Velociraster was approached by a startup wanting to modernize greek recruitment, specifically for fraternities. Although a younger tech oriented user base, the typical usage of technology was very sporadic; a hodge podge of technologies that work, but not in unison. Our job was to help envision a modern solution to the researched problem, and then design a product around that vision.
Many clients come to use with a solid grasp of what they are wanting built. Other times we get to be a part of that process, and we love it. Having been around so many startups, we have experiences that might prove valuable to the development of your initial idea. Whether formally or informally, we're happy to talk through ideas anytime!
Prototypes are a great way to "feel" an idea early on. Sometimes you mind can play tricks on you, or omit certain key aspects. Just simply using something with your hands can provide insights easily missed from just visualizing. Prototype sophistication can vary widely, from napkin sketch based systems to fully digitized interactive systems.
Our creative team took all the best parts of the ideation and prototyping stages and built a full professional visual platform for the product. Professional designs for every screen and every state of the application.
Let Velociraster help you explore various paths to your business model. We see many companies up close, we might have some approaches in mind you haven't thought of yet.
There are times when we are hired to design a product then to serve as technical consultants that watch over another engineering team to provide reviews or more detailed outlines of tasks.
After completing our role from ideation, through design and up to a technical strategy, our final step was to ease out into an 'on-call consultant' mode once we had assisted in helping the client establish a fluid engineering flow with their engineering team.
