Our integrated design approach

Discover

When you partner with us, you benefit from the insight and expertise of our award-winning design team throughout the entire lifespan of your project.

During the discovery phase, our designers work with you to understand, uncover and verify your pain points, truly getting to know you and your organisation while establishing a cultural fit to optimise the process.

By challenging client assumptions, interacting with stakeholders and verifying user needs throughout, the team ultimately works to agree on a tailored approach that allows them to frame and overcome challenges.

Over the years, this approach has helped our partners unlock new ways of thinking and approaches to their problems through explorative and unconstrained product design. Our philosophy of integration with your team ensures a constant focus on your business goals as well as the opportunity to lend hedgehog lab’s experience in product roadmap development. Deliverables from discovery exercises can include the creation of a visual identity, branding, user interface, prototype, marketing materials, a discovery deck and more.
