Hey, Startups

Ptype is your UX partner.

We are a full-service UX agency headquartered in the Bay Area of northern California. We know startups. We work without minimums or commitments. You pay only for the time you need as you need it.

Many startups and growing companies don’t have UX teams yet. The founders do the UX. The product gal does it. The design intern takes a shot at it. The developers are sure they’re great at laying out interfaces.

Long story short, you might not have any UX professionals on board. You might not be ready to hire for UX. You might not know good from bad UX practitioners. You might have no idea what to budget.

Don’t worry. You’ve discovered your UX partner.
