Design Consulting Projects

Client Cloud

Bringing together the best of digital for financial advisors

We helped Client Cloud design a turnkey platform to improve the online experience for financial advisors. Our design consulting team worked with Client Cloud to design and test prototypes that helped identify pain points in the financial advisory space. Together, we shaped the new standard for financial advisors in South Africa, bringing together Zoom calls and Digital signatures—with a product that can scale globally.


Building out a vision of entrepreneurial education

Naspers Labs wanted to build a mobile app that would significantly change the entrepreneurial education ecosystem. Through a series of design sprints, we designed a modern mobile app focused on micro-courses around business education. We created a flexible design system that will be reused across multiple products within the organisation, bringing consistency and clarity to Naspers Labs products.


Building out a vision of entrepreneurial education

Baotree wanted to launch a multi-user multi-app platform aiming at connecting communities to impact strategies. Starting with idea and all the way through to deployment in market, together we conceptualised the "Uber for conservation" that allowed communities to earn points through conservation tasks. As campaigns draw to a close, communities reap the benefits of conservation-focussed rewards, driven in turn by global sponsorships.
