Small is Beautiful.

A small (but perfectly formed) design studio exploring where people and technology intersect.

now in Montreal, Canada

Founded by Bryan and Stephanie Rieger, yiibu is a user experience and strategy consultancy that explores the space between technology and people—and what can happen where they intersect.

We work in the areas of product strategy, interaction design, and experience design.

Our business has two parts: a research and foresight studio that uses speculative design to explore issues around automation, algorithms, and the open internet; and a client-facing consulting arm that keeps us firmly rooted in the realities of shipping products for today.

Since our foundation in 2006, we’ve worked with some of the worlds leading technology brands including Expedia, Philips, Nokia, Microsoft, Intel, Opera Software, and Mozilla. After nine years in the UK, you can now find us in Montreal, Canada where we continue to work with companies around the world.

We'd love to hear from you!
