Where Technology meets Design

Time after time, software teams struggle with one major problem - filling the gap between design and development. While designers have limited understanding of technical feasibility, developers lack knowledge on how to make engaging and easy-to-use user interfaces.

Creating a successful digital product today requires more than just choosing button colors or writing clean code - it's about creating an experience. But finding a builder who is able to combine design and development into innovative experiences is like looking for a unicorn - until now.

Zuzze is a user-centered design and development studio created by Susanna Nevalainen, a Frontend Engineer and Human-Computer Interaction (HCI) Designer. Over the past decade, Susanna has built engaging experiences from 0-1 in the Silicon Valley and Europe. With the help of a holistic product development approach, she empathizes with the needs of the business, users, designers, and developers. This allows her to build user experiences that empower users as well as the team along the way. See full story

Building intuitive UX

Bad user experience is the most common reason for customer drop-offs. By tailoring UIs to user's mental models and usability guidelines, Zuzze minimizes users’ cognitive overload, creating logical and user-friendly solutions that convert.
