#Better Connected Thinking
starts with a simple question

How are you today?

Solve and Evolve

We are Nexus®, the Human Centred Design company trying to do better things.
We invent, design, create, build and embed functions into peoples lives that give them more control today than they had yesterday.

Human Centred Design is the combination of basic scientific research and human-oriented design thinking. Behavioural scientists in the fields of psychology and economics are producing reams of research about human behaviour. We place those human needs and limitations in a higher priority compared with other targets during the design thinking and production differential stages.

We turn human insights into non-linear products and services that make happier hippos, safer experiences and more insightful worlds. We start with a simple question – “What is the behaviour we’re trying to break or create” and then move forward into designing solutions that track, learn and use contemporary technologies to evolve an audience.

Technology that makes us more human.

We create

Smart experiences that teachguide and inspire people to change.

The Art of Experimentation

Our philosophy is that before you can create products, you have to learn through experiments. So we’ll plan, plot and launch digital experiments for you to help you learn quickly about the habits of your audience which you can use to define your MVP. By learning through data experiments in technology you’ll know that when the final product launches it will be a game changer.

This... you are going to love!

Is there a secret to triggering habits in people so that they’ll engage and keep engaging with whatever it is you create? Nexus showed us in their fascinating SXSW talk, “Is there a Neurological Recipe for Success?“, they shared some principles that they have distilled over the years from psychology, behavioral, and experimental economics and observations of the human animal – Themselves.

Nexus.Help help_logo

With almost 10 million British adults diagnosed with at least one mental health problem every single year the impact on our industry is huge. Which is why we’ve set up Nexus.Help, a safe place to come and seek help, advice and support for your mental health worries. Our aim is to create a movement of all types of people from CEOs to Graduates who can come together to raise the volume around the message that love and support are louder than any internal or external voice that brings us down, in the most inclusive and understanding industry in the world.

Keep a HIPPO in your pocket help_logo

91% of people keep their smart phone within 3 feet of themselves, 24 hours a day. The average person checks their phones 150 times a day and often spend as much as 177 minutes on their devices per day. Mobile sessions average a mere one minute and 10 seconds long, dozens and dozens of times per day.

The trial for HIPPO – A totally new kind of behavioural monitoring application –  will start in the Spring of 2016 with the aim of helping people learn about their patterns and give them visibility of their behaviours.
