Adam Fard Studio

Our product design agency's focus revolves around FinTech and SaaS. Over the years, we’ve developed a strong professional interest in working with complex B2B products—this is where we thrive. 

Counter to what most modern studios offer, like flashy, marketing-oriented B2C websites, we aim to help intricate and multifaceted products become intuitive and accessible. To do this, we leverage our extensive experience in merging multiple systems, crafting coherent and cohesive experiences, and boosting business metrics like Activation, Conversion, and Retention.

Another reason why we choose to focus on complex projects is our team—it consists of Senior Researchers and Designers with 8+ years of experience. We integrate UX into the very DNA of our client's projects through education and design best practices. 

Our UX work boils down to eliminating uncertainty and minimizing product risks. Design is not just about dragging pixels from one place to another—we dig deep into our clients’ business and help them achieve product-market-fitness with extensive research and a solid design process.

More importantly, we dive deep into your users’ needs by working with a team of experienced researchers that will uncover more actionable insight compared to the industry-standard one-man-designer-army.

We’re a relatively small team which helps us stay nimble and flexible. We’ve been remote long before the pandemic hit, which is why we’re pretty good at keeping our distributed team efficient.
