We are advocates for a research-based, data-driven process that balances strategy, research, analysis, monitoring and testing with creative ideation and prototyping in an iterative cycle. <> We promote rapid, low-fidelity Lean and Agile methods to help ship quickly and efficiently. <> We believe in the power of user-centered design - where product development prioritizes the needs and goals of the user - in order to best support and achieve business goals. <> We advocate team discovery and goal-setting, like Google's Design Sprints, to quickly align and unify teams around the most effective solutions.
why oxford tech
STRATEGIC BUSINESS FOCUS
Many UX firms focus on aesthetics and design- we focus on solving audience problems and meeting business needs.
DATA DRIVEN APPROACH
We rely heavily on research, testing and analytics for insights, inspiration and decision-making. We also often start an engagement with a thorough understanding of the industry and competitive landscape to get a sense of how you're performing now.
We've spoken at over 50 UX and tech events since 2011, and Beverly is currently working on a book retrospective of key lessons from the UX Awards. Beverly also teaches both UX and Product Management and mentors startups and incubators.
Many agencies offer you 3-5, somewhat similar pre-selected solutions - we offer you 15-30 concepts- or more! We believe in a creative process that's heavy on ideation and collaboration, so we can discover the freshest and best solution.
STRONG TECHNICAL EXPERTISE
Beverly has an MS in systems design, has held roles that include CTO, and has hands-on experience in full-stack software development and software team management.
THE SMARTS TO HANDLE COMPLEXITY
We're at our best managing and architecting big, unwieldly, complex software projects that require strong analytical ability, organization and attention to detail.
