Banking, finance and insurance

We've worked in the banking, finance and insurance sectors for over 10 years, researching and designing experiences from share trading to everyday banking.

We’ve  worked with some of the biggest names in the industry like ASB, AiA, nib and Westpac, helping them deliver rapid step changes in their customers’ experiences while lifting their internal capability and agility.

Tertiary education

Having worked extensively with Auckland University and the University of Canterbury over the last 10 years, we have a deep understanding of the issues and challenges facing the tertiary education sector. This work includes developing customer experience strategy, establishing best practice innovation methods and designing new digital user experiences.

We've designed, prototyped and specified a wide range of digital experiences including sophisticated student administration and enrolment systems. Beyond digital, we've delivered strategic customer experience frameworks to prototype, test and refine student services and physical spaces resulting in experiences that meet the real needs of learners, while creating a fit for purpose customer-led operational environment.

Aviation and travel

We’ve got the aviation and travel industry covered, from booking to billing and the inflight experience, thanks to our extensive experience that includes interviewing hundreds of airline customers, completing fly-alongs, and understanding what makes airports tick.

We have extensive experience working alongside global leaders in passenger service experiences, airport operational software, inflight entertainment systems and retail travel experiences.

These insights into the industry’s complexities coupled with a deep understanding of the customer experience and operational environment provides a unique perspective that drives innovation and measurable improvement to both.


Our experience in the public transport sector has been honed from five years as Auckland Transport’s strategic design partner. We've led customer experience strategy and product strategy and designed and improved many of the experiences that thousands of commuters use everyday. We’ve worked alongside Auckland Transport to help it transition to being a customer-centric organisation that’s driven by deep insights into its customers and their behaviours.

We also work in the private sector on complex applications that support fleet management, courier services, logistics and real time network management, simplifying complex domains into intuitive digital experiences.


Our team includes Senior Consultants who cut their teeth in the agritech space over a decade ago. In the last 2 years we’ve been leading UX research and design projects for Ballance Agri-Nutrients including interviews with New Zealand farmers across the horticulture, arable, dairy, and sheep and beef sectors. Strategically, we’ve developed digital customer experience frameworks that identify customer and business opportunities to inform product roadmaps.

For clients in the agriculture space with low digital and UX maturity, we help translate customer needs into specified experiences that provide development teams and your business with more clarity and confidence as you move into the build phase.

Physical and retail

For over 10 years we’ve been applying our best practice CX and UX methodologies to the built environment, helping our clients understand the operational and CX implications of a proposed architectural design, or helping them evaluate the performance of an existing physical experience.

Our extensive physical and retail experience includes combining our work in live environments with virtual reality, 3D renders and cardboard representations of the built environment to engage with users of the space and using their insights to inform design and operational decisions.
