work we do for clients as more than just a surface deep exercise. Design and technology have a real ability to transform perceptions and to provide compelling experiences, but only if done with care and thought. We believe design and technology are tools, and that they ultimately serve the needs of people.
