What our clients say:

The value of Ruth's (the Head of UX at Sputnik) contribution to our design process and roadmap has been immensely valuable. From the very first session it helped accelerate our learning of what works for our users by an order of magnitude - we've learned things in a handful of carefully designed one-to-one testing sessions that would have taken months through our own focus groups and Alpha testing process.


Not only that, but Ruth's approach to focus on educating our team on how to create a user-centred process that is bespoke to our product means we now have this capability in house.

This has been gold dust for us, as it would be for any other mobile or digital platform.
