Frequently Asked Questions

Contact us

What are your areas of focus as UX agency?

User experience is more than a capability for us. It’s at the core of everything we do at Weir. We started in San Diego as a branding and web design agency focused on eCommerce websites but quickly expanded our offering to web applications, enterprise software, and systems architecture. The UX/UI and web design projects we take on range from building a new product to redesigning an existing mobile app, website, or enterprise software.  We do everything you might need to bring a successful digital product to life: user research, product strategy, user interface, and user experience design, usability testing, prototyping, web design, and development.

What makes you stand out from the rest?

We get this question a lot. There are many competent UX agencies in San Diego alone and even more globally. It’s hard to be different when the standard is so high. So how do we stand out? First and foremost, it’s the quality of our UX/UI design work and the craft it takes to make it. The digital products and user interfaces we create are easy to use, look great, and represent your brand in the best way possible. Then, it’s the people who make your project a reality.

We always assign a multidisciplinary team of UX UI designers, developers, product architects, and other specialists led by our founder. Finally, unlike most traditional digital design firms and user experience designers, we blend creativity and product design capabilities under one roof and on the same project. Imagine a design firm meets a development company — that’s us.

Are you hiring?

Yes, we are.
Weir is looking to partner with designers, developers, and strategists on new and exciting business opportunities. Reach out to inquire.

Can you help us with our Enterprise UX software

Yes, we’re up to the challenge. We’re one of the few user experience firms specializing in enterprise UX design and digital transformation of legacy business software. We’ve perfected our process over the years, modernizing digital platforms.

We start each new enterprise UX project with a deep dive discovery and research to fully immerse ourselves in the industry and project specifics. We're a full-service digital agency.  Our services span from user research and information architecture, UX UI design, prototyping, and user testing to full-stack development and design systems. Our UI UX design firm acts as an independent entity that moves fast, avoiding the bureaucracy of a large organization, often working hand in hand with innovation labs and in-house teams.

How much does it cost to work with you?

Our pricing is directly related to the project scope, timeline, deliverables, and team composition. When the scope is not set in stone, or the project is very dynamic, we prefer engaging on a time and materials basis where you pay us for the time spent. However, most of our UX UI engagements are fixed price contracts. In this case, we’ll give you a detailed proposal after learning as much as possible about your project. All estimates are calculated based on the hourly rates and the number of hours we think the job will take. 

As an illustration, a sample project with a UX design agency may take ten weeks and cost $50k-100k. For time and materials engagements, we create custom rate cards for you based on the team composition. Our rates span from $70/hour for light design to $160/hour for our system architects. We also offer special rates for qualified startups. Please email us to get a quote.

What process should I expect from your UX Agency?

Our UI/UX design process is based on the design thinking methodology, which allows us to be flexible, adapting to almost any project type and collaboration model. While each UX UI design engagement is unique, we always go through the following key phases: 

Discovery & Research
We usually start by consolidating all available project documentation and scheduling UX workshops with your team. During those sessions, we interview key stakeholders, collaborate on requirements, as well as ideate, and plan the next steps. When possible, our UX designers talk to your current or potential customers to understand their needs and pain points. In some cases, we may need to audit your existing product to identify opportunities for improvements to the user experience. We will also review competitor products, gather visual design references, and document best practices. 

Digital Strategy & Concepts
Based on the discovery & research results, we synthesize a digital strategy and define aUX approach to drive our design process. Since we're a UI/UX design agency, we will explore different concepts to establish such core elements as information architecture, key screen layouts, and UI design direction. We then validate the resulting concept with users and stakeholders. Once the feedback is in, we make necessary updates to proceed with designing the rest of the product. 

UI/UX Design 
After the UI design concept has been approved, we start designing the UI and UX, continuously conducting user tests, and iterating along the way. The UX UI design's main activities include user flow mapping, wireframing, user interface design, interaction design, and prototyping. We hand off design assets to developers using tools like Figma and Zeplin to provide a comprehensive style guide that includes a UI component library, UX guidelines, and complete user flows.
