App Design


Standalone app or IoT connected experiences – PDT has designed and developed apps for both iOS and Android.

Embedded UI Design


Identifying the proper screen type, buttons, graphics, and experience for physical devices.



Physical Interactions


Not all experiences are on screen. Intuitive controls and labeling are critical to the operation of devices.




Contextual Research


How we understand users needs and the environments the experiences.

Rapid Prototyping and Simulation


Before any programming starts, UI can be simulated for review and testing.



User Testing and Validation


Simulators shared with participants in person or virtual to gain additional insight or acceptance to a design direction.
