The UX expertise you need,
when you need it

Antenna Consulting is a specialist consultancy that offers organizations experienced user experience (UX) strategists, designers, and researchers on a project basis. Based in Vancouver, BC, we provide the UX skills and people you need to successfully deliver your projects.

UX Strategy

If you need outside expertise to generate ideas, set priorities, or set direction for your project, our UX strategists can help. We work to understand your goals, and then craft a plan or roadmap that best meets those requirements.

UX Research

Our UX researchers can help you ensure that your product or project meets your users’ needs. From usability testing to ethnographic fieldwork, we provide a full range of qualitative research services so you can better understand your users and their needs.

UX Design

If you already have a strategy or plan for what you need to create, but lack the internal resources required, our UX designers can realize your vision. We synthesize business and user requirements to design highly usable and useful products and experiences.
