Why does
Discovery matter?

Consumers have different backgrounds, sociocultural influences, and experiences that shape their understanding. At the same time, different stakeholders have unique communication needs.


Our discovery process allows us to understand all perspectives and goals before we jump to any conclusions about a design.

Discovery Benefits

Considering every impacted person's perspective allows you to create communications that hit the mark and lead to improved experiences, business efficiencies, and customer loyalty.


What you can expect from Discovery:

  • Ethnographic and Stakeholder Interviews

  • Communication Audits

  • Assessments of Information using KKG's Information Assessment Tool©


What goes
into Design?

Design is more than just styling information to make it look pretty. Design is combination of visual aids and words that lead to true comprehension. We use our expertise in plain language, design, and cognitive psychology to create information that facilitates learning and consequently leads to action on the part of consumers.

 Design Benefits

When your customers gain clarity, they are capable of taking action. Well-designed information leads to accurate responses, which are not only protective to your business but also create efficiency and customer loyalty.

What you can expect from Design:

  •  Blanksheeting© Process

  • Design for Measurable Behavioral Outcomes 


Why Test with Real People?

Real people provide real feedback. By testing our prototypes with individuals who align to our target demographics, our testing yields actionable, thoughtful feedback. Testing removes the assumptions and cuts to the heart of whether the hypotheses we developed during discovery holds true when introduced to real people.

Test Benefits

Because we test, our research ensures that the information you produce works in the real world. Investing in a testing process saves time and money, allowing you to identify and address issues early.
