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

Customer Deep Dive
Learn more about your customer. This offering involves qualitative field research and collaborative sessions to define new opportunities and better inform current product offerings.
If an opportunity has been identified and defined we can collaborate on a creative session to look at new ideas. This would consist of tighter opportunity definition and brainstorming sessions.
Once a new idea has been created we can conduct field research and gather qualitative information on what’s working, not working and missing with a new brand, product or experience.
