Design We've been working as designers for nearly 15 years. We balance research, emerging design patterns, industry best practices and our unique experiences to design relevant, impactful and engaging solutions. We believe good design rarely occurs in isolation.
Agile Coaching We provide agile coaching at all levels. Whether you're just testing the agile waters, or looking for complete organisational transformation, we can provide an agile methodology-agnostic training package to support your goals.
Product and Project Delivery We've been called Producers, PMs and Scrum Masters. We help release your ideas into the world quickly and iteratively. We join, build and educate Agile product teams, and we manage a wide range of projects from small campaigns through to complex enterprise software.
Start-up workshop We help visionaries, pipe dreamers and seasoned entrepreneurs make their ideas tangible by identifying the most compelling bit to build first and planning realistic expectations of costs, roles and timelines required to achieve a Minimum Viable Product (MVP).
Vision workshop We'd like to help you and your team explain the ideas in your head. We sketch, collaborate and mind-meld through carefully designed workshop exercises that help us build a deliverable that you can use to pursue funding or align other stakeholders.
Pro bono Engagements Talk to us about your amazing idea that might just change the world for the better. We love to contribute our skills, experience and passions in exchange for positive outcomes and the opportunity to work with interesting people.
Jess began her career in design as an Art Director for print, radio and TV.
After several years working primarily for beauty, healthcare and aviation in the US, she shifted towards interactive design.
She started a business in NYC, called Raising Heartrates to build a community around inspiring NYC female triathletes and to support aspiring, disabled athletes.
Shortly after, Jess completed her Masters in Interactive Media with a focus on social technology’s curious ability to enhance and bridge the gap between online and offline spaces.
In 2007 she moved to lead Headshift’s UX team (later Dachis Group) where she spent the following five years designing public and private facing, social software aimed at enhancing brand and business efficiency.
Jess has worked with clients including BBC, BP, Coca Cola, Schlumberger, Yodel, HSBC and the Bank of England to name a few.
Amy fell into the web around the turn of the century as a Visual Designer and Front End Developer. As the social web evolved, Amy spent time designing and implementing content management systems, discussion and networking tools for various consumer-facing web applications.
After a period specialising in Agile Project Management and leading the Agile Project Management and Technology teams at Headshift (later Dachis Group London), Amy turned her attention to Agile Coaching.
Since 2013, Amy has worked as an Agile Coach with several UK government organisations and departments including Government Digital Service (GDS) and the Ministry of Justice Digital Services (MOJDS). Amy delivers keynote talks to UK government departments (and occasional visiting international delegates!) and works with teams to embed digital by default thinking, a user needs led approach and evidence-based delivery metrics.
Amy likes to keep her 'making' brain fresh, so is always tinkering with code, design and her independent music publisher start-up, Hookline.
Amy is currently co-writing the Minimum Viable Book, a book about Agile and Lean written in an Agile and Lean way.
