Answers to our customer’s most frequently asked questions.
Our SaaS design projects start once we’ve gathered internal insights and established a clear project scope during our live workshop sessions. Once these critical aspects are in place, our team is primed to initiate work almost immediately.
Typically, our designers are engaged and ready to start on your project within a matter of days, and in some cases, mere hours from the conclusion of our initial workshops. This rapid initiation ensures that your project gains momentum promptly, allowing us to channel our expertise and creativity into crafting tailored design solutions for your SaaS product.

Clients under a 6-12 month contract can cancel the project upon the expiration of the contract term. We’ll work with you to wrap up any remaining tasks or deliverables, ensuring a comprehensive and satisfactory conclusion to our collaboration.
