Our passion is helping customers create exceptional user experiences.

 

Founded in 1997, Busse Design USA is a Bay Area, full-service user experience design firm, specializing in both device applications and responsive websites. Our portfolio includes client projects from a wide array of markets. What ties each of these diverse projects together is our passion for creating highly usable and intuitive interfaces that users feel naturally comfortable engaging with.

 

No two clients are alike, so we embrace the process of learning about new markets and technologies, gaining the insights that help our clients create the best possible user experiences for their customers. By immersing ourselves in our client’s world and their user’s needs, we’re able to understand the goals of both the business and the target audience, creating elegant solutions to complex design challenges.

 

We work in collaboration with our clients to understand the goals and needs of any given product, so we can intuitively map out that product’s structure, functions and flow. Next, we add the dynamic and visually compelling design that will make that product exceptional. We are equally comfortable working within existing brand guidelines or developing new ones. Our goal is to deliver work that wows.

 

We understand the importance of supporting our clients' processes and ensuring that our designs work with their technologies. Our work supports the methodologies required for quality system development and integration. Whether we collaborate with a development partner or a client's in-house engineering team, we make sure the Busse Design process integrates seamlessly into the overall product development process.

 

Busse Design is a boutique sized firm. We have made a conscious decision to remain small in size, taking on a limited number of projects at any one time. This strategy results in superior work by enabling our clients to get the full attention of senior information architects and designers. Our sister company Busse Design + Engineering GmbH was founded in 1959, and offers a full range of industrial design services. To learn more about their offerings, please visit the Busse Design + Engineering web site.
