Pick your favourite term: We're alternately called a web agency, a software company, a user-experience design firm, a digital transformation agency, a digital consultancy, or simply (and hopefully), your partner.
“Domain7 means 'perfect place.' It's the word that describes our vision of a nearly impossible goal: of an entire world made better. It stands alongside terms like utopia, shalom, world peace. But it's the journey we're all on, the one we may never get to—that never-ending quest to find greatness—and it's what keeps us constantly moving forward.”
Empathy, depth and purpose: why we're different
With the variety of digital agencies, innovation consultancies and web talent available to choose from, why would Domain7 make your shortlist?
1. Our digital depth: Some agencies are new to the web game; they've bolted on "digital services" as an afterthought. Our roots are in the web: full-stack development for the browser was our first focus, we were first-movers in the responsive design trend, and we've built a trusted, competent, technical team that delivers.
2. Our disciplined project management: A 2011 Harvard Business Review article pointed out that "IT projects are now so big, and they touch so many aspects of an organization, that they pose a singular new risk...they have sunk whole corporations." We recognize the value and worth of your projects, and match that with rigorous, transparent project management.
3. Our empathy creates results: We create emotionally-resonant work that makes an impact. It comes from thoughtful research and active listening to help us understand our clients' real needs, their customers, their cultures, their pain points. It translates to sensitive and sound business strategies, powerfully emotive design, and human-centered user experiences.
4. Connect with something bigger: We're an organization that seeks the bigger picture. We want the web and the world to be a better place, and our whole culture exists in pursuit of human betterment. When you work with us, you become part of that tribe and movement, too.
5. You'll really like being part of our team: You can meet them here. We're a friendly, fun, fascinating team, and we don't hide our people behind executives. You'll become part of our team when you work with us: we believe real, attainable transformation happens when we collaborate closely together.
6. We help build your capacity to do more. We believe the best digital strategies don't involve blowing up your website every 2-3 years. Instead, you should be iterating based on user feedback and continuous testing. This can happen with a healthy digital culture paired with smart systems. Our process of close collaboration helps you build both. It's what we mean when we say, "change is in the making."
“I loved working with your project managers. The project was a lot more technical than we had anticipated but they explained complexities in easy to understand ways. It meant they quickly gained my trust. Honestly they exceeded my expectations at nearly every turn.”
If you want transformation, it doesn't come from simply strategizing, it comes from making. Doing. Building. Executing. Launching. Shipping. It doesn't come from buying a product or service—it comes from creating. Our approach invites you to be part of the creation process. Change is in the making.
We do our best work (and you do your most significant changing) when you are deeply involved with entire process, in a real partnership. It's our goal for each collaboration: that our clients leave with healthier cultures and greater capacity.
