User Insights

Peopledesign - User Research

Value propositions start with what people value. Understanding people – customers, subscribers, influencers, stakeholders, employees – is critical for value creation today. User Research leads to better value propositions, brands, and experiences.

Brand Audits

Peopledesign - Brand Audits

An outside perspective helps teams get started. Strategic Design Audits help you move forward by reviewing current offerings, programs, and experiences. We create an actionable report to increase stakeholder alignment, build momentum, and define a path with clear next steps.

Strategy Workshops

Peopledesign - Strategy Workshop

Working directly with your team, stakeholders, and decision-makers, we facilitate Strategy Workshops to collect, evolve, and share information. Peopledesign workshops are tailored to your needs but based on experience, proven approaches, and common scenarios.
