About DesignMap

DesignMap designs web sites, web-based and desktop applications, and
supports in-house product development teams that do the same.

We are Designers, not Artists. We believe in Logic. We develop
Systems. We know that to be successful our design must not only be
delightful and innovative but also viable and buildable. This
balanced methodology is what makes us tick, and what make us
passionate about design, your business and your users.

We know that any product we design must be delightful and intuitive
and buildable and viable. Finding perfection in this balance is what
makes us passionate about design, your business and your users.

We start our engagements by deeply understanding our client's
problems, issues and information. Then we create a visual record of
our understanding to get shared agreement on the problem, the goal,
and the solution. Then we put our skills and services together in a
way that meets the client's particular needs.
