RETHINKING A NEW AND SIMPLIFIED MOBILE-FIRST EXPERIENCE
Madison Reed wanted to completely rethink a targeted experience with the goal of tripling first time visitor conversion in record time. We helped the marketing, digital, product, growth, customer service, and data analytics teams at Madison Reed completely re-define, conceptualize, and prototype a new mobile first experience in a one week Design Sprint.

Make a Difference"The SIX did an amazing job facilitating the design sprint workshop. Kandis and Elaine were well prepared with extensive research, were meticulous, enabled us to make informed recommendations and will make a difference in at least 10 young girls' lives this year, alone. I look forward working with The SIX again."

Transform"The SIX has helped pioneer the introduction and adoption of design thinking across our organization. They are exceptional transformation strategists and design thinking facilitators. They have this innate ability to understand how to bring about transformative cultural change, work with teams on changing the mindsets, and develop the infrastructure to make change sustainable."

Accelerate"I highly recommend The SIX as experience strategists. Working with Diana and her team is very refreshing. Though very experienced, they were also empathetic, flexible, and quick to align with what we needed in our organization. What has taken most companies over a year to compile, we were able to complete in 3 months with details to accelerate implementation. The team delivered beyond our expectations."
— Sue C., IT Leader
