You mean results. So do we.

If design fails to drive business value to the stakeholders then it's just art. We don't do art.

Everything that we do is focussed on delivering tangible results to our partners month on month. If there's any process, step or method we use that doesn't add direct value to the product and its results, we wouldn't do it - even if it's regarded as a 'standard industry practise'. For us, innovation is about being ever critical of the methods we use.

Metastate had a very clear product mindset

...and were able to deliver a product at a significantly lower cost and quicker turnaround times than established companies with more resources and bandwidth.

Cut the agency slack

Built and ship products faster across multiple-industry verticals

We are everything an agency is not. Questioning and challenging existing processes is a part of our DNA, and we never do something just because it's an "industry standard". We are fast, innovative and cut to the chase quickly. No wasteful work, no weeks of mundane research and end of the cycle delivery. We employ structured and intense sprints to deliver tangible results week on week. Period.

01

No wasteful work

As a team, we avoid busy & wasteful work which doesn't add tangible value to the product direction. Every human hour that goes into the project has direct & measurable impact on its overall execution. No more end of the cycle delivery & no more weeks of open ended research - just consistent week on week delivery.

02

We work fast - tangible results every week

We provide tangible assets for review and collaboration every week. All the steps we take, research we do and the elements we create emerge out of our key foundational principle to improve the product continuously.

03

Begin with test workshop

Sustainability is one of our core principles at Metastate. Before we sign off on any project, we do a 3 day intense workshop where we take a piece of the project and create a working prototype. This will act as a forum to discuss & gauge the team’s compatibility, mutual vision alignment and capability to handle the project.

04

No more end of the cycle feedback 

Projects often get toppled owing to misplaced feedback sessions. For us, feedback is’t a step in the process, but rather the very foundation driving the execution. With feedback coming in every week, the teams are able to move fast, pivot faster and enjoy a higher level of control on the execution. This also reduces guesswork and the ‘anxiety before delivery’ which often plagues SaaS projects.

05

Engineering focussed

Products are built by engineering teams as much as by design. As a part of our process, we bring in the engineering team early in the product cycle to play a primary role in project direction, and also in laying foundation to accommodate parallel design & engineering roadmaps.

The smaller the roadmap, the better

Planning weeks on a project roadmap doesn't shield it from delays. Keeping the scope and roadmaps flexible, and limiting it to 2-3 week micro-goals is a great way to improve the speed, efficiency, and success rate of projects.
