A lot can be done with a little.
Your product may be showing its age, it may be a poorly executed great idea or a gorgeous product that lacks vision or cohesion, it may be an infant idea still forming in your head. We can help.
Moving forward with confidence on a big project or new initiative can be difficult when you’re basing your decisions on hunches and online research. Whether you are planning a re-org to support a fresh design focus, creating a design system to tighten your development efforts or considering a new technology stack to bring your software onto the latest devices, LavaVein has the expertise and experience to steer you in the right direction.
A clear understanding of your users’ needs, wants and workflows is critical to crafting a successful product. A clear vision is crucial to earning stakeholder buy-in. A clear design is vital to a smooth, efficient development effort. LavaVein can do the user research, the testing, the design iteration, the aesthetic refining and the vision-casting needed to create an experience and interface that bridges the gap between user desire to user delight.
With a LavaVein design/front-end team serving your developers, your software comes to life in whole new ways. Elegance, consistency and reusability are our hallmarks. We can create a design system pre-sprint 1, we can build “stub UIs” that you can just wire up or we can fully jump into your scrum teams – working tasks, pushing code and reviewing commits.
Maybe you’re not a “software company”; maybe you have a first rate dev team but no bandwidth; maybe you want to do a skunkworks project that operates outside the bounds of your normal constraints… Maybe you should let LavaVein do the whole thing! We aren’t a dev farm or a staffing service with a rotating roster of off-shore talent. We have THE BEST design-focused development resources available on the East Coast.
