UX Analysis & Crowd Design

Tallan’s UX Envisioning with the Crowd is a hybrid design management methodology. Tallan’s veteran UX technologists leverage the creativity and variety made possible by crowdsourced design competition to power the design phase. Then, through research and analysis, creative strategy and direction, we drive your UX project from an idea to development.


Designing an optimal User Experience requires a lot of time and effort. Leveraging limited in-house staff or managing freelancers can increase project management effort while limiting the breadth of design possibilities.

Limited Design Variety

In-house creative staff or individual freelancers can only contribute so much.

Elongated Timelines

With limited creative staff, project timelines are much longer, inhibiting your speed to market.

Overleveraged Resources

Design projects require collaboration on various levels, adding to the workload of designers, managers, and executives in achieving project goals.

achieve more with the crowd

Let our veteran technologists plan and manage your UX project, leveraging crowdsourced creativity.

Expanded Variety & Creativity

Competition-driven design casts a much wider net and with it gathers a wider variety of creativity, from talented designers all over the world!

Speed to Market

With that wider net cast, we can gather many more design pitches in a much shorter period of time, eliminating back and forth between a few designers, and collapsing your project timeline by days or even weeks.

Free Up Internal Resources

Crowd-based envisioning managed by Tallan UX experts allows your staff designers, marketers, and even executives, to spend less time worrying about your project, and more time to getting strategic.

Understanding Your Needs and Identifying Design Opportunities

UX Assessment

After completing our UX questionnaire, we’ll set up a digital meeting with your key team members and our UX strategists to understand your UX needs, develop recommendations and an initial project outline.

Project Strategy Session

With a project or two in mind, we meet with your key team members and executives to educate and brainstorm on what’s possible, and create an initial statement of work.

Tallan UX Rally

We bring the creativity and excitement of a UX design competition to you! Think of our UX Rallies as the NFL Draft of design talent. As your project competition runs, we eat, drink and collaborate to award your winning designs and get your project moving!
