Plan

We work closely with partners during the early conceptual stages of projects in order to maximize innovative and appropriate use of interactivity design. We focus on determining an audience, exploring DPS capabilities and setting realistic deadlines.

Design

Through creating prototypes and design options early in the creation process, we give our partners flexibility and hands-on decisions that cater their publications to specific audiences. We work as a team with project leaders to create partners' visions with interactive elements such as video, audio, slideshows, 360 degree panoramas and more.

Maintain

After an app is published, we check the analytics to see how we can help a partner's audience grow in the future. Apps can be updated if necessary, and we can begin work on another issue or publication.
