Problem, limitations, solution

Venture Scanner needed to evolve their brand and user experience in order to fully communicate the superior nature of the product and to better differentiate from competitors.

Because the decision-making team was small and needed to stay focussed on critical business functions, finding the right balance of speed and thoughtfulness was critical.

By orchestrating well planned input (e.g. mood boards, work sessions, design presentations, etc.) at the beginning, and continuing throughout the engagement I was able to accurately deliver the results the company needed.



A critical part of the lead capture and conversion process, we A/B tested several variables and versions.
