It all began in 2012 when three UX experts met up and began to put the world to rights. We had built successful careers in big agencies, large consulting firms and client side. We all loved what we did. But didn’t understand why the agency and consulting worlds were so disparate.
Wouldn’t it be better if clients could get the creativity of an agency and the business focus of a consultancy under one roof?
So after lots of late night discussions, fuelled by copious amounts of coffee and invaluable nuggets of advice from potential clients, Newt was formed.
We hit the ground running, with supermarket giant Tesco as our first client. It was hard work but phenomenally rewarding.
We live and breathe Service Design – which probably annoys our other halves at the dinner table. But it’s great for our clients as we’re dedicated to finding the right solutions for every unique need.
Over the years, we’ve built a loyal client base, and a network of valued partners and associates who share our way of thinking.
We have big plans for the future and are always ready to harness the power of good design to make a positive difference to people’s lives.
Alex, Phil and Amanda
Innovation works best when there are some guardrails. There’s no point creating solutions that break budgets or don’t meet needs. True creativity is coming up with workable ideas within certain frameworks.
The best solutions ooze elegant simplicity. We apply grounded yet innovative design thinking to tame complexity and create brilliant, wonderfully articulated experiences.
GOOD DESIGN IMPROVES LIVES
We believe in style and substance. Good design should enhance people’s lives by simplifying the complex, decluttering the messy and bringing beauty and focus to what’s important.
TRANSPARENCY & INTEGRITY
We don’t believe in skimping over the bad bits or dressing things up with jargon. We offer clear, critical advice. Because that will give you the best results.
