Tonic3 is not a fan of the ivory tower “we’ll get back to you in 6 weeks with our genius ideas” approach. Instead, we believe in making joint discoveries – you know your business, and we know UX, together we can achieve great insights. We will clearly define the research options available to you, both for branding and digital applications, recommending those which deliver “the most bang for the buck.” Unlike some other firms, our research deliverable is not a report; it is an accurate, concise, action plan we together can implement quickly.
User experiences are all about delivering concise, meaningful messages to the right user at the right time. A clearly defined strategy — knowing what to show, and when to show it — is the basis of everything else we do. UX and Content Strategy is not a box to check, it is a touchstone which must be referenced in every other phase of work.
“I just wanted to let you know that high on my list of highlights for 2016 was the opportunity to work with you and your team on various projects. I enjoyed the creativity and quality of the work your team produced, but I definitely enjoyed most feeling part of the Tonic3 family. Every minute spent with you and your team, whether in Lewisville or Chicago was enjoyable.”
– Eric Fowler | Managing Director, Product Management, Envestnet
Great interaction design is based on sound research and strategy. Once we know what your customer needs and what he is doing when he needs it, then meaningful design work can start. The goal? To design an interface so intuitive that your customer barely notices the steps required to complete a task.
From the moment we start working with you, we will be building prototypes. We ask customers what works, what doesn’t. We make changes, build more variations, and then we ask again. Repeat. Again, there’s no “ivory tower” genius here; genius is about hard work and good questions.
“Tonic3’s UX team is both knowledgeable and flexible. The team worked with me to understand and translate data from user testing to build great solutions both from a usability perspective as well as a fit within the constraints of our CMS and branding guidelines.”
– Brian Hood | Director of Digital Marketing, Intuit
There is much more to Visual Design than creating pretty pictures. Our UX Designers are not only gifted at visual work, but are also quite knowledgeable about code. We work closely with Developers (yours or ours), to ensure our designs are technically feasible and can be quickly implemented on your existing systems. In a world with multiple browsers, platforms, and devices design must achieve elegance and never sacrifice functionality.
One beautiful upside of working with Tonic3 is that we’re a division of W3 - an international digital shop of 150+ coders, architects, project managers and infrastructure teams who can build nearly anything with a byte. So once the design is complete, we can build it - and be accountable for execution. We can work with your development team, with our development team, or any combination that makes sense for the project. The point is, we’re accountable and here for the long-term.
