About Us

In a galaxy of full service agencies, Thin Martian boldly goes to the heart of interface design.

We don't think any digital agency can do everything, so we specialise in doing what we do really well.

We create out of this world digital interfaces.

Combining the drive of a young team with the experience of an established one.

Designing with one thing in mind: to make life easier for your customers.

Core services

IA and UX
UX

Or, in plain English, Information Architecture and User Experience.

Or in plainer English, this is the bit that makes sure users have a great experience on your website, mobile app, or whatever it might be.

We work really closely with you on this, mapping out a user's journey through your content. Then we make wireframes and basic page layouts, checking how smoothly they work with real customers. When everyone's happy, we move on to design.

UI
UI

Or, in plain English, User Interface Design.

Or in plainer English, the pretty bit.

We're good at this. Really. Our creative and technical teams work together to make interfaces which don't just look stunning, they work like a dream.

By focusing all our attention on the front end we can double down on the kind of details a full service agency might miss. The result? A truly immersive experience for your users.

Frontend build
Frontend

Or, in plain English, um, Frontend build.

Whether you're building a product, a marketing site or a mobile app you know that your customers love simple, intuitive interactions. We know how to make them.

We keep on top of the very latest tech, but only so we can apply the best tech for your business. Whether it's CSS, HTML5, React, Flux (or in plain English, geek stuff!) we'll identify the products and platforms that meet your specifications perfectly while offering users rich, rewarding interactive experiences, on any device.

Oh, and we're team players. Collaborating with trusted backend builders, such as your in-house team, leaves us free to make world beating digital user interfaces.

Let's put it this way...

If you want to look nice, go to a department store. If you want to look FABULOUS, go to a dressmaker.
