Services

Think of us as your special ops design team - tackling your most pressing UX/UI design challenges. Whether you are adding a new feature, a new product, or redesigning an existing product, we will help set you up for success.

Product Strategy is a primary service that Neuron provides their clients.

Product Strategy (SPARC)

Every UX/UI design project at Neuron begins with a phase that we call SPARC, which stands for Strategic Planning, Audit, and Research Compilation. SPARC consists of a comprehensive discovery phase to uncover your business needs and product requirements, followed by a strategy phase where we make sense of our findings from discovery, define and scope the features, and develop a plan for execution.

  • UX/UI Audit
    If you have an existing product, we’ll evaluate it to understand the offering and how it serves business objectives and project goals. This includes an assessment of usability, clarity, and ease of task completion, use of design elements, and more. The output includes a prioritization matrix that considers not only the impact of a recommended change, but also the effort.
  • Workshops
    Our first task is to establish a strong understanding of your business, vision, and project goals. To do this, we’ll meet with your various internal teams in a series of workshops, from product to marketing to sales to data & analytics and more.
  • User Research
    Through a combination of user interviews and analytics, we will develop a picture of who your users are, and what needs and goals they have.
  • Competitor Analysis
    It is important to understand the players that exist in the space and what their value proposition is to inform your competitive advantage. Looking at the similar products in the market is necessary to determine which features are table stakes and where the opportunities lie.
  • Cardsorting & Feature Prioritization
    At this point we’ve defined each feature that needs to be added or updated, but deciding the order in which to tackle these features is just as important. A prioritization matrix is a great framework to objectively decide priorities. Each feature is plotted on the matrix according to its estimated value (the benefit to the user or your business) and effort (what it takes for your organization to deliver the feature). Features in the upper-left are Quick Wins – the low-hanging fruit to be tackled with top priority. Features in the lower-right are Time Sinks – initiatives that should be fully deprioritized.
  • Information Architecture
    Using the insights gathered from our design research, we begin organizing, structuring, and labeling content. An effective information architecture is one that makes it easy for users to find information and complete tasks.
  • Design Roadmapping
    Building off the feature prioritization, we will build out a design roadmap for the project. The roadmap lays out the design tasks in detail for each 2-week sprint to provide clarity to you on what will be completed and by when. The roadmap is designed to be a living document that will evolve to reflect updated priorities over time.
  • Persona & User Journey Mapping
    We will create personas as a consolidation of expansive customer archetypes that are most likely to use your product. Expanding beyond who your users are, we’ll look to define their user stories – how they use the product and why. This exercise will articulate all the touchpoints, while surfacing possible pain points and opportunities.
  • Delivery & Hand-off
    We will provide all required hand-off assets using Figma, a cloud-based digital design and prototyping tool. This is a useful repository for both specs and annotations, which will help the product management team to define acceptance criteria.
  • Wireframes & Flows
    We create schematic drawings to define page layouts and interactions. It is important to consider key interactions at a wireframing fidelity to remove the bias of visual aesthetic and focus solely on the intended user journey.
  • Interaction Design
    Effective, usable products account for all the ways elements interact with each other. We will also consider the ways in which motion and animation design can improve the experience and bring the product to life.
  • User Testing
    We believe users are a critical asset to the design process. By engaging real users with user testing we gain insights not likely to be offered by stakeholders or project team members. In addition to usability testing and interviews, we can engage users to provide valuable feedback on wireframes and perform user acceptance testing (UAT).
  • Visual Design
    The interface’s visual design is our first opportunity to pull new users in. We draw upon the findings of the discovery phase to produce a beautiful, engaging, and easy-to-use interface that reflects the tone of the brand.
  • Animated Video
    If the need arises, we can produce videos of advanced in-product animations to convey design intent to the development team. We can also create highly polished videos of the interface in action for use in marketing material to succinctly convey a value proposition and attract users.
  • Clickable Prototypes
    We design and test prototypes in order to learn, iterate, and improve our clients’ products. By testing prototypes of varying fidelity we can test hypotheses and identify new questions, pain points, or opportunities long before our solutions are launched.
  • Component Library
    The component library documents the repeatable UI components, principal UX patterns, and rules guiding their usage.
  • UI Style Guide
    The UI style guide brings cohesion to your product’s interface by setting the standards for typography, color, and responsive grid systems, serving as a key for your development team.
  • How do you work with clients?
    We don't design products in isolation, our goal is to co-create with you, ensuring that every solution aligns seamlessly with your needs and aspirations. To do this, our approach is centered on collaboration and flexibility, ensuring that we align with your goals and preferences for the project. We offer various engagement models, from project-based to full-scale team augmentation, adapting to your specific needs. We prioritize open communication through weekly syncs and constant availability via email, Slack, and Teams. Being a remote-first company with a global team, we accommodate your preferred time zones for seamless communication and coordination.
  • Do you work with startups?
    Absolutely! We cater to companies of all sizes, from large enterprises to budding startups. Our bread and butter is working with innovative businesses regardless of their funding stage or team size. Our tailored approach to product strategy is particularly beneficial for startups in their conception or early stages. We've collaborated with innovative startups such as RealBricks, AcuityMD, Huma.AI, and Vendr to help bring their MVPs to life with web and mobile applications designed for success.
  • What separates Neuron from other UX/UI agencies?
    We’re one of the few UX/UI agencies that focus on designing business-to-business applications and products. Our unique approach integrates logical reasoning, creative innovation, and close collaboration with our partners, ensuring that our strategies are not only visually captivating but also performance-oriented. We prioritize Product Strategy, a crucial yet often neglected stage, to meticulously craft optimal user experiences that yield tangible results and set our clients apart from their competitors.
  • Do you only work with B2B or enterprise products?
    While our expertise is in designing for B2B products, we love working on consumer-facing products too. Our track record includes successful collaborations with companies like Flo Health, GeoJam, and PS, where our methodical approach to UX design has driven measurable results.
  • What is the timeline and cost to hire your UX/UI agency?
    The timeline and cost of our services are tailored to the specific scope and complexity of your product. We offer transparent pricing through a time & materials model, allowing flexibility around evolving priorities. Our approach focuses on thoughtful design rather than rushed deliverables, planning a roadmap in 2-week sprints for agile progress tracking.

Prototypes

  • UX/UI Audit
    If you have an existing product, we’ll evaluate it to understand the offering and how it serves business objectives and project goals. This includes an assessment of usability, clarity, and ease of task completion, use of design elements, and more. The output includes a prioritization matrix that considers not only the impact of a recommended change, but also the effort.
  • Workshops
    Our first task is to establish a strong understanding of your business, vision, and project goals. To do this, we’ll meet with your various internal teams in a series of workshops, from product to marketing to sales to data & analytics and more.
  • User Research
    Through a combination of user interviews and analytics, we will develop a picture of who your users are, and what needs and goals they have.
  • Competitor Analysis
    It is important to understand the players that exist in the space and what their value proposition is to inform your competitive advantage. Looking at the similar products in the market is necessary to determine which features are table stakes and where the opportunities lie.
  • Cardsorting & Feature Prioritization
    At this point we’ve defined each feature that needs to be added or updated, but deciding the order in which to tackle these features is just as important. A prioritization matrix is a great framework to objectively decide priorities. Each feature is plotted on the matrix according to its estimated value (the benefit to the user or your business) and effort (what it takes for your organization to deliver the feature). Features in the upper-left are Quick Wins – the low-hanging fruit to be tackled with top priority. Features in the lower-right are Time Sinks – initiatives that should be fully deprioritized.
  • Information Architecture
    Using the insights gathered from our design research, we begin organizing, structuring, and labeling content. An effective information architecture is one that makes it easy for users to find information and complete tasks.
  • Design Roadmapping
    Building off the feature prioritization, we will build out a design roadmap for the project. The roadmap lays out the design tasks in detail for each 2-week sprint to provide clarity to you on what will be completed and by when. The roadmap is designed to be a living document that will evolve to reflect updated priorities over time.
  • Persona & User Journey Mapping
    We will create personas as a consolidation of expansive customer archetypes that are most likely to use your product. Expanding beyond who your users are, we’ll look to define their user stories – how they use the product and why. This exercise will articulate all the touchpoints, while surfacing possible pain points and opportunities.
  • Delivery & Hand-off
    We will provide all required hand-off assets using Figma, a cloud-based digital design and prototyping tool. This is a useful repository for both specs and annotations, which will help the product management team to define acceptance criteria.
  • Wireframes & Flows
    We create schematic drawings to define page layouts and interactions. It is important to consider key interactions at a wireframing fidelity to remove the bias of visual aesthetic and focus solely on the intended user journey.
  • Interaction Design
    Effective, usable products account for all the ways elements interact with each other. We will also consider the ways in which motion and animation design can improve the experience and bring the product to life.
  • User Testing
    We believe users are a critical asset to the design process. By engaging real users with user testing we gain insights not likely to be offered by stakeholders or project team members. In addition to usability testing and interviews, we can engage users to provide valuable feedback on wireframes and perform user acceptance testing (UAT).
  • Visual Design
    The interface’s visual design is our first opportunity to pull new users in. We draw upon the findings of the discovery phase to produce a beautiful, engaging, and easy-to-use interface that reflects the tone of the brand.
  • Animated Video
    If the need arises, we can produce videos of advanced in-product animations to convey design intent to the development team. We can also create highly polished videos of the interface in action for use in marketing material to succinctly convey a value proposition and attract users.
  • Clickable Prototypes
    We design and test prototypes in order to learn, iterate, and improve our clients’ products. By testing prototypes of varying fidelity we can test hypotheses and identify new questions, pain points, or opportunities long before our solutions are launched.
  • Component Library
    The component library documents the repeatable UI components, principal UX patterns, and rules guiding their usage.
  • UI Style Guide
    The UI style guide brings cohesion to your product’s interface by setting the standards for typography, color, and responsive grid systems, serving as a key for your development team.
  • How do you work with clients?
    We don't design products in isolation, our goal is to co-create with you, ensuring that every solution aligns seamlessly with your needs and aspirations. To do this, our approach is centered on collaboration and flexibility, ensuring that we align with your goals and preferences for the project. We offer various engagement models, from project-based to full-scale team augmentation, adapting to your specific needs.

It serves as a comprehensive reference for design decisions, ensuring visual and functional harmony while expediting the design and development process.
  • How can you integrate a design system with my codebase?
    At Neuron, seamless integration of design and development is our forte! We bridge the gap between your design system and codebase, fostering a fluid collaboration between our teams for unparalleled consistency and efficiency. This entails meticulous documentation of design guidelines, crafting reusable UI components, and their seamless implementation through tools such as Storybook. By synchronizing design and code, we streamline development workflows and uphold design integrity throughout your digital product ecosystem.

Design systems catalog all the common design elements used in the interface, from color and text styles to repeated UI components. This helps streamline development and serves as a source of truth to ensure consistency as your product is updated and expanded in the future.

Neuron seemed to have the magic blend between operating strategically and executing tactically.

Having a partner that could collaborate with our team was very important because we needed to move quickly and take advantage of the market opportunity.

Ultimately, the project was incredibly rewarding; the product we have today wouldn’t have been possible without their involvement. They pushed us to think about some of our harder problems in new ways, which ultimately led us to be in a much better place.
