About Hostile Sheep
Hostile Sheep is a small team of 5 experience strategists, but we're growing! Today, we have one team that consists of a master design strategist and his four apprentices. This team works on every project that comes through the doors. We have a unique business model that has the team on just one project at a time. Our team can get done in a week, what takes other firms a month or more.
Hostile Sheep has a niche skill-set. Unlike other design firms, we don't specialize in every form of design, we don't do illustration, we don't do storyboards, we don't do graphic design at all. The only form of design we do is experience Design (XD). We equip product design teams with the knowledge they need to make the best design decisions possible.
By learning what outcomes people desire, Hostile Sheep can discover their true needs. This is true for end-users as much as it is for internal stakeholders. Our studies study the behaviour of people, customers, users. We're able to complete research quicker than any other firm in town.
Studies can include usability testing, user surveys, user interviews, and data analysis.
Defining Design Standards
Lets face it, wireframes and prototypes are mere guidelines for graphic designers and developers. Hostile Sheep doesn't waste time defining anything that is likely to be changed downstream. Instead, we're focused on providing the best guidance and knowledge to downstream colleagues.
Standards can include wireframes, prototypes, mental models, and much more.
Giving Design Advice
Hostile Sheep has a unique approach to consulting. Since we don't believe in hourly billing, our consulting service charges a flat-fee for each opinion & follow-up. Our clients can ask for our opinion on anything related to their product design, and we'll answer in 24hrs or less.
We answer: What do you think of..., How might we..., and Why is... questions.
