We carefully craft thoughtful experiences for the web, mobile, wearables and televisions that drive business results (and dopamine releases in the brain of the user, which may be correlated now that we think about it).
OAB's experience design team is here to help you make informed decisions based on proven paradigms and then help you iterate on them, where and when sensible for your app or site. Using our knowledge arsenal of industry standards, our experience and some of our special sauce we can help you see, and make decisions based upon, the implications of each small interaction a user will have with your product and help you design an experience that optimizes for the behavior we seek to achieve.
With our team of architects, animators, creative directors, engineers, experience and interface designers working symbiotically throughout any UX design process at OAB, we will ensure your product arrives at the intersection of progressive and smart UX design, a delightful interface and clean, scalable engineering.
Whether interacting with a mobile site or app on a mobile phone or a rich web app on a 27-inch Mac, it's the small details that take a product and experience from something average to something magical. Thoughtful and purposeful design can be the difference in the level of success of your project or product, and even in some cases its very survival. With over 50 experiences designed for the web, mobile, wearables and television, our team's deliberate and iterative approach to researching, prototyping and designing your experience can make sure you make the best decisions possible and monitor and A/B test those decisions for fine-tuning.
Leveraging and iterating on well-established standards and taking the appropriate steps to make and qualify your design decisions when none exist are vital to a successful experience design process. Depending on the needs of your project, OAB can define a design process to realize your needs and work with you to brainstorm, establish personas, design wireframes and prototypes, define specifications, review your current experience if you have one), establish flows and user stories, design the final look and feel of the experience's interface (including tasty animations), conduct user and A/B testing and further iterate/fine-tune the design. Whether you are looking to design an app for an Apple Watch or TV or iterate on your web app POC/Beta or redesign your site, OAB's experience design team can help you.
We were betting on the mobile revolution since we were the nerds carrying around PalmPilots in junior high, now that we are in the thick of it we build great apps with delightful experiences and clean code.
Great execution of vision is key to the success of any product. Every app is a product - whether for your employees, users or customers - and the realization of a great design and the agility to improve upon that design quickly directly correlates to the success of that app and your investment in that app.
With over 50 iOS and Android mobile apps delivered and serving as technical advisors or full-time technical teams to over 25 of those companies across verticals such as Health, Hospitality, Finance, Media, Social, Sports and Telecom, OAB can easily integrate and begin to help your team build a great mobile app or we can be your mobile team altogether.
Oh, and a few of them have been featured in the App Store.
As we have entered an increasingly mobile centric era of interaction with our computing devices, having a strong mobile presence, as well as, the right mobile tools, are imperative to serving our customers, employees and selves as effectively and efficiently as possible while affording us the ability to affect meaningful interactions when they matter.
Like coding any piece of software, starting with the right architecture provides the foundations for coding a delightful and scalable experience. Don't get us wrong - a great product built with a half-baked architecture and some sh*t code can still go places - but is it doing everything it can? Is it as efficient as possible? Is it reliable? Is it easy to maintain? Is it as delightful to your customers and users as possible? It is likely the answer is no. That is why here at OAB we keep in mind the very finest in coding convention, method and technique, while keeping in mind the demands of your project every step of the way when coding your project.
Our versatile mobile engineering team can help you or take charge in building or iterating upon your iOS or Android app and supporting it's back-end architecture and infrastructure while helping you engineer your app for success.
We were going to CES when you were watching Power Rangers and our love for software was born from our love for hardware and electronics. We are now effectively designing and developing products in a lean manner and can help you do the same for your product concept.
Things have changed since the days where Panasonic and Sony dominated the scene, and today awareness paired with inventiveness can dramatically reduce design, prototyping and production costs, making a tiny company with a vision competitive with the titans of today.
Our One Arm Bandit Hardware Lab was officially founded in 2015 as an internal experiment to further expand our knowledge of electrical engineering, with a focus on electronics, and industrial design to see if we could achieve amazing things in amazing budgets. Since then, we have built our own OAB drones, connected thermometers and are now working on our first consumer product for a client (still in stealth mode - what up Hank).
Through this last year of experimentation, we have attained a great deal of experience in effectively building effective and lean hardware prototypes with strong and scalable industrial design, human factors and polish. Leveraging our knowledge and experience, our fused industrial design and electrical engineering practices can help you design and prototype your product concepts in a lean manner and mass produce them at your facility or advise and guide you on contract manufacturing and production in the USA or the Far East when you are ready.
Product design is the discipline and process of effective and efficient generation and development of concepts leading to new products. Here at OAB our versatile multi-disciplinary team is working hard to bring new definition to this term and can lead the charge in the refinement and development of your Electronic, IoT and Hardware product concepts from nascency to mass producible product, while applying iterative and lean product development.
Leveraging each facet of our practice, OAB can help you develop your idea into a refined and documented concept upon which a lean prototype can be built or fabricated. Enabling us to better test the design and concept, gather data and better refine the concept, design and overall product. Throughout the process, OAB’s team of architects, designers, engineers and strategists will engage with you and your team, each lending their respective expertise in interest of creating the strongest v1 of your product possible. With our web and mobile software engineering DNA, OAB will also design how best to leverage software for your product to arrive at the most efficient product design possible, designing and developing our firmware and embedded software to interact seamlessly with paired software where smart and efficient. Through effective, iterative and lean product design, prototyping, analysis and iteration, OAB can help you arrive at the right design and strategy to mass produce your product and help you do so.
We build rich, responsive experiences on robust, scalable architectures.
We've been living in the innards of the web since before we were in high school. Over the years things have evolved and having the web is a complex place where having the right team to engineer your product is invaluable.
Lucky for you, we're one of those teams and we work for clients like you.
