Drawing Backwards To Move Forward

The unique results we deliver also stem from our unique process. Rather than diving into design immediately, we draw backwards first and uncover the desired outcomes our partners and their users want to achieve. From there, we collaborate with stakeholders, users, and each other throughout a six-step process, which focuses on reaching their goals while delivering value every day.

Research Icon


Research the problem, audience, current solution’s strengths and weaknesses, and success metrics.

Empathize Icon


Put yourself in the user’s shoes to understand what they are doing, feeling, and thinking.

Define Icon


Define the primary problem or pain point the user is experiencing and what needs to be fixed.

Ideate Icon


Diverge to brainstorm as many creative solutions as possible. The more ideas, the better!

Prototype Icon


Converge to design and/or build a preliminary model of the most appropriate solution(s).

Test Icon


Share the prototype with real users to gather feedback. Then ideate, prototype, and test again.
