Build Your Design Team

Bypass internal hiring overhead by leveraging a team of Trailmerge SaaS UX specialists to launch and scale your product design.

Perfect for

  • B2B SaaS product teams looking for a design leader or first designer
  • Seed round or Series A startups

Product Design Strategy

Collaboration with product owners on feature prioritization and design project planning from a UX perspective.

Embedded UX Team

Two or more dedicated designers available for ongoing support and adapting to your team's communication flow.

Cross-Functional Collaboration

Consistent communication and collaboration between your Trailmerge designers and your product, dev, and other teams.

Are you struggling with vetting quality UX designers who can fit in your SaaS context? Are you not quite ready to commit the extra overhead for full-time W-2 designers? We dedicate product designers starting at a low commitment to act as your startup's design team.

Your Trailmerge team is in it for the long haul of your product lifecycle, laying the foundation for user and dev-friendly designs. We give you flexibility as well, making it easy to scale the team as you grow.

Our Process

Learn from users and stakeholders

We utilize a variety of UX research methods to ensure our design work starts off and remains with end users at the center.

Establish product design processes

Drawing on our SaaS design experience, we define efficient design processes in the context of your Agile workflow.

Build a design system

We leverage design best practices to create a custom UI component library in Figma that can be used across your platform.

Collaborate across teams

In addition to your product and dev teams, we bring other departments into the process to design with a broader understanding.

Build dev-ready designs

We create design deliverables with your developers in mind: well-annotated mockups in Figma and thorough user stories.

Provide ongoing Agile support

We adapt to your team's Agile rhythms (and can recommend what we've seen work well), supporting your devs and PMs in their roles.
