Combating Global Deforestation to Save our Planet’s Trees

In a move to combat deforestation, Global Forest Watch approached us with the idea of putting data in the hands of rangers and communities. Forest Watcher lets users monitor areas and submit evidence of deforestation in the areas they care about the most.

Visiting Blood Banks to Transform the Donation Process

When The American Red Cross reached out to help them combat diminishing blood donations across the US, we flew out to New Jersey and visited a blood bank to find out how and why people made donations. One pint of blood can save up to three lives, and with banks running at an all-time low, the project couldn't have been more timely or important. We learnt that the lack of convenient appointments, personalisation and rewards where all major barriers donors were facing.

Collaborating in Conservation to Give Nature a Home

With over 1,000 employees, 18,000 volunteers and 1,000,000 members, RSPB needed a way to strengthen their presence on digital and give their community a new way to get behind their cause. To validate a solution we worked with the RSPB team to develop a series of prototypes, bringing different ideas to life. Testing these designs with users in the real world and leveraging the feedback to inform a mobile app that helped them achieve their goals.

Innovation at the heart of every digital concept

This has helped to be named the UK’s Most Innovative Agency and helped to create digital strategies and mobile solutions that improve customer experiences, bring real business value, drive revenue and have a positive impact on the world.

Better results start with great digital strategy.

Measuring the success of an app usually comes as an afterthought, leading people to focus on the wrong metrics.

At Cube our team of mobile digital strategy consultants will help you discover your key business goals and ensure that every solution will perform and bring digital success.

Our Chief Changemaker Puff explains what you should be looking out for when measuring the success of your app and how to go about it beforehand.

Our Discover & Define Process

1. Research

Collaboration is key. We know we’re not experts in your sector or field, in the same way you aren’t experts in ours. It’s the collaboration that brings together your market, business and user know-how with our knowledge of technology, innovation and digital solutions. Making sure we get the best of both worlds and build apps that really solve the issues your users are facing.

2. Discover

We don’t just look to apps for potential ideas and solutions, but technology as a whole. This means using our knowledge on the latest trends and innovations to come up with solutions you may not know about or think were possible. We often find that the best insights come from people experiencing the problem, not people who are already talking about the solutions.

3. Sketch

We’ll test basic concepts and ideas in very low-fidelity formats such as wireframes. To get a better understanding of how different elements could be implemented and how the end user would interact with them. Sketches mean that we don’t spend valuable time and resources implementing ideas that don’t add value to your end users.

4. Validate

Once sketches have been created, we’ll sit down with users in the real world to test ideas and get feedback on the usefulness of different aspects; what your users want them to do and how they want to interact with them. Which more often than not leads to changes and iterations before we begin prototyping.

5. Prototype

After ideas have been sketched and validated with your users, we begin prototyping. These prototypes act as a more detailed design of certain elements, features or functions of your app, letting users actually navigate to different pages and use different features that could be included in your final design.

6. Define

The final stage of the process, we sit down and define a couple of things including finalised user stories, a defined MVP (Minimum Viable Product) as well as an estimate of costs, deadlines and project milestones.
