It's our 10th birthday!
We've put together some of our proudest moments and favourite memories to share with everyone we've met along the way.
On Wednesday morning America woke up to our very own Andy Bell on Good Morning America. Well done to Andy, James and the Boomf team.
This week we launched Tube socks - socks the colour of the tube. Our socks are available in two styles, the white striped Peak sock and the full colour Off Peak. Both cost £7.99 a pair, including free delivery to anywhere in the world.
If you know someone that uses or likes the tube that might want a pair this Christmas then move fast- we have a limited stock and so far there are no reported delays in sales on this line.
Mind the gasp
You can’t create a great product or take it to market without paying close attention to your users' needs. That’s why we build user research into every project at Mint, whether we’re working for a client or creating and marketing a product of our own.
There are countless ways to learn about audiences and their behaviours and needs. We’ve conducted user research in all kinds of ways at Mint: sometimes a discovery phase lasts weeks, other times budgets and deadlines are tighter and we need to get creative to find out what we need to know quickly.
Here are some of the things we’ve learned.
When we have a designer position available at Mint, we tend to get a lot of applications; most very good, some that need improvement. It’s quite a task going through all of them to find the right candidate. It’s also hard for young designers to know how to stand out, or what studios are looking for.
