AR Design & VR Design

Merge the virtual and physical worlds for leading edge experiences.

See what opportunities exist for providing an unparalleled experience when you unleash your digital experience from the constraints of the “box”. Lead by experts in the fields of augmented and virtual reality solutions, we work with you to identify and design innovative experiences that create a rich, engaging reality.

EXPLORATION OF THE POSSIBLE

Drawing on your business objectives, insights and aspirations, we help unlock the potential of a mixed reality experience. A thorough, strategic review of competitive landscape and creative discovery of opportunities ensures that our insights will guide you towards the best approach to achieving your AR / VR goals.

CAPTIVATE & IMMERSE

Appeal to users at a functional and emotional level by creating immersive experiences that are exciting and effective. Our AR / VR design process ensures that we get it right the first time.

where to start

Understanding your AR business goals, competitive advantages, user tasks and content design are the first steps in designing AR / VR applications. We begin by talking to internal stakeholders and end users to learn about business requirements and user behaviours and needs. This knowledge provides the foundation for the development of optimal AR /VR user experiences.

how we do it

After conducting user and stakeholder research we create the content structure of the AR application: the information architecture. Then we create a high level navigational design with relevant widgets and controls that best supports user tasks, device and your environment.

This detailed interaction design is captured and demonstrates the user’s interaction with your AR step-by-step. At this point, we recommend conducting a usability test. We then create an engaging visual design solution that reflects your brand and differentiates you from your competition.

what you get

AR/VR design deliverables include design concepts, and storyboards with a clearly defined aesthetic vision, and tangible digital assets to be utilized during development of your AR/VR experience.

Solutions produced by knowledgeable AR / VR designers and researchers who understand the user’s experience and the potential with the technology will deliver you a clear competitive edge.
