About Us

Tactile is a high-touch design consultancy where the creative, technical, and strategic come together. We are made up of industrial and interaction designers who create sought-after products and experiences through research and strategy. We partner with influential and emerging brands to craft industrial, medical and consumer products with lasting relevance. When it comes to design, we believe that practical and enjoyable are not mutually exclusive. Details should be purposeful and nuanced, never gratuitous.

Our collaborative approach to interactive design and product development provides layers of insight throughout each step of the design process. With a foundation of empathy, each project starts with doing the hard work of building and understanding relationships and ends with a product that works for everyone—and looks beautiful, too.
