Creating strong, useful and beautiful experiences that are measurably effective.
At INQUE we create beautiful experiences that are measurably effective. From concepting to publishing, our Project Managers oversee the entire process and balance the technical, aesthetic and practical requirements. Our work may be complex, but working with INQUE is not; we provide a service where design is approachable, its value clear. Every single thing that we create integrates a form of tracking, allowing the customer to see the benefit of our services.
Reasoning—it's a quality far too few creatives possess. We will never ask our clients to invest in something that we can't measure the success of. We pride ourselves on our use of analytics, user testing, focus groups, surveys, paper prototyping, AB testing and other testing methods to demonstrate, empirically, the effectiveness of our design solutions.
Design makes a huge difference by enhancing desirability and identity. Competitive pricing and quality are to be expected in today's business world, but what makes someone choose you is design. Design isn't just about pretty pictures anymore—at INQUE, we design user experiences that increase engagement and ease of use. We don't stop at creating the solution, our developers build it using up-the-second tools.
Kyle assesses every project that comes through the company, ensuring that INQUE's solutions address the client's needs in a sophisticated, beautiful and valuable way. Before his university career, Kyle studied in Germany, the US, and Australia, giving him a uniquely international perspective. Kyle holds a degree in interaction design with a minor in publishing from Simon Fraser University in Canada. He recently worked as an art director with Alaska's largest advertising agency, Bradley Reid + Associates, most notably redesigning the State of Alaska's Official Vacation Planner.
Matt's mission is to design systems that are so intuitive that instructions are not required. He holds a Bachelor of Science in Interaction Design and specializes in interface architecture and implementation. Matt understands the design and development process intimately and can make extremely abstract and complicated systems become a reality. Matt's work has directly affected several Vancouver business' bottom lines; in one case our client now enjoys a six figure increase in profit.
Between wandering the Art Section in bookstores, hiking mountains and photography, Kate designs for our INQUE. Kate holds a BA in graphic design from Flagler College, Florida, and impressed us with a refined portfolio of app design and branding as well as packaging design. Kate's craft extends beyond the digital—material selection and manipulation have played major parts in her previous work where she built physical manifestations and packaging for her brand designs.
Jesse describes graphic design as her "love, her forte, her cup of tea." With a BA in Fine Arts, Jesse tackles branding, print and digital design for our clients. A roller derby aficionado, Jesse is eccentric, as you'd expect from an artist, but highly professional—her work is clean, elegant and refined.
Garret is probably the most familiar face to our clients as much of the interfacing and day-to-day operations of INQUE pass through him. Currently studying with the intention of graduating in the field of Graphic Design, Garret has a keen sense of elegance and modernity. Besides producing clean and beautiful graphic solutions, Garret is a more than capable photographer and has worked on many projects including product photography. In his spare time, he likes traveling to Portland, photographing cars and reading about the design world.
Sergei has been designing and developing websites with complex front and back ends for over 7 years. He routinely handles complete website redesigns, search engine optimizations, website mapping and interactive prototyping for medium-sized businesses, non-profits, marketing firms and individuals. He excels at figuring out the intricacies of complicated projects and prides himself on getting things done and done well.
Brendan is the most personable developer we have ever encountered. He focuses on people and usability foremost, but also is extremely knowledgable on the technical side—which is surprising as his Bachelor of Science out of University of Minnesota is in graphic design. Brendan is adventurous in every sense of the word: If he isn't reading or collaborating, he is in the mountains skiing, snowboarding hiking or climbing.
