At Sixzero, we believe a designer’s job goes beyond just creating something beautiful. Through user research and intuitive design, our team turns big ideas into amazing products that change lives (seriously, someone told us that once).
In our experience the very best ideas often come from the most unsuspecting places, not from some hotshot designer sitting alone in a room — it’s why we’re so obsessed with user testing.
