Let's Talk

Flexible Engagement Models

At Blue Label Labs, we understand the various design and development-related challenges that news and media organizations face. So many different projects and initiatives often means digital roadmaps get overlooked and deprioritized.

For example, if your front-end developers and designers are too busy working on your other projects but your back-end team has bandwidth, we can provide a team to supplement yours in the areas you need.

Alternatively, we could handle all your needs from product strategy and design to front-end development and back-end/CMS development.

Cutting-edge features that make your app successful

While newspapers may be struggling, the news and media sector is thriving. Rather than getting the news delivered to our doorsteps, we now consume the same information on our smartphones and tablets.

What separates top-rated news and media apps from the rest is absolutely perfecting the below set of features and functionality:

“Blue Label’s team designed an exceptional app that has increased usage eightfold. In the first week of its launch, the app ranked No. 2 for news apps in the App Store.”

What We Do
We build and transform businesses through strategy, design and app development.

Inspired by the now-famous Google Ventures methodology, each project starts with an intense, 5-day discovery process that ends with empirical validation with real clients.

Using the insights from the Design Sprint (if the effort started with one), your Product Team will continue to flesh out the vision for the product and its positioning in the market.

Depending on the product need, we can either move into a full product brand design engagement; adopt an existing brand and associated guidelines; or modify an existing brand.

Simplicity is the ultimate sophistication. Work with our Product Design team to create an elegant design that incorporates the latest trends and capabilities.

Agility is the name of the game. Our scrum-based Agile development methodology ensures frequent builds and gives you plenty of time to test and adjust. While our experienced Quality Assurance (QA) team will identify and manage testing.

No app launch plan is complete without the proper marketing, PR and engagement tools to help it get discovered and retain users.

The journey of a digital product doesn’t end at launch, it begins. Having a team like Blue Label Labs to continue to support the product long-term and determine how to improve it over time is the difference between a successful product and one that’s destined for the graveyard.
