We take a common sense approach, firmly placing user experience at the heart of everything that we create. We love technology, but not for technology’s sake. We believe that the solutions we produce should be accessible wherever your customers wish to find them, which is why we develop across all platforms from web to mobile, iPhone to iPad and beyond.
Some of the best digital concepts have started as a sketch on paper, a diagram on a whiteboard, or a doodle on a napkin. Nothing gets us more excited than starting with a chat and some free-thinking with our clients to better understand their needs. Our team will capture the output from the meeting and present back proposed solutions. We will refer to the established objectives throughout development of the solution.
To the common team, design is about much more than just the visual effect. We create wireframe layouts to design the overall function of a solution, which are tested for usability and further modified before progressing to the actual visual design stage.
User experience is strongly affected by first impressions, and visual design is fundamental in creating the right impression. The common team knows what’s hot in current interactive design trends and more importantly what’s not hot. We love to be creative to ensure our visual designs stay fresh but supportive of our clients’ brand and objectives.
It’s not enough that something always works. It’s not even enough if it’s stunning to look at as well. The common team knows that really great products have to be simple for everyone to use. By keeping the needs of the user at the centre of our design process we ensure our solutions are right for our clients’ end users.
It is important that the common team stays up to date on the latest advances in technology, that way you don’t have to. That said we don’t believe in technology just for technology’s sake… It really must enhance the user experience and add value to our clients’ proposition. We believe that our solutions should be accessible from wherever your customers want to access them and each interaction should be as rich as any other.
Common was founded in 2005 and we’ve been working hard ever since. We have steadily grown and expanded the team, ensuring that we all share a common goal – a focus on excellence.

We’re a passionate bunch, who love getting our hands dirty and immersing ourselves in finding the best solutions, whether it’s a client iPhone project or new ways to streamline making the team a cup of tea!
