Consulting services

We also offer consulting services to select clients. We have a broad range of skills and can help with everything from app development to print design.

What we know

We’ve been working on the web since it was in its infancy. Over that time, we’ve picked up a whole range of different skills that we’re constantly sharpening.

Want an accessibility audit? We can do that. UX and user research? Sure. A React app plus an accompanying API running on AWS? You got it. What about a design system built from scratch? You get the idea: we’re here to help you kick ass.

I’ve worked with Sarah at both HB Studios and Triggers and Sparks. She is an extremely talented and hard working graphic designer. She is a perfectionist at heart and tries to do whatever she can to make her clients happy and make their sites beautiful. She also has a remarkably strong technical background for a designer and is able to develop robust sites using the latest web technologies. I worked as a frontend programmer to her graphic design at HB and her skills, perfectionism and technical knowledge made my job so much easier. I can’t imagine another graphic designer that I would prefer to work with.

The company we keep

Here’s what you can expect of working with us:

  • Frequent status updates. Communication is what makes or breaks a project.
  • Clear milestones, ownership, and deliverables. Setting expectations up-front and having clear lines of delivery makes for a smoother, more pleasant experience.
  • Friendly, open, and transparent communication. It’s easier to be straightforward about concerns, delays, improvements, or suggestions. When we each respect one another’s time, we can get more done.
  • Zero bullshit. We don’t believe in busywork, complex hierarchies of middle-management, or needless meetings. Instead, we’re going to focus on getting things done and getting them done well.
  • Agility and pragmatism. We aren’t dogmatic about things, and we don’t believe in one-size-fits-all solutions. Instead, we’ll work with you to determine the technologies, tools, and process that best fits your needs.
  • A stress-free launch day. We know launching a product is a big deal. We’ll be on call for you all day, taking care of anything unexpected that comes up. That way, all you need to do is sit back and watch the compliments come rolling in.
