If there’s something you don’t understand, we’ll map everything out together and I’ll be there to help you make sense of things every step of the way.
Human-Centered Design is a creative approach to problem solving that puts you and our target beneficiaries back to the core of the design process.
This means we use various mindsets and tools that keep us focused on your needs and contexts, to avoid being distracted by unnecessary (and often expensive) features that sound fancy but don’t really help you achieve your goals.

For simpler sites with standard needs, it’s safe to expect a turnover time between 1-4 weeks.
For projects with unique situations that require the full human-centered design process, we expect these to take between 8-12 weeks to give the process ample time for research, ideation, and implementation.
Generally, our projects take as long as they need to get their specific requirements met. So if your situation, context, and needs call for more complex tasks—or if our research findings lead us to a completely different solution than originally though—adjustments to the deadlines will need to be made.

Search Engine Optimisation is when we gear our website towards ranking higher up on search engine results. The higher your ranking is, the more likely it is that you’ll get visitors (and potential customers).
Getting good SEO is a bit of a challenge because search engines like Google don’t publicly disclose all the factors that they base their rankings on. However, we know that they’re ultimately aiming at making great quality content easier to find, so it’s a good idea to constantly focus on making highly relevant and useful material for your ideal visitors.
