A Thing Design is a full service web design, web development, and social media marketing studio. We make the things for our clients’ things. We work closely with clients to tell their stories. We design the aesthetics and interactions to engage audiences in meaningful ways. And we build organized digital infrastructures to support - and grow - along with the products, companies and people we work with.
Measure twice, cut once. Our process is an iterative and deliberate one. We start with investigating ideas, and then formulate possibilities for organizing and expressing them - until the best ones emerge. Those formulations grow into both structural and aesthetic sketches that, once perfected, serve as the cores of a projects design and infrastructure. The structural sketches (wireframes) merge together with the aesthetic sketches (logo, color scheme, fonts) as the basis for a static simulation of the project: mockups. Mockups perfected turn into an interactive and functional front-end. Dynamic elements and database form the back-end that ties everything together and empowers clients to manage projects after launch.
