Working with milo

We are passionate about good software, aimed at humans. We are consultants, designers and developers that will help you steer your product in the right direction.

We use a design thinking approach to understand people, to generate and validate ideas, and to release products iteratively.

An illustration of an origami heart highlights the importance to understand and empathise as the first step in design thinking process.

Understand and empathise

What do people want, and why do they want it? We use tools to empathise with the user, from simple observation to co-design workshops or card sorting exercises.

An illustration of an origami lightbulb highlights the importance of exploring ideas, prototyping and testing iteratively.

Explore and prototype

Investigate ideas creating rapid prototypes, then testing them. These may be pen and paper, or a simple piece of code. The aim is to validate ideas and answer questions all along the way.

Test and implement

Release a product on web and mobile and keep an eye on its performance. Monitor analytics and user behaviour, or run A/B tests to iterate with the features and fixes that count.

Working with us is easy

We use lean and agile methodologies to run our projects. This allows us to be transparent about what we are doing and when, and it allows our clients to prioritise the work which will bring the greatest value. And thus, we develop custom software that helps products deliver for users and for  businesses.

We are ideal partners for mobile app development, web apps and desktop applications. We are React Native specialists, which has been our platform of choice for cross-platform app development since 2015.
