  6. Want to be a Better Project Manager?
    Focus on This Ability

    Within every organization I have worked in, there has been a process that has been the underlying framework for “successful” project work flow; however, following process alone might not lead to successful project execution.

  7. Employee Spotlight – Meet the Team

    With new and increasing client demands and a tremendous 2018 behind us, we’ve added a slew of new XDSers here over the past several months, from developers to strategists and producers.

This year really started in October 2017 when we (Douglas Rockhill & Shai Reichert) finally took the leap and started our own company, The Experience Design Studio. This was a leap we’ve discussed for close to ten years as we worked together across two agencies and countless projects. We worked for some of the largest agencies and brands in the world and always felt the next logical challenge was to build our own shop with a healthcare focus, and build it better than what we were seeing from the large agencies in the industry. We wanted to create a shop that was purpose-built for today’s challenges with UX and technology at our core and a focus on the complete customer journey.
