The things we’ve done

We partner with businesses, VC’s, start-ups, technology firms and many others.

We’ve worked with Twitter to design for the needs of professional users. Partnered with many start-ups to help them establish their design functions. And helped companies like Babylon Health with design innovation.


Twitter

We partnered with Twitter to meet the evolving needs of professional and advanced Twitter users.

Design collaboration

We brought internal teams together through research insights and design sprints/workshops. Producing designs and innovative ideas not explored before, all of which lead to meeting the needs of professional users across Twitter products.

Research & Strategy

Our initial discovery phase led us into the heart of global news organisations where we interviewed and observed hundreds of journalists and marketeers. This produced the bedrock of insights that ultimately made the project a success.

Eleanor Harding, Product Manager at Twitter

“Marker & Box uncovered amazing insights into users which informed the design of Twitter products for professionals. Creating amazing designs and prototypes whilst coordinating teams and collaboration across the organisation.”

Design Sprints for start-ups

We introduced many start-ups to Design Sprints. We facilitated numerous sprints across all sorts of businesses allowing teams to move much faster and collaborate effectively.

Remote user testing for start-ups

Together with Forward Partners we evangelised remote user testing throughout the whole portfolio and successfully communicated the benefits via various easy to digest videos.
