When most people think of design, they think of visuals like colors, fonts, and imagery. These elements are important, but great design is more than what meets the eye. Design should reflect a firm’s brand and create a pleasant, engaging experience. When coupled with technology, design elevates the user experience, allowing for efficient, flexible, and customizable processes.
