What we do

End-to-end digital experiences

We start by understanding your customers. We then use those insights to build a working prototype, which leads to an MVP build that is constantly evolving.

Research

Strategy and discovery

We use targeted research to understand what to build and why. The Highland team is a national leader in using Jobs to be Done research to shape digital strategy, especially in long, complex customer journeys.

Design

Product and service design

We bring digital products and experiences to life using rapid prototyping and validation techniques. We'll bring your idea all the way through to sophisticated UX/UI designs and design systems.

Build

Custom software and technology

From technical architecture to a new product launch, we form small, multi-disciplinary teams to develop web applications, mobile applications, multi-tenant platforms, and revenue-generating digital products.

“We wouldn’t be achieving our business goals without Highland. Everyone on their team was very clear on what we set out to do. We worked with an incredibly high-caliber group.”
Jill Cole
Director of Membership, Thrivent Financial
“Their work was very well-received. A number of doctors commented that the journey map helped them validate what they had thought but were never able to put down. Highland went above and beyond in terms of getting an in-depth understanding of our material in a way that other firms don’t.”
Christopher Nueharth
Executive Director of Digital Health, Children's Wisconsin
