A playful design studio with a
human-centric approach
to digital products creation

Two of us were starting the company, but the name can be understood also as cooperation between two sides of the project.

The playful design is something that drives our thinking. Someone may say it is just another word for gamification, but we are far from that. It is our creative method on the verge of software and game development.

Some want to stay hungry, others to stay foolish, but our main principle is to stay empathic. You are happy, we happy.

What We Did

Selection of our projects that we are allowed to show.

Our method

Our design method emerges from game development. We believe that the whole user experience field has common roots with game design - overall, the first level of Super Mario Bros. is a perfect example of how to onboard a user into the new software.
All in all, we can dig into all of the following areas at once, or do them independently. Your call.

RESEARCH

qualitative and quantitative
experimental and experiential

DESIGN

player/user-centered design
low and high fidelity protypes
MVP boss fights
Machine Learning fireworks

EVALUATION

expert audit
reporting
long-run analysis

Machine Learning image recognition

Walking the bleeding edge of Machine Learning (including Deep Learning) complemented with latest development in classical methods is our way to stay ahead of the game in our Data Science endeavours. Our latest project was confocal microscopy image analysis for innovative biotech company.
