What we do
Hostile Sheep spent 6 years refining a revolutionary approach to experience design. We don’t believe in a perfect test or perfect design; Hostile Sheep strives to get in front of real users as quickly as possible. In some cases, as quickly as one week. We focus on identifying needs then defining experience design standards. Our new consulting service Hostile Sheep On-Call allows our team to stay involved throughout the entire project, to see the product make it to market.
We know digital products aren’t static, so why do we build information architecture documents (such as wireframes) that focus on the ‘launch state’? Change and product evolution happens, and Hostile Sheep believes design patterns can be used to ensure your digital product evolves smoothly and seamlessly. We focus on identifying and rationalizing strategic design guidelines in three, progressively more detailed, levels of fidelity:
The lowest level of fidelity deals with systems, journeys, and model-design. We define the product vision, service blueprints, product roadmaps, success criteria (KPI and OCR), and personas or profiles. Strategic design relies on existing user research, testing, and data.
We focus on developing a pattern-based design system that serves as a foundation for governing the evolution of a digital product. We use this system to build a selection of wireframe pages and options. We equip our clients with everything they need to evolve their product as need change.
Sometimes a design system and wireframes just aren’t enough. Once we have a design system and wireframes, we have the resources to produce a comprehensive prototype (static or clickable) in as little as one week. These include functional annotations or a functional specification.
