First, we build a shared understanding of your business objectives, whatever they may be. We then translate these objectives into actionable requirements.
The digital experience is in a continual state of change which motivates our UX / UI team to create world class websites and apps for our clients that are functional, visually compelling, and scalable. Additionally, our UX / UI designers continually strive to predict future trends and UX / UI standards.
Our UX / UI designs are based not just on aesthetics, but also on a clear framework of vision, goals, and strategy. Our approach is holistic — we evaluate your business objectives, create user personas, perform competitor research, build wireframes, and engage in rigorous user testing. Finally, we take into consideration all of your touch points ( website, mobile site, SaaS products, email campaigns, social media, webinars, packaging, sell sheets, etc ) to create a seamless experience that delivers a competitive edge. Our experienced team helps strengthen your brand presence while making use of the latest tools and technologies to ensure we deliver your website and apps on time and on budget.
Evaluate Business Goals
Research the Competition
UX / UI doesn’t exist in a silo — we study competing organizations to assess your competitive advantages. By evaluating the strengths and weaknesses of your competition, we can help you identify opportunities to better provide a superior user experience.
Create User Personas
We also know that great design requires not just cutting-edge technology, but also unparalleled empathy. By creating and analyzing your user personas, we’re able to understand the psychology and motivations of your customers, crafting a digital experience that meets their unique needs.
Solution Discovery (Phase 0)
We define your risks, integrations, dependencies, and key project constraints. We then recommend the team composition, technology stack, and architectural needs for your project. Based on these unique needs, we’ll recommend an approach to UI wireframes, style guides, site maps, and initiate rapid prototyping. Lastly, we’ll clearly define project milestones and ensure our objectives are aligned with yours.
User Experience & Interface
During the design process, there is a moment when User Experience design and User Interface design merge to create the optimal user experience. Once we have reached that moment in the design process, we begin the development process.
Develop & Test
We understand that well written code can make a world of difference. We audit your code and test your product for quality assurance and usability. We then obtain feedback from end-users to evaluate the success of our prototypes — we can use heat maps, usability recordings, focus groups, customer surveys, and/or live user testing days. We further refine your product while performing additional tests to ensure it meets your goals, surpasses the competition, and delights your customers.
We deploy to your staging environment for final review and approval. Finally, we launch your product and help you maintain it.

I had become familiar with the quality of Sphere’s work when I worked at Enova Finance, I chose Sphere Software to help improve the User Experience for our mobile and web clients. We are very satisfied and happy to have chosen them as our development partner. During our relationship, Sphere Software made the effort to completely understand our vision and work flows, and found a way to successfully complement our operation. Their engineers communicated well throughout the development cycles and helped us deliver the enhancements on time. They moved our project along quickly and kept us agile enough to be competitive. I would recommend them without hesitation to all looking for a development partner.
