Like the oven, we cooked fast.

Adjust joined the Tovala team after a successful Kickstarter campaign that more than doubled the initial pledge to design the UX & UI of their oven control app.

We quickly outlined our approach and established a product roadmap to drive iterative white-boarding & feedback sessions.

To understand the capabilities of the “smart oven” and the business model, we dove into the technical capacity of the hardware and how its magic can be translated to a smartphone.

A smart product.

Using our experience of user patterns for iOS and Android, we designed a streamlined UI that consistently integrates the brand and focuses on modern user patterns in mobile e-commerce service design, hardware-to-smartphone interaction and community-based platforms.

The Entertainment Institute


If we build it, they will inspire.

Together with The Entertainment Institute, we created a valuable and sustainable education & communication platform that helps artists be closer to their fans while keeping up with their demanding lifestyles with a year-round destination for the communities to thrive and interact in real-time with video chat & modern social features.

The assumption was that bringing together like-minded individuals from around the globe would enable those individuals to unite around a much greater cause and inspire personal growth through education.

That assumption was correct.

Validate, prototype and execute.

Our user experience & design team worked closely and iteratively with the TEI stakeholders.

We began Agile design & development sprint cycles, assessing direction and development throughout 10 iterations to build what was needed to facilitate meaningful conversations while helping artists monetize content for their communities.

TEI launched a limited public beta in September 2016 and is growing to a full public launch for Vans Warped Tour for summer 2017 and beyond.

The complexity of Health IT

HIMSS enlisted Adjust Creative to architect a new platform for 4 different content databases that host consolidated information about Meaningful Use & Patient Engagement alongside proprietary HIMSS value based content. The content would then be presented with a hybrid of both conceptual and straightforward user experience methods.

Adjust conducted exhaustive research with potential users to determine goals for accessing these types of content.

We employed a solution architecture method to define a common taxonomy and model to use throughout the platform, and the greater HIMSS web properties.

With the HIMSS Health IT Value Suite, we got to not only flex our architectural muscles, but our design and full-stack development skills as well.

Incredible Results

The Value Suite was praised at the leadership level of the HIMSS and during a McKinsey audit was identified one of a few key pillars to build upon. Analytics provides backup in the form of data to these opinions—the Value Suite has astronomically higher statistics when compared to the rest of himss.org and industry averages.

Because of it’s unique and immersive user interface design, the stakeholders asked us to port the application for use on interactive kiosks for HIMSS 2015 Conference and on a giant touch screen at the HIMSS Innovation Center in Cleveland, Ohio.

Digital Divas

Digital Divas

STEAM Education for Young Girls

Fresh User Experience

Adjust was brought on to design a fresh user experience for the Digital Divas learning platform. The platform serves as a tool for after school STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Math) curriculum geared toward middle school girls. The Digital Divas is a division of DePaul's Digital Youth Network that focuses on exposing girls to "nontraditional" learning pathways, encouraging them to explore STEM skills, challenge stereotypes, and continue to explore these subjects in high school and beyond.

Through user interviews and observations of students and mentors, we defined a core set of features that would support a blended learning environment. We then designed a UI that supports the Diva’s lively playful aesthetic, featuring the badge system and other game-like elements. Adjust worked in tandem with the Digital Youth Network to create the component based interface through an agile development process.


Before Adjust was engaged, the user interface was overly complex and presented disjointed information architecture. During the UX design and development iterations, we focused on streamlining the workflow and cultivating a content delivery platform that was simple and fun.

Adjust jumped into a very fast-paced iterative development process and was able to get up-to-speed while still modifying the design based on prioritization in order to deliver the platform for a summer pilot of the program.

Adjust delivered well-researched, thoroughly tested designs as well as augmented the development team to help bring those designs to life.
