Who we are

Filament Group is small by design, and focused on working closely with client strategy, design and development teams to deliver exceptional user experience and usability.

We adapt engagements to the client need — whether it be a UI concept prototype to establish the strategic vision for a new product; UI audit and usability review of existing platforms; or full-scale detailed UI system design and documentation. We're knowledgeable about front-end coding, accessibility and responsive principles, as well as branding standards and business goals, and strive to represent all these interests in the design.
