black sheep press
Black Sheep Press are providers of speech and language resources for children.
"Our one regret is that we did not involve Keepitusable at the design stage - we will next time!
We asked Keepitusable to provide a usability report on an iPad app that was nearing completion. The report proved to be extremely useful: detailed, concise, constructive and comprehensive, improving every screen.
Every sentence spelt out the changes required and why. The format enabled our programmers to easily see the need for changes and everyone could accept the proposals without feeling devalued. The changes will have a major positive impact on the users’ experience.
I wholeheartedly recommend Keepitusable to anyone who cares about the usability of their applications.
Great to work with and value for money."

KeepHopeMaternityOpen : local maternity unit campaign
"Keepitusable have been an integral part of our campaign team and we are most grateful to them for their tireless support, commitment and 24/7 availability! The design work and features on the web site they created for us were excellent and the site attracted many visitors, who were then directed to sign the on-line petition. Their advice on marketing issues - from design to emarketing to branding - has been invaluable and we would not have achieved the coverage and profile we did without their assistance, especially in such a short timeframe. We would not hesitate in recommending Keepitusable."
