A flexible, iterative approach to creating successful user experiences.

Cabengo’s approach is collaborative and iterative. Driven to create designs that are usable, useful and beautiful, we partner with clients to translate raw ideas into rich digital experiences. We work closely with the client team through a series of phases in which we progressively define and develop the project. We begin by listening. We find out what’s working and what’s not. We identify business goals. We find out who the key audiences are and what they need. We validate assumptions by talking to actual users. We look at the competitive landscape for opportunities and inspiration. From this initial research we build a digital strategy that informs every aspect of the project going forward, from requirements and architecture to creative strategies and technical solutions. Throughout, we remain flexible and opportunistic, guided by what we discover in and through our well-honed process.

Agile teams led by seasoned professionals.

Cabengo’s selective practice ensures exceptional work and a high level of client service; principals are always hands-on, and project teams carefully tailored to match client requirements. For larger projects, we draw from a specialized community of artists, architects, designers, illustrators, engineers, photographers, video editors, writers, animators, and musicians. Whether the team is composed of three or thirty, collaboration drives our process. This discipline of creative exchange creates a wildly generative and nurturing context for inventing new forms and producing meaningful and enduring work.

Details, details, details.

We are meticulous about our craft and always go the extra mile for excellence.
