With business objectives and your users in mind we work with you to create seamless, useful and enjoyable experiences that are there to meet a specific goal, whether internal or external to your business. This may come in the form of user or team onboarding, website experiences, front-end ecommerce onto marketing campaigns, smooth back-end management, workflows and more. We start from a ten-thousand foot view before mapping out the journey from start to end and then working on the details improving every touchpoint.

This is ideal for growing businesses and/or businesses that know they are frustrated with their systems and workflows and still doing a lot of manual work, want to spend more time in more important areas but are bogged down but running daily business, experiencing bottlenecks, need to leverage from their years of work, have focussed on key business issues and now need to really improve a process or are feeling a decrease in customer engagement, loyalty & competitive edge. Our clients for this service vary greatly in size but we find this service works best with companies that have 10 - 5,000 employees.

  • User experience design
  • Customer journey mapping
  • Prototyping & testing
  • Workflows & lifecycles
  • Customer journey mapping
  • Customer touchpoint audit
  • Current state analysis
  • Process improvement
  • Launch ready
Business processes & workflow design start at $5k. Experience mapping & customer development starts at $7k. As these services are quite variable, please reach out to chat. We'll get to know your position & business better and provide you with more information.

Whether it's a new custom website design or an extensive program with a comprehensive back-end, we focus on the processes and design elements of each state within the system. With the objectives in mind, we strategize & research, visually layout the structure & architecture, undertake customer development and overlay the systems and integrations where appropriate. We then build on this by creating the customer journey flows and sketching interfaces, designing out the varying pages, scenarios and user actions, workflow architecture and user testing.

This is ideal for growing startups, small or medium sized businesses that have been in existence for at least a year (or have extensive business experience and are launching a new service or product). If you have big goals and know you need a comprehensive analysis of your current state, want to create more engagement & loyalty with customers, increase profitability and potentially scale up for new services, products or growth, this is for you.

  • Planning and analysis
  • Customer development
  • Journey mapping
  • User workflows
  • Prototyping & testing
  • UX & UI design
  • Development (if required) & QA
Work starts at $10k and varies greatly depending on your website, product or system. Extensive website design packages generally fall into the $15k – $30k bracket. We charge a flat fee depending on your project requirements so there are no surprises.
We'd love to hear from you. Email hello @ identitydivision.co or use the contact form.

One of the projects we find ourselves often working on with clients is in the creation of online courses, training programs or learning management systems. Some of these are rolled out to the public, others are used as a scaling measure across professional service firms and others are new programs for launching new internal staff training. We've been behind the scenes of multi-million dollar launches and know what it takes to design & sell the content you’ve developed.

  • Structure & training architecture
  • Content management & structure
  • Website or application design
  • Course/training materials design
  • Extensive marketing collateral
  • Go-live ready
Launch ready course and training design & development ranges $20k – $40k. We charge a flat fee (or the option for lower project cost + profit share) and will quote this up accurately for you if you'd like to potentically proceed. We'd love to hear about your program. Please email hello @ identitydivision.co or use the form.

A digital audit will deliver you an easy to digest, detailed PDF report on your website or mobile application, software or eCommerce website. We'll talk with you about your current state & goals, discuss the key pages/areas and processes that need examining (about 5 - 7 major components are included) and conduct our comprehensive audit within 2 weeks. At completion you'll be able to ask any questions or clarifications and we'll check back in with you too. You can use the report to present to any managers or stakeholders as required or simply use it as the guide to work on yourself or with your team for making the improvements (it includes a checklist).

This is for you if you're experiencing one or a combination of these issues: still doing a lot of manual work with users & clients, a high level of abandoned carts, consistently receiving similar support requests, user engagement drop off after signup, customer complaints about a set of issues, high exit rate on key areas, your team feels confused, unmotivated or fatigued with the product, low conversion numbers (account upgrades for example), a cluttered design or lack of consistency that's come from growing over time - it just doesn't feel how it should or a high churn rate. There is something going on and you need it clearly pointed out and feasible solutions provided. This is also for people who have a consistent revenue stream - your application or service is doing well - but you absolutely know you should be able to do better.

  • Value proposition, market fit & stategy
  • Detailed tear-down of your website, application or software
  • What's great, what's nearly there & easy fixes
  • Critical issues & solutions
  • Optimization ideas & opportunities
  • Potential new revenue streams & leveraging
  • Marketing improvements & strategies
  • Customer journey & process suggestions
  • Design recommendations & examples
  • All other notes that we pick up during the process
Digital audits are $1,750 and will save & make you a whole lot of money in way of missed revenue & opportunities and costly expenses or mistakes that could have been avoided.
Ready to book? Email through your website or application and your key issues to hello @ identitydivision.co so we can get chatting.

Do you need help in your growing business? Have a team with some inexperienced members or great staff you are looking to train up to the next level to suit the way your business is headed? Rather than adding yet another role, you need an advisor, strategist or creative director to help guide you in meetings and decision making? We can help in training up members of your team on UX/UI design, shifting them from graphical to web & application work, helping out in creating processes & implementing systems for more effective management, educating on customer journeys and lifecycles, resolving bottle-necks with you, working with you to test, prototype & iterate qualified ideas, assisting you in designing touchpoints of in-bound customer marketing, identifying lost revenue and new value add opportunities to delight clients, work prioritization or organizational change & staff engagement.

We will be your ongoing advisor each month and are able to cover a number of key areas as needed within your business. Our aim is to slide into your business, be there for critical decisions, be the outside strategy that gives you solid guidance, provide a compelling case for stakeholders if needed and suggest & assist in implementing solutions. We find this works particularly well in businesses that have suddenly surged in growth (i.e. over the last six months your team has gone from 3 employees to 25, or your revenue has quickly tripled) and you really need someone right now.

  • Team & company training
  • Design thinking & education
  • Experience mapping & customer journeys
  • User centric, human design
  • Team workflows & culture
  • Nurturing & delighting customers
  • Increasing value & profitibality
  • Digital strategy support
  • Design, systems & department audits
This package is offered on a monthly basis and can be cancelled whenever it's no longer required. $6,500 per month. Please email us or use the contact page to send through some information on your business and for more details on this service.

Sometimes you just need to jump on a chat or call with someone who has been there and done-it to help you make an important decision, review your pitch deck or service documents and provide an honest review, check your product-market fit, look at things from a different angle with a fresh eye & recommendations, make sure you're moving in the right direction, help you increase your value and profit, or advise you on the best next steps to take. If this is you...hi & we can't wait to meet you! You can book an hour call directly with Lis or an hour call + a month of Slack chat support to keep you going, be around for all the questions, review changes & implementation and keep you accountable.

  • 1 hour video call through Zoom
  • Optional month of Slack chat support
1 hour support call is $350 and the call + month of support is $750. As these calls are always with Lis there are only 4 slots open each month. We will cater to your timezone as much as possible. To book, email us and we'll send you a link to the calendar to get started along with answering any questions you might have.

Speaking and Workshops

We love meeting people face-to-face in workshops (with plenty of tea!). Workshops are either held by Lis and one of the design or projects team or alongside a number of the team for specific expertise.

We primarily focus on four workshops – experience design (internal or external), systems & processes, product design & development and branding. All workshops are tailored to your business, audience, members or city. If you’d like to arrange a workshop at your company, please contact us and we’ll organize an interactive event with practical application.

All workshops can be organized by us (including venue, refreshments etc), held at your place of business or venue, or arranged in collaboration with you.

Looking for a speaker at your event? Lis does a select number of these per year and would love to hear about what you’re running and what we could potentially do for your audience. We love creating actionable takeaways and ensuring everybody feels not just inspired but smarter and clear on what to move forward with next.

Lis also loves a Q&A and finds the questions posed to be insightful and interesting across the board. Inevitably she tends to be asked about her lifestyle having travelled extensively throughout the world, setting up a few projects and running this shindig. Like most things in life she’s quite relaxed on this but tries to live more simply, consume consciously (reduce waste, buy quality, eliminate plastics) and believes in fueling your body with the good stuff (so mostly sugar free, vegetarian and dairy free – but she’s Dutch so cheese will always be involved).

She runs this business the Identity Division, Nowhere & Everywhere, Skwoodle and Sploot along with heavy involvement in a number of other key projects.

To book a workshop or speaking event in your city, or within your company, please email us at hello (at) identitydivision.co and Emily or Lis will be in touch soon.

Our team

We're a tight knit studio that houses itself in a creative space and across the world. We believe in these things and would love to hear about your work.

It takes a village

This work always take a team. We call in our beloved copywriters, photographers, videographers, consultants & specialists for projects wherever required. We love working with them on every project we do and their skills are broad and detailed. Also they're really clever and funny. Double also, they're not the flashing people above - we couldn't manage to round up everyone across the world to take the same style of photo on something more than a smart phone with a smudgy lens. We're working on it (they tell us they're busy working on the projects)!

If your project needs any of these or more (we have a lot of people on tap from illustrators to bias advisors, environmentalists, server techs and crypto experts) we would love to work with you to craft the best team for you. During our project we'll also alert you if we feel you would really benefit from one of our extended team members so the options is always there. Whether it's conversion copywriting with a side of A/B split testing, or brand tone and humor infused copy, we know the difference and they're part of our fold. We can't wait for you to meet them.
