Decades of Experience

The Stage One team have designed products for every major platform, across a host of sectors, markets and specialisms. Our experience is extensive, and it shows in our work.

Innovative thinking

Our background is pioneering research, emerging tech and cutting edge product design. Combined with our experience of shipping real products, why would you pick anyone else?

Great value

Our business model isn't based on exorbitant unjustified commissions. That means better quality, more highly skilled people for much less than you'd get elsewhere.

Studio Projects

We work with exceptional clients who understand the value of lean iterative user-centred thinking. Together we set objectives, agree outcomes, plan timelines and assess budgets to set terms we can work to, while maintaining the ability to adapt delivery as the project matures.

On-Site Deployments

If you're resourcing for an existing on-site project, we can deploy people from our studio directly into your teams.

As design practitioners, we understand at a practical level what it takes to build exceptional products, and sometimes that means being co-located to tackle the finer details of quality design delivery.

Your Project's Roadmap

Every project is different, and we always look for ways to innovate.
