We build websites for success and growth.

Deeper Than Design or Development

Did you know it takes about 50 milliseconds for a user to form an opinion about your website?

At UX Studio, we design, develop and build solutions that instantly engage with your audience. We go much deeper than just design to develop a comprehensive, positive user experience.

Numbers and quantitative data only tell half the story. Our digital marketing experts have 15 years of experience leveraging the power of logic and emotion. Part of our expertise in user experience includes developing customer personas for customized tactics that work.

Branded Marketing & Advertising Strategies

You've just launched your new website. What's next?

UX Studio takes the guesswork out of search marketing, pay-per-click advertising, email and social media marketing.

Our targeted marketing makes the most of your marketing dollars by attracting only the customers you want.

You get regular reports, so you know exactly what your customers are doing and when.

Support & Analytics

How do you know your website is actually doing anything?

How do you know your website is performing? UX Studio will give you detailed reports on clicks, page views, bounce rates  ̶  and so much more.  We apply analytics, metrics and KPIs to maximize your marketing budget and execute effective campaigns.

UX Studio will improve traffic by decreasing bounce rate, increasing time on site, and optimize user experience by leveraging qualitative and quantitative data. Security and performance issues are also tracked and fixed.

Each month, our experts will give you personal, customized consultations on how to improve user experience and fill your sales funnel. Without detailed monthly reports, your website is navigating without a compass.

Redesigned a Shopify theme for this apparel and lifestyle brand from Cape Cod. In collaboration with the stakeholders, we finalized our strategy, created wireframes and prototypes of the website, and our implement changes well before the launch date.

Lock & Key Wizard Image

Lock & Key Wizard

When the owner of Innovo Storage told us he was spending too much of his valuable time on the phone helping customers find the right key for their cabinets, we know he needed an application that would empower customers to do it themselves. This wizard is the result of months of research, wireframing, prototyping, design, and development of a product that's saving the owner valuable time, money, and hassle.

This is a preview of our biggest project to come. TaskRuler will be a web-based application with features such as invoicing, scheduling, booking, and so much more.

We custom-built this entire website that's dedicated to aggregating webinar platforms for users who are looking for specific platforms. We conducted months of usability tests, wireframing and prototyping to build a website that's just as easy on the eyes as it is on the mind. "Don't make me think" is our way of life.

Marine Chemist Association Image

Marine Chemist Association

Because of our attention to user needs, this growing organization of Marine Chemists from around the world has never been more connected. Based on months of careful qualitative research, we implement several solutions that have since streamlined the organization's processes and freed up the owner's time so he can focus on his business.

This Yoga and Psychotherapist in RI has a new website where people can learn more about his life-changing services, view his latest schedule, and pay for one of his many classes online.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

Can you share any outcomes from the project that demonstrate progress or success?

UX Studios Owner and Lead designer Eric Alves was amazing from the opening pitch call! He listened to our vision for our site and incorporated ideas into results. Eric's technical ability and creativity exemplified in the progress on the site on a weekly basis. Even though, we are a small start-up company, we were never treated as such and UX made us feel like a top priority.

How effective was the workflow between your team and theirs?

UX Studios was highly responsive to our emails throughout each day and set up a weekly video conference call where we could see the updated progress and work out additional details. This made the process seemless, and we got the exact results we were looking for.

Feedback summary: 

The redesigned website has provided important new functionality to the client’s audience and made the site significantly easier to navigate. The UX Studio team makes an effort to really listen to all project stakeholders and incorporate their feedback into the work that they do.

A Clutch analyst personally interviewed this client over the phone. Below is an edited transcript.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

I’m a teacher and president of the board with the Foundation for Acts of Compassion. We are an educational 501C3 nonprofit that teaches meditation and compassion practices, both in a Buddhist context and other secular contexts as well.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with UX Studio?

We had a very outdated website that was not supporting the current practices and extent of our teaching, so we needed someone to basically start from scratch and put a website together that was going to be more user-friendly and capable of a lot more functions.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

Our media section was poorly organized and didn’t have the capacity that we needed for audio and video. The site’s graphics and aesthetics were too crowded, and Eric (Founder, UX Studio) completely revamped all of those aspects, both visually and functionally, using WordPress.

He made it much easier to figure out where to go on the site, and also created some completely new sections, like an e-commerce portion where people can submit donations and a section where we could feature different news and media at the top rather than having it buried in a long, old list.

What is the team composition?

We work directly with Eric for all of our project requests.

How did you come to work with UX Studio?

Our previous treasurer’s son worked with Eric at a tech company where he had been doing the web design and UX management, and he introduced us.

How much have you invested with them?

We’ve spent close to $15,000 with him.

What is the status of this engagement?

I don’t have the exact dates, but I believe we worked on the website update from July–September 2019.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

What evidence can you share that demonstrates the impact of the engagement?

Our blog forum is picking up with increased communication among out teachers themselves with our audience, which is great to see. We’ve started to receive donations over the internet, and also have a subscription option now for people who go on retreats or come to our meditation practice sessions. We’ve gotten positive feedback on those capabilities, and from our end, everything is much easier to use.

How did UX Studio perform from a project management standpoint?

I communicate directly through Eric, but he does a great job delegating to his whole support system and keeping information flowing so that everyone is always up to date about what’s going on. It’s never gone beyond about 12 hours without him responding to any of our questions or requests.

What did you find most impressive about them?

The patience and listening skills that Eric brings to the table really add to the experience with his company. He really takes the time to make sure that we understand how they’re going forward and how everything works. He always sends very detailed proposals for all of our options so that we can make the best decision for our organization, which I really appreciate.

Are there any areas they could improve?

There aren’t any particular areas for improvement that I can think of.

Do you have any advice for potential customers?

Being as clear and comprehensive with the direction you want to move in and being able to communicate that well is extremely helpful.

A Clutch analyst personally interviewed this client over the phone. Below is an edited transcript.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

I’m the owner of a cabinet company.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with UX Studio?

We have a lot of customers who purchase additional accessories for their cabinets that we sell, specifically locks and keys. It takes a long time to discuss all the options with a customer, so we wanted an online solution such as a wizard.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

UX Studio developed a wizard that walks customers through the whole process of ordering locks and keys for their existing cabinets. Then, their team integrated the tool into our transactional website. When a customer searches for locks and keys, they’re taken right to the wizard, which walks them through a process to determine the correct lock and key for them.

What is the team composition?

Eric (Owner and Senior UX Designer, UX Studio) was our main point of contact.

How did you come to work with UX Studio?

A different developer built a customer program to create and build cabinets online. Eric did the tutorial walkthrough for that project too.

What is the status of this engagement?

The project ran from June to August 2019.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

What evidence can you share that demonstrates the impact of the engagement?

The wizard has just gotten up. The product works exactly the way we expected it to work. It’s clear and easy to use, so we’re happy. We’ve received a couple of orders through the wizard but aren’t expecting numbers to grow until we have all of our AdWords campaigns directing people to that part of the website as opposed to the traditional contact us page.

How did UX Studio perform from a project management standpoint?

As the engagement progressed, we had weekly video meetings through Zoom. UX Studio created a proposal, gave us a quote, which we accepted. Eric built a flowchart to walk us through the Wizard. As we got into the actual programming phase, he created a spreadsheet that detailed the needs at each stage and whether or not it was complete. We had the ability to click a link and view that information in real-time.

What did you find most impressive about them?

One of the more complicated parts of the project was at the end when a customer places an order. There’s an option to match a key number that the consumer has already. That gets complicated depending on how many keys they have and whether or not they want them to match existing locks. Eric developed a couple of prototypes of the key purchase page, which allowed us to see what it would look like for a customer. As we progressed, the prototypes became live so we could actually play with them and see how the process of choosing a lock with a specific key number would unfold.  

Are there any areas they could improve?

No. It took a couple of weeks longer than expected because we had artwork and detail sheets to accompany Eric’s work, which held him up.

Do you have any advice for potential customers?

Eric’s good about extracting what a customer wants, even if the customer’s not clear about it. He takes care of getting the right information upfront to create a clear path as the project moves forward.
