What we do

User Experience Design

We design user-centred websites which give organisations a serious competitive edge. By understanding your business and listening to your customers, we create beautiful interactive experiences that deliver. User experience design means…


Learning about your users and customers

We perform user research, using informal interviews to bubble up needs and attitudes. We create personas and user scenarios, and work with you to devise informed feature lists and design decisions.

Gathering data

Optimising your web presence for business goals

We listen to the needs of your organisation by running cross-team workshops, analysing competition and performing design games to provide a user-centred strategy leading to significant return on investment.


Shaping the structure of your website

Information architecture is our key to designing an efficient and useful structure for your user interface. We delve into our toolbox of innovative techniques to make your website easy to navigate and information quick to find.


Designing simple solutions to complex problems

The core to UX design is optimisation of the user interaction. We formulate and iterate designs from sketches to mock-ups and fully interactive prototypes, working towards simple and delightful experiences.


Creating a beautiful, engaging and memorable experience

We design stunning and effective websites which work across the many media of the web. We create flexible designs with borderline obsessive attention to detail in grids, typography, colour and interactivity.


Evaluating, testing and re-testing with real people

We perform usability tests throughout the design process. Our approach to guerilla usability testing is a low cost, high impact way of observing problems and uncovering desires early on preventing wasted subsequent effort.

Marking up and styling

Building a fast and future-proofed website

We believe in the philosophy of web standards, accessibility, progressive enrichment and microformats. This results in bullet proof websites that work for everyone and are easy to implement and maintain.


Analysing, iterating and improving

The launch or redesign of a website is the beginning of the story, not the end. We provide ongoing support, analysis and strategy towards improving and adding to existing functionality based on real world use.

Did you know that we also…


We offer a range of website ‘health check’ services for our clients. This is sometimes prior to a new site launch or a redesign, but often as a standalone service.


Give a man a fish and he can eat for a day. Teach a man how to master CSS, Ajax, prototyping, or usability testing, and fish seem deeply uninteresting by comparison.


We speak about all this stuff at events big and small around the globe, including our own conferences.


So far, ’Lefties have published half a dozen books with more to follow.

Oh and we’ve also made some software!


We developed this nice little app to help us with guerrilla usability testing.
