We forge original, brand-building tools and experiences that connect.
NEWFOUNDRY IS AN INNOVATION STUDIO.
Our clients are organizations of all sizes and across industries who seek a trusted partner to activate their vision. They rely on our agile team of strategists, designers, and developers and our proven process to deliver engineered solutions that are strategic, beautiful, and smart.
We bring clarity and focus to the challenge. Working across disciplines, we immerse ourselves in the client vision, customer experience, marketplace, brand, and industry as well as the technology demands of the Big Idea. Then we synthesize our findings and create a clearly defined concept for activation.
We are specialists in design for digital, business operations, and services. We distill and translate the fundamental needs of stakeholders into a tangible prototype, then build it out to deliver intelligent design that drives real results.
We provide end-to-end services from UI/UX specification to integration and verification of application software on multiple devices and platforms. Our mobile, web, and device solutions provide value to people and brands alike.
We bring together expert viewpoints from engineering, design, and strategy on every project from start to finish. We collaborate fluidly in small teams co-located within our Ann Arbor studio, delivering solutions with the fine details attended to from end to end. The result is happy clients launching Big Ideas with confidence.
Every engagement begins with uncovering the root of the idea to expose opportunities, positioning, core messaging, and the best-fit activation plan.
Customer journeys are designed to connect the user to the brand, product, or service, then demonstrated and tested with experiential prototypes.
Designs are translated into tangible outcomes that bring the Big Idea to life as brand experiences, web and mobile applications, or other custom digital destinations.
We’ve called on NewFoundry a number of times - whenever we are looking to get an idea off the ground, and we need the right mix of skills and insight to get there. They move quickly - more quickly than a large company can - and the results are always more than we expected. Whether creating in-vehicle experiences or commercial-scale IoT applications, our outcomes are not only well-conceived, they are beautifully designed.
