User experience design or user-centered design is a holistic approach to designing interactive systems. In order to successfully design interaction for an intuitive use, the requirements of the user and the context of use have to be known and included in the development. All our methods are geared to this process model.
We uncover, how and in which context your users use your product or application.Case Study Swisscom
We ensure that your product really meets the requirements of your users by evaluating it with real users in a usability-test (with eye tracking).Case Study DPD
We fathom what your users really want while not loosing track of the company’s requirements.
The agile and repetitive development of visual prototypes establishes a shared basis for discussion for all project participants as well as a basis for the early involvement of users.Case Study Dematic
Do you plan on optimizing or developing an interactive product?
We will be happy to support you in the user-centered development of a user interface, thus designing it to be user-friendly and intuitively usable. We will advise you free of charge and at no obligation on how to involve us in your project.
By prototyping we mean the early visualization and iterative optimization of a user interface (rapid prototyping). The benefit of this agile approach: We can obtain early feedback from all project participants and especially from users (e.g. on different alternatives) and easily correct designs. Furthermore we thereby establish a consistent basis for discussion and prevent misunderstandings. According to the project demands, the prototypes can come with interaction and different levels of detail.
More about Prototyping
Documented wireframes or a completely developed interactive prototype can be the results of a final concept. You can of course define the level of detail and formality for the documentation.
By systematically involving the users in the design process from the start we can spare you expensive design flaws and unpleasant surprises.

“The in-house seminar, ‘Usability as a success factor’ conducted by usability.de helped us to practically examine the topic usability and helped us define tools and methods for our projects. Everybody, from the developer to the designer, was delighted by the convincing, descriptive and entertaining workshop. After the seminar, we actively integrated usability into our work flow. We are looking forward to further successful cooperation with usability.de.”
“Usability and web development from a single source: usability.de’s user-centered design strategy was the very thing for us.
