The Schema team in our offices in Capitol Hill, Seattle
Schema is a design firm for the information age. We design for impact, focusing on information platforms that scale and evolve with organizations.
We are experts in the areas of interaction design, visual design, and data visualization, and approach every project from a human-centered perspective. We work across a broad spectrum of media, from web and mobile applications to publications and media installations. Our tools are data and information. Our mission is the creation of knowledge.
Our process is collaborative and hands-on. We engage deeply with our clients — innovative startups, progressive cultural and government organizations, as well as corporations who value design. We emphasize dialogue and prototyping as methods for inquiry, discovery and validation.
Our projects begin by exploring the space and defining the problem (Discovery). The next step is making solutions tangible so they can be evaluated (Prototype/Evaluate), before implementing and testing them (Build).
We believe that design is iterative — an ongoing process of creating and learning. We value ongoing relationships with our clients, where we combine our expertise in the pursuit of knowledge and the best possible outcomes.
