A simple, strategic, and hands-on approach for touchy situations.
Discover, Define, Delight, Design, Deploy
Rooted in perpetual truth seeking and fueled by purpose. Our process encourages co-creation and requires user feedback in order to create a purposeful and scalable outcome.
Digging (for) answers in the formless. We utilize perpetual truth seeking techniques to discover mental models and uncover any opportunities for delight.
Rooted in discovery to shape the formless with intent. Our vision is defined with flows, layout concepts and structured content. Vision is the art of seeing what is invisible to others.”
Shaped with intent — our vision takes form. Delight fortifies the defined vision via testing of branding, context, interactions, etc. to concisely communicate, relate, and resonate with the intended audience.
Fortified by the fires of Delight. We apply our design strategy to create the reusable elements and UI patterns necessary for an accessible, sustainable and scalable vision.
Time to develop the vision and meet accordingly until completion. When complete, we deploy the vision for all to enjoy as a delightful experience created with the intent to meet and exceed expectations. Then repeat the 5 D’s process 😊 for future iteration and innovation.
“Time and energy is priceless. When creating, wise carpenters measure twice and cut once.”

By far, one of the most entertaining lunch-and-learns that we have had
I just wanted to take a second to say thank you again for coming into TCG to present to us. That was, by far, one of the most entertaining lunch-and-learns that we have had and, of course, super informative. Anyone who can manage to get the Squatty Potty Unicorn into a presentation about user experience is A-OK in my book!
