Developing the right workflow begins with the people on the front line, those invested in getting the job done. These are the ones treading water, often gasping for air, about the time we come in.
We marry objective analysis with intuitive context, and we see top-level process issues come to light.
Once we can zero in on the big picture problems, we can redesign the processes, relationships and workflow tools you need to publish better than your competitors. Our As-Is and Should-Be Workflow Maps give definition to our solution.
We create tools that support streamlined publication production without getting in the way of creativity. Inspired by the Alan Cooper approach to interaction design, we craft workflow tools that minimize cognitive friction. This means usable, intuitive software that makes your job easier, less manual, and more fun.
