We work with our clients as product partners, supporting them proactively throughout the journey from idea to launching a product and scaling it up. We believe that our expertise in strategy, design and engineering serves as a powerful set of tools for any client looking at the future of their business. Furthermore our vast industry experience enables us to partner with any client regardless of what stage they are at on their business journey.
Since our humble beginnings we have designed and built digital products for ambitious clients all over the world, and we have ventured into increasingly challenging products and services, opened new offices and branched into new industries to boot. We practice what we preach by investing resources, time and experience in startups that we are passionate about, and we learn by doing along the way.
Today Shape is still independent and widely recognised as a leading digital product studio as well as a trusted partner for some of the most renowned companies out there.
Our secret weapon is the talent and mindset of our team. Strategists, creatives and technologists, all at the top of their game, all hungry to make an impact. Leadership creates and creators lead.
Being independent allows us to pick our clients carefully. Our lean approach allows us to work within any type of organisational structure. The best work happens when we can be anti-transactional and co-create as one team.
We create change faster by focusing on great work from the start. No surprise unveilings or posturing. And we get to scale quickly and easily. The result is shorter time to market and swifter optimization.
We have delivered digital products of all shapes and sizes that consistently turn ideas into profitable businesses. Every success follows countless failures, and after more than a decade and hundreds of product and feature launches, we know what works and what does not. Along the way, we have honed our methodologies and processes to minimise costs and increase returns on investments.
No solution without understanding, so firstly we need to know everything about you and your project. That is why we ask a lot of questions to understand your customers, values, goals and challenges. Once we are familiar with the innards of your business, the objectives, milestones, documentation, specs, timelines and deliveries are defined in order to proceed.
With the objectives clearly defined we move on to explore how the hierarchy, structure, content, actions and layouts come together to form a cohesive and intuitive user journey through prototypes. Interactions, animations, colors, iconography, typography and polished pixels make up the outer layers of a meticulously designed product ready to be brought to life.
All the previous product decisions, mappings and assets come together through native mobile development, web components and backend integrations. Testing and quality control are core parts of our delivery and ensures that nothing slips between the cracks. Our internal testing team push every bit of the product to it’s limits and makes sure your product works as intended.
An essential milestone in the life of any product is the release, and we line up all the pieces for a lean launch, yet that only marks the beginning. A digital product needs continuous care through maintenance and ongoing feature updates. We keep your product running smoothly, while adding improvements based on user feedback, strategy and business objectives.
For over a decade, we have brought impactful digital products to life and while we are not in it for the accolades, it is nice to be recognised for what you do. With over 50 national and international awards and honours under our belts, it shows we are doing something right in our quest to deliver results for those we work with.
Shape is always shifting and finding our way as we make it. We have built a team of diverse and driven individuals that get up in the morning to face new and exciting challenges. That is where our values come in.
