about

WELCOME TO THE LAB

Subatomic is a small digital experience and gamification agency located in Amsterdam. We’re pros at finding the subatomic particles that engage and motivate your audience. And, unlike CERN, *ahem*, our work has an absolute 0% chance of destroying the universe.*

*Though we’re not entirely convinced that our office supply closet doesn’t have a black hole in it … we’re a few office supplies down.

ENERGIZE

ENERGIZE

Our 4- or 8-hour intesive work session designed to get you moving forward fast. One-on-one help on, basically, anything.

EXPERIMENT

EXPERIMENT

In a few sessions, we’ll channel MacGyver to find creative, low effort, solutions you can start testing straight away.

WORK SIDE-BY-SIDE

WORK SIDE-BY-SIDE

We’re too geeky to say consultancy, but let’s call it what it is. We all need a little help from the force at times.

(MINI-) DESIGN SPRINT

(MINI-) DESIGN SPRINT

3-5 day sprint to flush out the user journey, start sketching, and ultimately, prepare a storyboard for a release.

PROTOTYPE

PROTOTYPE

From fake it ’til you make it to custom development, we’ll get a prototype up and running, to test, in < 5 days.

BUILD

BUILD

If you bring it we will build it. Full front-end development. Awesome sauce, right? No “one-size-fit-all” here.

RESISTANCE IS FUTILE

OK, so quoting the Borg may come off a little strong here, but we truly believe in a well designed experience engagement comes naturally. Our philosophy?

NARRATIVE

Your narrative is the core of your experience. We will help you pinpoint the story you want to tell, and why you want to tell it. Ask yourself, what behavior are you hoping to change? Everything about the design of your system should facilitate your narrative. The tools are secondary to the story itself.

THE JOURNEY

Engagement comes when your users’ experience brings them as close as possible to your narrative. Knowing your user journey is a must, be it a new product, or just a new feature in an existing one. Ask, what does the user need to do to complete the flow? Sound complex? Don’t worry, we are experts at mapping this out.

ENGAGEMENT

Now you’ll start designing your system using (game) mechanics, additional narratives, and/or structure. The mechanics should work together to keep the user motivated, and engaged. Even if a mechanic works in a popular product, doesn’t mean it’ll work for you. Design with your purpose in mind.

OUR LAB PARTNERS

We love working in the lab with our partners in crime design, from around the world. Despite questionably letting our inner pun dog with our bad puns, we know we’re who you need to, like we have for our clients, create true engagement.
