What we value

Owning the challenge

Engaging in a project means going all in to understand the goals, the constraints, and what we can do to make the project successful. We’re always noodling design problems and research insights to push projects toward their potential.

Testing constraints
We hate waste–and we suspect you do, too–so we will poke and prod on requirements and constraints to make sure we’re exploring the right creative space. Making sure we get things right ensures we don’t need to do them twice.

Meeting requirements with creativity

Successful user experiences don’t just check boxes; they add color and utility, filling the space with emotional and logical connections. We meet every ask with a creative response so the designs are always tailored, not templated.

Sparking creativity with research

In our dictionary, “research” is anything but a four-letter word. We thrive on doing the research to uncover opportunities others may miss and amplifying our design ideas so they make the biggest impact.

Real talk
We strive to remove friction from not only our designs, but the teamwork as well. We’re respectfully courageous when it comes to difficult decisions and team alignment.
Moving forward, sensibly
We like to move quickly, and teams that learn along the way move fastest. So we balance being thorough with being practical to move the team forward efficiently and confidently.

Moving forward together

“Designing for others requires empathy, and great design demands aligning your success with theirs.”

Agency UX was founded in 2014 by Kevin Jeong, a career-long innovator experienced in helping Fortune 500 companies, agencies, and startups tackle business challenges of the day with design. With a history of creating design practices and serving on multiple in-house innovation teams, Kevin saw the need to bridge the gap between design ideas and execution—which can be where teams either make the magic happen or get stuck in the status quo.
