What We Do

Red F Design specialise in design for digital applications - both web-based and mobile. We always keep the user front of mind: Making the user interface (UI) intuitive to use whilst optimising the screen real-estate for the target platform. We use popular and innovative gamification technications to enhance the user experience (UX), thus enhancing the engagement and retention of the users.

Whilst games and gamification are two very different things, Red F Design have experience in game design. We like to use this experience for good causes and have a passion for helping people learn. We have contributed to Serious Games and Business Simulations, Social Learning & eLearning projects.

We offer our services to clients to help them develop anidea from conceptulization through to development.

DESIGN

Red F Design specialise in design.
Do you want to increase engagement and interaction on your website? Do you need assistance with designing immersive games or in making your apps more intuitive to use? Let us help you! Whether you need help conceptulising your next idea, a logo for your website or even just a name for a product -We can help with all aspects of design!

DEVELOPMENT

What if I want more than just the design?
Don't worry - we can help you with that too! Where possible, development will be carried out internally. However, depending on our resource or the scale of the project, Red F Design have carefully selected partners & third parties to ensure you get a premium service with the product you need at the end of it.

CONSULTING

We understand that sometimes all you need is a little guidence. Gamification is a relatively new term - becoming more widely adopted, but still often misunderstood and misused. Mobile applications are becoming increasingly more popular and businesses late to the mark in getting online suffering. If your business needs help understanding these new terms and the tech' that's driving it, please, don't get left behind - let us help you!

Support

Depending on the package you choose, Red F Design can offer lifetime support for products designed and/ or developed, by us, for your business. This spans from minor tweaks through to the maintenance and upgrades of your products.

If you need our support, please use the details in the contact us section.

About Us

Red F Design is an independant design consultancy based in Bristol, United Kingdom. We focus on the design of Games and Gamified Web & Tablet Apps. We work with our clients to develop an idea from conceptulization through to development.

Our Philosophy

At Red F, we love games and love to connect with people who love games too! Games and gamification provide means of generating easy to navigate, intuitive to use, immersive and engaging interactive experiences.. When we are not working our own ideas, we can help you develop yours. Discuss your concept with us and let us make it come to life!

    Conceptulisation

    Design is what we do best. You don't necessarily have to come to use with an idea - we can help with the concepts too! Our designers can often visualise ideas in their heads almost immediately, even when the only information we have is a theme or a few ideas. Don't believe us? Put us to the test! We can produce interactive mockups to help you see the vision too.

    Game Design

    From industry standard design documentation ((Design Dodumentation Game Design Documents (GDD's), Interaction Design Documents (IDD's), Technical Design Documents (TDD's) and Full Milestone Schedules (FMS)), to concept art, proof of concepts and the games themselves - we can do it all. Need something engaging on your website? A game is a great place to start. Why not let us add a unique learning twist too.

    Web & App Design

    We don't just deal with interactive design. We can design cross-platform applications suitable for both mobile and tablets - making most of the target platforms hardware and making the best use of the available screen space. We can apply popular & innovateive gamification techniques (beyond the standard points, badges, leaderboards typically used) to enhance the experiece/

    Development

    Where possible we will handle development in house. Where this isn't possible, we will source the development with trusted partners or carefully selected third parties. Talk to use about pricing.

Our Mission

Our mission is to deliver total customer satisfaction. Our ultimate goal is to become the UK's biggest (graduate) crowd sourcing community: It wasn't long ago when our founder was a second-year student looking for a placement - but struggled because lack of experience in the industry. We want to help students and other talented young adults get the experience they need to enhance (or even kickstart) their future careers, while delivering you, our customer, with the same top quality products you'd come to expect from any other provider

It wasn't long ago when I was a second year student looking for a placement year in the Games Industry, but struggled to get one because of the tough competition and was beaten by others with more experience than I had...

Our Skills

Game Design ( 90% )

Web & App Design ( 85% )

Development ( 70% )

Consulting & training ( 80% )

My goal is a very personal one: To help the students of today, in the position I was back then. The basic idea is our clients will get the same high-quality products they can expect from any other provider, whilst I get to do what I love in designing, and students of today benefit from the experience of real world projects and a written recommendation or reference at the end of it!
