Empire Elements are full-service development partners. Instead of offering them visual content from the start, we first talked through the process of how we wanted the app to work. Through that process, we verbally outlined some rough designs for them to iterate. They put together several wireframes and presented the options to us. Our ideas changed frequently, but their team is patient enough to facilitate that kind of approach. Once we finalized an interface, they started building the platform and implemented their UI/UX.
