There’s a time when this 100% makes sense, heck we’ll even tell you if we think that’s the case. But, there are also times when hiring a studio like L+R makes sense. Typically we’re helping early companies get their ideas off the ground and ship a V1 together. Time is of the essence, and you can’t risk making a bad hire that doesn’t work out. That’s where we come in.
Internally, we’re made up of people who’ve done this for the last 10 years at places like Facebook, Coinbase, Shopify, InVision, and then some. We’ve learned what works best and how to deliver value in a variety of different team sizes and org structures.
Additionally, within the studio we operate as a design team. We have our own internal design critiques and team rituals, which means you get the collective brainpower of our entire design team making sure the best solutions are being explored.
Moreover, our team is made up of experts with complementary skills, far broader than any single individual could excel at. This means, when in-product illustrations are required we can help, when high fidelity prototyping is required, we can help, when there’s a gnarly UX flow that needs untangling, we can help.
Lastly, there will be a time when working with doesn't make sense anymore. We know this because we’ve been on the inside. As our final act, we can help you hire your own design team to make sure you’re in great hands.
