What are your areas of focus as a UI/UX and web design agency?
User experience is more than a capability for us. It’s at the core of everything we do here at Action8. We started as a Web design agency focused purley on Website Design but quickly expanded our offering to web applications, enterprise software, and emerging technologies such as AR/VR and wearables. The UX projects we take on range from building a new product to redesigning an existing app or legacy business software. We do everything you might need to bring a successful digital product to life: user research, product strategy, user interface and user experience design, usability testing, prototyping, and development.
It’s no surprise that our web design clients are often the same companies who hired us for UI/UX projects, because who can explain the product better than the people who designed it? We’re a web design company that believes a great website should efficiently convert visitors to customers while providing a delightful experience that’s true to the brand. Good UX leads to higher conversion rates. That’s why we have UX designers collaborate with web designers on all website projects.
What separates Action8 Media from other UX, Web Designers?
We get this question a lot. There are many competent UX agencies in Hertfordshire and London and even more globally. It’s hard to be different when the standard is so high. So how do we stand out? First and foremost, it’s the quality of our work and the craft it takes to make it. The digital products and interfaces we create are easy to use, look great, and represent your brand in the best way possible. Then, it’s the people who make your project a reality. We always assign a multidisciplinary team of senior designers, developers, and other specialists led by one of our design directors and over seen by a co‑founder. Finally, unlike most traditional user experience design companies, we combine creative and product design capabilities under one roof and on the same project. Imagine a branding firm meets a UX consultancy — that’s us.
Can your agency help me with web design and development?
Yes, we can. We’re world‑famous for creating marketing websites that meet our clients’ goals by merging brand storytelling and award‑winning web design with the latest and greatest web technologies. Our sites convert well, and people share them like crazy ,which helps us get new clients who are already huge fans of our work. With each new project,we challenge ourselves to try something new, like improving our processes to optimise costs or simply work faster without losing quality.
Do you do branding or should I hire a separate branding firm?
Yes, we do. We position ourselves as a new kind of branding agency focused on tech companies, digital products, and direct‑to‑consumer brands. But that doesn’t mean we can’t help you create a visual identity for a coffee shop like we did for Joe & The Juice .Our capabilities include research, brand strategy, logo design, visual identity, communication design, motion design, and style guide development, among other things. However, our clients often provide us either with a brand strategy or even a complete visual identity package. In these cases, we use the current brand foundation as a starting point, not just carefully applying it to whatever we’re designing but making sure we extend and enrich the brand while staying true to its roots.
Do you work with startups? If so, how can my early‑stage company afford you?
As a Hertfordshire and London UX design agency, we partner with startups big and small all the time. What can be better than helping founders bring to life ideas the world has never seen before? We enjoy a fast‑moving environment that challenges our skillset and process. The ultimate achievement for us is seeing our startup clients grow and take over the world. We worked with Uber when they were a team of ten and helped design such iconic products as Path and SendGrid. We have special discounted rates for startups we believe in. Email us to learn more.
How can I get a proposal for my project?
Please send us an email first with a quick summary of your project or an RFI/RFP. We usually reply within 24 hours to schedule an introductory call and ask any immediate questions. During our first call, we will ask a lot of questions about the project goals, audience, budget, timeline, and other essential details. We can sign an NDA if necessary, but we always treat all client conversations as confidential. After the call, we may request various documentation such as a design brief, project requirements, past designs, etc. If we’re redesigning an existing product, we’ll want to schedule a demo or try it ourselves. We will email you a proposal and can schedule a video call to walk you through it. The proposal will include a detailed description of our approach, project phases, activities, and deliverables, team composition, and relevant case studies.
