It is architecting the flow of giving and receiving information in an experience.

It helps designers think of high level solutions and guide detailed design direction.

Visual Design

Visual Design is applying the visual language that connects products to users.

Rules & syntax, design systems, and overall look-and-feel amplify the interaction design into full product design.

Design Review

Design reviews are expert and heuristic reviews to identify and prioritize design and usability issues.

They can identify immediate fixes, define near-term goals, and outline larger projects.

Workshops

Workshops are hands-on group sessions. They have many uses to spur design thinking and share knowledge.

Visioning, training, brainstorming, design sprints, project debriefs and more.

Wire-framing

Wireframes are low resolution designs to give structure to concept models, but before visual design (e.g., mockups).

They are used to first assess design concepts in more tangible product format.

Research Services
Usability Testing

For any development format: paper, wireframes, mockups, prototypes, and live products.

Personas
