WHAT WE DO
Intrepid specializes in bringing digital products to market, especially those with a consumer end-user focus. We believe that creating successful products requires understanding both the business aims as well as the market context. Over the past seven years, we have developed and refined our processes to build the best digital products for our partners, while building lasting relationships.
DIGITAL PRODUCT LIFECYCLE
The first step in working together is comprehending the digital product lifecycle and understanding where you are.
Every great product starts as a problem to be solved. At Intrepid, we have a dedicated team of Product Strategists who work closely with clients in early product development stages. We always begin with defining the problem to ensure concept ideation revolves around a smart and appropriate solution.
DESIGN SPRINTSDesign Sprints are typically two-week engagements that leverage a structured ideation process originally devised by Google Ventures. Design Sprints focus on a specific problem or idea, then iterate on the best possible ways to solve it. Our strategists work with your stakeholders to visualize and validate the ideas generated, so you can move forward confident in your product decisions.
DISCOVERY & DESIGN
At Intrepid, many of our engagements begin by defining a core problem and then articulating the solution with a bold and unique app concept. Our proprietary Discovery and Design engagement will take you from problem to prototype in six weeks. You’ll come away with the app concept, user stories, app flow, wireframes, visual design and an estimate for development— everything you need to tell the why, what, and how of your app to gather buy-in from key stakeholders and start to make it a reality.
Once all requirements have been gathered, the next step is to create detailed designs. Intrepid’s team of designers is highly trained in both user experience and user interface design. We pride ourselves on creating applications that are not just highly functional, but beautiful.
Additionally, Intrepid offers services to help redesign existing products, as well as create new brands using our best-in-class Design Sprint processes.
PRODUCT BRANDING SPRINTSOur two-week branding sprint leverages our Design Sprint methodology, exploring the context of your company, your audience, and your criteria for success. We’ll generate several concepts to complement your identity. Those concepts are combined into deliverables which can then be used to enhance your future product.
Our delivery teams have Quality Assurance analysts at every stage of the process, because we believe quality is central to a successful product, and that a high-quality product is not optional. We set aside time for testing, polishing, and refining for every product developed in-house.
Intrepid also offers code audits and ad-hoc design and development services for clients who approach us in later stages of their product lifecycle.
Intrepid’s clients know they can count on our team, even after product launch. We have dedicated maintenance to ensure your products are secure and bug-free. We also recognize the importance of being technologically relevant; Intrepid can help you utilize the latest frameworks and platform advances so your product stays up-to-date.
We also offer maintenance for products that Intrepid did not create, for clients who need that higher level of service.
