    Agency UX is built upon the philosophy that the best designs are ones that offer practical uses for both the clients and their customers. The agency specializes in UX/UI, web, and product design, primarily geared towards enterprises from the advertising, e-commerce, and business services industries.

    As an example of their work, Agency UX helped redesign Places to Sea, a cruise finding platform. The original design was deemed too complex for users to work with, and Agency UX had to make the platform simple enough while still giving search control to users. Using a swipe-voting system, the platform now recommends cruises based on the images that the user selected.
