Whether you're an intern, a designer, a researcher, a director, an executive, or a founder - actively listening to those you serve is not optional. We combine leading UX, HCD, and IxD frameworks with our unique expertise in designing for the human mind. It’s never too early to minimize risk and ensure you’re building something people need, not to mention cultivating the shared purpose and collaborative mindset your team needs to create lasting impact.
We help public companies and institutions reimagine their offerings and evolve their internal culture. We also bring the same enthusiasm and expertise to serve solo founders and small non-profits who are just finding their footing. Depending on your current situation, we can apply our tried and tested approach in a number of different ways:
Facilitation, Research, Insight
For projects needing clarity, focus, and direction, we gather evidence and facilitate a series of workshops aimed at clarifying a viable path forward. You'll show up as a team, collaborate on synthesizing insights and opportunities, and we'll define new products, services, features, or initiatives together.
Tactics, Training, Culture
If we have a clear sense of the opportunity and problem space, we’re ready to parachute into your team to design, prototype and test meaningful experiences tailored to your target audience. We solve your current UX problems through human-centered design while building up your internal team and culture to continue the process without us.
Coaching, Visioning, Planning
If you have limited financial resources and some internal bandwidth available, we’ll set aside a bank of hours for weekly meetings and async support to help your team bring an effective design process forward from the inside out. You’ll have a tailored point person to manage most of your needs, and we’ll loop in the rest of the Still Ape team as needed.
