Mobile app design that resonates with users and leaves a lasting impression. Our design team combine intuitive user experiences with bespoke interface designs, following a user-centric process to design mobile apps that use technical understanding to put the user at the heart of everything we do.
What’s your message?
We believe in collaborating closely with our partners to express your brands vision in a way which inspires and excites audiences to get behind your cause.
Designing experiences which are as intuitive as they are engaging, our mobile apps are more than skin-deep and have the depth to truly shape perceptions of any organisation we work with.
Our challenge was taking the beautifully printed children's book, Lost My Name, and creating a digital counterpart which could create the same sentimental experience between children and parents, by telling stories unique to each and every individual user. The Wonderbly app lets children create stories based on different characters for each letter in their name, here's how we designed the iPhone and iPad app to be intuitive enough for children to both understand and engage with.
In App Store's 'new apps we love'
Global Forest Watch
With deforestation destroying the earth’s most fragile ecosystem, we partnered with Global Forest Watch to develop a conservation app that empowered environmental defenders. Letting users monitor areas of forest and report on evidence on deforestation in their regions.
Tree cover loss in 2017
In an effort to save species and give nature a home, The RSPB (Royal Society for the Protection of Birds) approached 3 Sided Cube with the idea of giving their supporters everything they needed to contribute towards the charity's cause from the comfort of their own homes. We designed a mobile app which gave users min projects that could be personalised by the size of garden, number of people and amount of time that people had available.

We’re passionate about collaborating with exciting brands and inspiring organisations trying to solve the impossible. Let’s get together and figure out how a mobile app can help achieve your mission and bring your vision to life.
Our process is trialled and tested through years of designing experiences and interfaces that users adore. Working alongside inspirational brands to bring their vision to life and change the way communities perceive them. From sketching initial ideas to prototyping low-fidelity designs, here’s what we do in the realms of mobile app design.
Our Discover workshops are articulated to build a shared understanding of the problem you're trying to solve, user research and work finished to date, your desired outcomes and current technical architecture.
Our collaborative ideation workshops take what we’ve learnt from the discover phase and focuses on turning them into potential solutions, of which we can explore and further define.
Defining a set of features and an initial information architecture, which we can wireframe and prototype to user test later down the line. We also define the first pass of user stories and acceptance criteria.
Testing our concepts, wireframes and prototypes with users across the globe, in either face-to-face or remote testing sessions.
Refine concepts, wireframes, prototypes and designs based on user feedback and the elements of the project which adds the most value to your end-users.
Adapting designs based on information from the user research, discover and define stages, to inform wireframes and high-fidelity designs which give a more finalised version of the finished product.
Handing over the final, high-fidelity designs, flows and component libraries to the developers to begin building, testing and releasing to the app stores.
Receiving feedback from end-users before and after the release of projects to ensure that our apps are performing as highly as they should be, providing constant improvement plans and project roadmaps.
Working with our clients to make sure their products are continually improving by introducing new feature requests and handling usability issues.
Our design philosophy, strategy and process mean we can approach any app development project with a solid understanding of how different audiences interact with brands on mobile. Whether it’s life-saving content during natural disasters or unique stories for children, we design mobile apps that resonate with audiences in any niche.
"We value their thorough project management approach. Compared to past vendors I’ve worked with, 3 SIDED CUBE is highly responsive and well-organised."
"They worked under a super tight timeline and delivered the product ahead of schedule. They’re significantly more affordable than similar vendors."
"We really like that 3 Sided Cube approaches our work as a partner more than as a customer. We've had smashing success with millions of downloads"
With experience in branding, animation, print and digital, our design team bring together knowledge from a range of different backgrounds to design apps which innovate the way communities interact with brands on mobile.
At the start of any app development project, we research and discuss your ideas, business, goals and users to roadmap projects and make sure we’re building a solution fit for purpose. This allows us to prioritise features and functionality based on all of the above, informing not only how the app looks and feels, but also how users will engage and interact with any given solution.
Our app design team use Sketch and Zeplin to map out user journeys and create examples of how users will interact with apps and various screens within them. Architecting features, functionality and content while ensuring that these are presented and prioritised in a way which adds the most value to end users.
At this stage, we create low-fidelity designs which mimic the way users will interact with any given app. Providing both interfaces and user journeys that map out the apps architecture and ensures it provides users with everything they need, in a way which adds the most value to their experience with your brand.
Rapid prototyping and design sprints ensure that after we’ve designed certain aspects of apps, they’re tested with users in the real world, gaining insights and feedback that help inform adapted designs and iterations. This stage ensures we’re designing apps in a way which is defined by the people actually using them.
Once our apps have gone through development to get the backend functionality built, our final, high-fidelity designs incorporate things like typography, iconography, illustration and animations. Incorporating brand elements and polishing our mobile app designs to make them not only beautiful to look at, but engaging and appealing to interact with.
