We work with museums and archives on beautiful, user-centered digital projects for web, mobile, and in-gallery exhibit interactives. We strive to build projects that educate and empower, and we know that a digital project is just one part of your bigger vision.
We think things through, from start to finish—and beyond. We’ve crafted thoughtful processes for everything from quality assurance to team building to post-launch maintenance plans, and we hold regular retrospectives to make sure our work meets our standards and our standards meet our values. We’ve been commended for our ability to listen, to facilitate collaboration, and to explain our recommendations thoughtfully. We want you to know what to expect, and we want to exceed your expectations.
We like learning, and we hope you do too. We’re excited to learn about your work and your mission, and we believe in learning directly from your users, from hands-on prototyping with your audiences to user testing. We support our team’s curiosity through an education stipend and dedicated learning time. And we’re eager to share what we’ve learned with our communities through our blog, free webinars, and the Interactive Mechanics Fellowship Program.
Building user-centered projects means working to understand your team and your users, and working together to build comprehensive, inclusive solutions that incorporate WCAG Level A accessibility standards at a minimum. It means working to understand the big issues in museums, in tech, in all the communities we impact. It means we’re passionate about equity and empathy. User experience is about more than just an end product—it’s a process and a practice that has become the core of everything we do.
