We believe that smart thinking thrives with a methodical approach.
We approach all of our engagements with one objective: To help our clients create world-class interactive experiences. Depending on who we're working with, this can mean different things.
Many of our projects include components of all three of the following services. What's the right mix for you? We'll work closely with you to craft an approach that will tackle the right problems and ensure that we get to the right answers.
Establish a clear vision
Whether you're designing a product from scratch or trying to figure out your next move, you know it's critical to have a clear sense of purpose. Our experienced consultants provide just the right blend of research, synthesis, imagination, and facilitation to help your organization establish and rally around a direction.
We start by establishing a common understanding of users and the big opportunities for making them fall in love with your product, collaboratively exploring a variety of approaches. We build off your best ideas, help clarify them, and inject our own fresh thinking.
Then we help you express the vision and build momentum behind it. By creating prototypes, videos, storyboards and presentations we allow you to vividly depict the direction you're heading to your team, customers, investors, and other important audiences.

At Cooper, we help our clients and students face the challenges of design in the real world. Stodgy textbooks and abstract design theories aren’t at the core of our approach to teaching and mentoring. Instead, we draw directly from our 20 years of experience designing products and services for companies all over the globe. No matter where you are in the product service or life cycle, we can empower you with applicable skills that you can immediately put to use in your work and teams.
Training can take three forms: mentorship from our design team during a project, Cooper U’s custom coaching and training for companies, or our Cooper U classroom courses. In all of these situations, expert practitioners will teach you the techniques, methods, and best practices we use to design products and services that delight.
