Long story short

ECHOES are experts in geolocative storytelling and audio augmented reality. Their platform offers powerful creative tools for anybody interested in GPS-triggered sound experiences: a mobile app for creating, organizing and publishing content and an online app for discovering existing pieces. As products of a values-driven business passionate about promoting creativity their apps are free to use, free of advertising and there are no sneaky data sales either.

Initially hired for a website redesign, our work together became a long-term partnership: over time, we have been working with the ECHOES team on strategic planning and vision, incrementally refining the brand and products, systematically advocating for and nurturing a user-centric culture & healthy internal UX and design practices.

We were responsible for the core mobile app ECHOES Explorer redesign (in progress – iterative updates based on user insights), initiating and executing key improvements in UX and UI across the web and mobile platform as well as taking the design lead on a variety of custom-built geolocative apps for a range of clients worldwide.

We have done discovery variety of customer workshops, UX audits and white-label and bespoke app designs for projects working with interactive geolocated sound experiences. Including pieces like:
• ‘The Royal Parks: Music for trees’ mobile app (WIP) — London, UK
• ‘Sansâga’ mobile app (WIP) — Bornholm, Denmark
• ‘Wade in the water’ mobile app — Charleston, USA

At the moment ECHOES are testing binaural sound and 3D audio so there is a lot more to be explored in the AR interface playground in the immediate future!

Highlights

In the first 18 months we achieved:
◦  50% increase in revenue
◦  140% increase in sign-ups
