We care about the mission. As designers, we're responsible for what we bring into the world. So we only work on things we'll be proud of, with people we admire.
We don't work on things, or work with people, that we don't believe in.
We want to become part of the team, and share in the joy of building a meaningful product. We start with ideas, work through sketches, prototype interactions, follow through implementation, and repeat as needed.
We don't look for one-off jobs, where the end deliverables are fancy mockups.
We're hired to think through problems. We ask why. We iteratively discover the product. We talk to the users. Strategy matters to us. Oh, the beautiful interfaces? By-products of doing good work.
We don't want to be hired to "make it look good", "pretty it up", or "be artistic."
We focus on product, interface, and visual design for web/mobile apps.
We investigate ideas, sketch up concepts, think about the user, worry about business objectives, scribble lots of notes, drink a bit of coffee, mock up pretty pictures, prototype interesting interactions, do a few kettlebell swings, integrate our design with the engineers, analyze the analytics, ride magical unicorns, and finally start over again.
In short, we make things.
We sponsor a local group, Design Alexandria, and make it out to plenty of design meetups in the DC-area. Our favorites:
