Designing for user experience
To us, UX is far more than designing apps.
We specialise in designing interfaces that transcend the boundaries of what is physical and what is digital. Our multidisciplinary team are perfectly placed to design compelling products and services that exist in both the physical and digital world.
Our integrated approach combines designers, researchers, human factors, with software and hardware engineers to deliver experiences from future facing concepts right through to production support.
We start by considering how information and interaction add value to individuals and overall system performance. This leads to a detailed exploration of what information is required, when, where, who it should be displayed to, and in what format. The objective is to ensure that the information provided allows users to be more engaged, effective, efficient, safer and happier. We apply the same rigorous approach to all forms of information display whether they are physical interfaces, embedded displays, smartphone apps, or voice-based systems.
In different contexts
DCA's team works to deliver pixel perfect interfaces that are evidence driven. We work across a full range of platforms and have developed a unique suite of tools that enable us to develop GUIs flexibly, iteratively, and quickly, even for the most basic embedded hardware platforms.
In safety critical settings
We understand what it takes to design for safety critical, highly regulated applications.
In collaboration with users
We have the in-house skills to prototype embedded devices on representative hardware and develop corresponding Android / iOS / web applications to bring interactions to life.
