Strategy-Driven, Agile, Design Thinking
Strategists, project managers, and developers work together throughout our process to understand objectives, test our products, and deliver successful eCommerce platforms.
Working with Adage
Working with the Adage team you can expect us to ask a lot of questions. We start by seeking understanding of you and your audiences. We build a strategy on this foundation of understanding. Our strategy results in an engagement vision statement called an organizing idea. Organizing ideas are user-focused and goal-oriented. Vision drives execution in establishing strong goals and measurable outcomes. We are agile, human-centered, design thinkers.
Thrive in a digital world.
Our team partners with you to solve business problems and meet meaningful goals.
“Our previous website was the cause of frustration for users and also for web admins. With the redesign and stronger integration capabilities, we have seen a rise in time spent on the website and also fewer complaints regarding where items can be found.”Lily SnyderAAPD Web and Social Media Manager
Our Practice Areas
As strategic partners, we leverage a complete toolbelt across disciplines. We work collaboratively with you to find the best solutions. We think there’s value in bringing people together and sharing knowledge across disciplines. For us “our practice” means “our process” is always getting stronger. We use agile values and design thinking to drive our approach.
Every engagement begins with strategy. Our strategy practice leads our design thinking approach. We know a people-first approach leads to the most transformative outcomes. We are experts in leading transformational strategy initiatives for digital transformation. From agile, to analytics, to user research and discovery, and content strategy we draw from our diverse backgrounds to create behavior-changing digital experiences.
User Experience Design
Our human-centered design focuses on people first. Multidisciplinary teams of strategists, designers and developers collaborate on concepts and challenge ideas. We build and test prototypes with end-users and stakeholders, learning from each iteration. Prototypes capture user needs and allow for rapid iteration before investing in fully realized software.
Adage branding services are “digital” first, and result in a holistic design and brand system that works well across devices, screens, and print. We also consider digital accessibility and logo responsiveness (scaling of logos for devices). Our brand practice helps organizations with one brand and many brands establish brand architectures that will support the best user experiences.
We develop websites with one goal in mind: to exceed expectations. The platforms we build operate at peak performance and our team is dedicated to the seamless integration of your site’s existing systems. Our code is reliable, managing over $2 billion annually in ticket sales the top-performing arts organizations in the world. Our developers have performed over 250 custom integrations, and we’re always up to the challenge if you have a new one in mind.
We are data-driven, using analytics to create persona-based, journey-centered, solutions. Focusing solely on quantitative data ignores intuition, storytelling, and emotion. Great platforms are built on a keen understanding of audiences and personas. We help clients use data to inform their digital strategy.
Our project managers (PMs) create a culture of clear accountability, foster a network of support, and act as a project advocate. To keep our projects moving at an efficient clip we deliver in bite-sized chunks. Project managers walk with you every step of the way to determine how you want to prioritize based on constraints like time, budget, and business value.
