Aside from standard UX/UI design work, the agency specializes in iconography design, desktop customization, and widget/gadget design. After the discovery phase is complete, customers can expect to receive a prototype for their application within five to ten business days.

Customers receive all of their deliverables as a core set of Adobe Photoshop CC.PSD files, which means there’s no coding or export of images required. The agency services come at a standard rate of $100 to $149 per hour, and customers are expected to pay 50% of the price up-front before the project launches. The remaining 50% is due at different time intervals depending on whether the business is based in the U.S. or not.

How We Chose the Best User Experience Designer Agencies

The last two decades have seen rapid growth in the number of user experience designer agencies, as more and more services move online and companies look to improve their products, increase conversion rates, and deliver an overall great customer experience. A simple Google search would reveal hundreds of user experience designer agencies, but that doesn’t mean all of them would be a good fit for your business. When choosing a designer agency, it’s important to look for a company that understands your business, the needs of your customers, and the industry you operate in. When evaluating user experience designer agencies to choose the top 15, we considered agencies that offer a wide range of services, employ enough staff to deliver both small and larger projects, and have a wide range of industry experience to meet the needs of a variety of businesses.

Multiple Service Lines

Building quality products and standout brands requires a diverse skill set, so we looked for agencies that offer a broad scope of services, from building mobile applications and product design to brand and UX strategy.

Size of Firm

The size of the firm can directly affect cost, timelines, and your overall satisfaction with the service. Smaller firms can offer a more personalized and flexible approach to project delivery, so they can be great for businesses that want to really get to know the people they’re working with. On the other hand, larger companies are great if you want to work with tried-and-tested processes where you can see quick turnaround on prototypes and project deliverables.

Industry Focus

Prior industry experience means agencies already have a good grasp of the needs of your end customer, understand the competitive landscape you operate in, and can get up to speed with your project goals relatively quickly. To make sure they can deliver for you, we looked at agencies that have worked with recognized brands from various industries.

What Is User Experience (UX)?

The term “user experience” was coined by Don Norman, a cognitive scientist and professor, when he joined Apple in 1993 as a user experience architect. The term was used to refer to the overall experience end users have when they interact with a company and its products and services.

The world has changed dramatically since then as new technologies and services emerge on the market, and UX is at the core of making sure these services deliver what they promise. However, UX refers to more than just digital products and can be applied to physical products too, such as coffee machines, printers, and cars.

The aim of a good UX design is to make sure users get the most value from a product, with the least friction or inconvenience. For instance, a UX designer of coffee mugs would look at making the cup easy to hold, stable, suitably sized, and perhaps made of a material that can keep your coffee hot longer. On the other hand, a web UX designer will focus on how easy a website is to browse and how quickly visitors can find what they’re looking for.

User interface (UI) is closely linked to user experience and focuses on the look and feel of the final product. Unlike UX, though, UI often refers to digital products and services and aims to make the users feel a certain way. A good UI should be invisible and let users do what they want without being distracted by the interface itself.

Benefits of User Experience Designer Agencies

UX and UI are crucial when you’re conceptualizing and designing your products because they can make or break your business. Having a great idea for a product is almost futile if your customers don’t have an easy way to interact with it or use it. However, not every business can hire in-house UX/UI designers. So using an agency can be beneficial by offering:

  • Value: Small businesses have tight budgets that are allocated in advance to mission-critical spending, and they might not be able to afford hiring internal talent. Likewise, some businesses may need temporary help on one-time projects and might not need to have a full-time staff member. Hiring an external user experience designer agency can help in both of those scenarios. Though an agency’s hourly rate might be higher than what you’d pay a staff member, it can be cheaper overall because you would use the agency only for a limited time and avoid the overhead of payroll contributions and taxes.
  • Experience: Another benefit is the economy of scale you gain by using the agency’s existing experience. New hires take time to be onboarded and might require additional training before they can begin contributing to your projects. In contrast, a user experience designer agency that has dozens of similar projects under its belt can get up and running quickly and offer ideas on how to improve and streamline your services.
  • Flexibility: Finally, the biggest benefit of all is perhaps the flexibility you get in deciding how you’d like to work with an agency. An outside agency can supplement your in-house talent and take the spillover workload, or it can replace an entire UX/UI department and become an extension of your business.

What to Look for in a User Experience Designer Agency

User experience became popularized with the dot-com boom, as almost every business on the planet wanted an online presence. The increased demand for UX/UI services meant new agencies were born almost daily, although not all of them can achieve the desired results for every business. When assessing user experience designer agencies, you should look for the following:

  • Design of the agency’s website: One of the great things about UX/UI services is that you can immediately see the quality of a designer’s work simply looking at that person’s online presence. If an agency needs to deliver a standout website for your business, what’s better than looking at its website? Is the homepage clear and appealing? Are you drawn in to browse more? Can you easily find what you’re looking for?
  • Proven track record: When it comes to creative services, “good” is sometimes subjective, so be sure to check an agency’s past customers and case studies. Has it delivered similar projects in your industry? Does it have data about how its designs have helped customers succeed? Being able to see these things can instill trust that the agency can deliver for your business too.
  • Range of services: User experience encompasses more than the look of your products. Hiring an agency that offers a range of services, including product design, usability research, brand strategy, and search engine optimization means you can rely on it to not only design your products but also put them in front of the eyes of your target audience. That way, you can avoid working with multiple agencies for different services and can save time by having one trusted partner that understands your business and can deliver accordingly.

The Cost of User Experience Designer Agencies

The cost of hiring a user experience designer agency varies greatly based on factors such as the agency’s location, size, and range of services. For instance, an agency that’s headquartered in India or Eastern Europe will have lower overhead and can offer a more affordable rate of $24 to $50 per hour. On the other hand, agencies located in North America or the United Kingdom and those that can deliver both UX design and brand strategy might charge up to $199 per hour. For some businesses, the latter option might be preferred, because even though they might need to pay a higher rate, they can rely on a single agency for all of their design and marketing needs. This means they can save on the research and coordination costs of working with multiple agencies at once.

Most agencies work on retainers and have various payment structures, although most ask that at least a percentage of the total project cost be paid up-front. Some agencies charge a per-project rate, while others charge a combination of a fixed amount and per-hour rate.
