From initial sketches and wireframing through to prototyping and UX validation, our designers are ready to help you realise your product and deliver the best user experience.
Our agile development teams work in weekly sprints, demos and releases for continuous lean delivery so the client sees their product’s rapid evolution from day one.

We believe that instilling software development best practices is fundamental to the performance and success of your technical team. At Elemental Concept, we subscribe to agile and scrum methodologies. Scrum has revolutionised the way many companies work and has the power to motivate workers, enhance workflows and encourage transparency, accountability and capability to adapt, which is essential for any modern business. Our consultants are ready to show you how to start implementing it in your own organisation.
Pillars of scrum
The fundamentals of scrum practices are Transparency, Inspection and Adaption - Enhancing workflows, driving transparency, accountability and capability to adapt.
Scrum ceremonies like backlog refinement, daily stand-ups, retrospectives and progress demos will enable your company to work in motivated self-organising teams.
Quality work fast
Scrum and Agile practices enable us to produce quality work at a quick pace, fail fast and gain invaluable learning along the way. We believe it is one of our biggest strengths.
Whether as part of a wider technology build or a stand-alone requirement, we will spend time understanding the problems you are facing on a macro and micro level and identify your desired state. We will explore how these challenges are impacting on, or restricted by, your people and associated processes in order to draw out the opportunities and possible solutions. Our audit can cover a basic compliance review or a broader review of current people practices and operating culture and consider how these are impacting on your workforce.
We may use a variety of tools and techniques to draw out the problems in order to identify the solutions and hidden opportunities.
We collaborate with your key stakeholders within the business as well as potentially conduct interviews with staff members.
Our final report sets out the current versus desired state and outline our conclusions and recommendations for your people programmes.

Our consultancy services extend beyond your people and processes into your product offering. UX has become the critical factor in the success or failure of many products on the market. No matter how fantastic your proposition or how slick your design, if your user’s journey through your product is not optimal, you will have immediately done yourselves a disservice and effectively lost yourself a large percentage of the market.
We will evaluate what is and isn’t working well, what journeys need to be rethought and what elements need to be shelved altogether.
Deep analysis of your existing content - how well it fulfils its purpose and how best to ensure the consistency of this voice through language and content.
Full report on our findings, with page by page analysis and feedback, as well as a list of detailed recommendations on how best to go forward.
Understanding your core values and proposition can underpin your brand and how you look to attract consumers. This might also determine how you relate to your staff and suppliers, as well as areas of your business as diverse as your future product roadmap, your pricing structure and go to market strategy. We believe that these areas are fundamental to every business and our consultants have great experience helping organisations create a harmonious brand identity which employees, suppliers and consumers can identify with.
How do you communicate who you are, what you do, and what your purpose is? This is central to the future of your business. We help you establish your company identity, ethos and voice.
How do your products or services help your consumers? We analyse your competitors and see how you can differentiate your offering.
Taking your core principles and value proposition forward, we help you create your unique brand identity. We create the guidelines for a relevant identity – in terms of visuals, language, attitude, tone of voice and design as required.
We like great solutions to real problems. Sometimes the right thing is to back a start-up who needs our help in building their business and who needs our experience in using a lean and agile approach to build their technology.
Having built a few businesses, we are happy to evaluate an early stage business and if we like it, exchange our services for equity. We want to be a long-term partner for a growing business and will work with them to help them grow.
