How to win friends and influence people
We are the nicest zealots you’ll probably ever meet: friendly, big-hearted people but with a steely-eyed commitment to doing great work in the right way.
We want to change the world
We want our business to positively impact the lives of hundreds of millions of people in every part of the world. Good design has the power to do this.
Foolproof works with the world’s biggest and most influential brands. These companies have the reach to make a difference. If we can help them to make better digital products and services then everyone benefits.
It’s taken us eleven years to become an overnight sensation
We started Foolproof in 2002 when frankly most websites were terrible. At this time only a handful of people in the world believed, like we did, that there was a better way to design digital products and services.
Slowly, very slowly, our point of view has prevailed. Clients and their customers are now generally better represented in design; most big projects move in iterative steps, rather than risky leaps-of-faith; and the measurement of design outcomes is treated more seriously.
Now experience design thinking is mainstream, not idealistic. That’s because it works. We’re very proud of the part we’ve played in helping to prove this. And we’re not done yet.
Doing things right is about doing the right things
We are a mission-based company. If you aren’t committed to finding the win/win you’ll find it hard to be an employee or a client.
But really it all boils down to people. Do you find what other people do and think interesting? Do you like to use what you’ve learned to make better tools and services for them? Can you put what other people need ahead of what’s easy for you? Are you always ready to learn something new?
If so, maybe we could do some great work together.
