SWAVE STUDIOS USES THE PROCESS OF DESIGN TO DEFINE AND BUILD UNIQUE AND VALUABLE BRANDS, PRODUCTS, AND EXPERIENCES.

WE WORK WITH EARLY-PHASE AND ESTABLISHED COMPANIES TO DESIGN PRODUCTS & BRANDS THAT CONNECT WITH CUSTOMERS

Design Thinking

 

Examine a business challenge or

a customer segment opportunity. Apply a user centric design process to define key drivers and fertile ground. Develop new ideas with a cross-disciplinary approach. 

Brand Design

 

Define the character and values of your brand which drive the creation of logos and visual design. Your brand’s “look & feel” will convey a personality with which your customer will build a lasting relationship.

Product Design

 

Build a strategy for the goods you want to sell, physical or digital. Explore innovative ideas your customer will love and define the product lines that will elevate your business and brand.

OUR PROCESS IS USER-CENTRIC AND DESIGN DRIVEN. IT CAN BE APPLIED TO BROAD CHALLENGES, BRAND BUILDING, PRODUCT INNOVATION OR CREATING CUSTOMER EXPERIENCES.

Full process

 

We work together to define opportunity and take ideas to reality through our full process.
