Ad Hoc’s design practice provides human-centered solutions that align stakeholder goals with user needs.

Blocky, the Ad Hoc mascot, building a wireframe.

Design bridges our research, product, and engineering practices by surfacing findings and aligning on proposed solutions. Our designers work with customers to shape and define user-facing products and the systems that support them.

Our design practice doesn't use overly-specific methodologies or approaches. Rather, we adhere to a larger set of core principles that we apply in ways that fit the needs of our customers.

We give our designers the agency to be empowered practitioners ready to jump in at any stage of a project. Every designer on our team has the appropriate skills required to contribute to products wherever they might be in their lifecycle.
