Think Orange is a design studio founded by Pedro Sousa and Rui Leitão in 2008 with the goal of combining the technology they love with agile fundamentals to create amazing digital products.
We provide our clients and partners functional and intuitive material. Our process focuses on being creative and innovative, with the end goal of delivering a product that is simple to understand and use.
Between functionality and aesthetics, functionality comes first. Good design doesn’t mean it looks great — it should work, be intuitive and performant.
Less clutter means a better experience. Users should be able to clearly understand the message, quickly perform the tasks they need and get the outcome they expect.
We communicate continuosly with customers so that they are part of the development process, from early prototyping to testing and measuring results.
Startups and small businesses often work with very tight budgets. We strive to make the most of the resources available. There’s always room for improvement and efficiency.
Working together with clients gives us a better chance of succeeding. The diversity of backgrounds, ideas and viewpoints are key to achieving the final goal.
Every year we take 2 months to experiment, explore and launch side-projects. Sometimes they are a big hit, other times they fail tremendously. We learn from every experience.
Passion is the fuel that drives us. As a company and as individuals, we love what we do. We believe in, and rarely take "no" for an answer.
Our lives are constantly influenced by others. As a team, we acknowledge that. That's why we aim to foster an environment that breathes positivity and a workplace that feels like home.
Nothing in life is granted. There WILL be roadblocks. So we stay humble, carry ourselves in a quiet confidence, and go about treating other as we’d like to be treated ourselves.
We believe in continuous growth, personally and professionally. This industry is always changing so we must keep learning and strive to unlock our full potential.
“New” does not mean “better”. Being flashy doesn’t make it adequate. “Tried and tested” does. We are thoughtful about choosing the technology and technique to apply, and when to apply it. Making informed decisions is more important than being trendy.
