A good interface is not only beautiful but also focuses on user-friendliness. We always strive for modern designs with an intuitive user experience.

In all our UX design processes, we follow a step-by-step plan that is structured around five different phases, the 5D model.

We'll start with the Discover phase, aimed at gathering the necessary context and knowledge. This knowledge serves as a basis for the subsequent Define phase, in which we develop various wireframes based on a sitemap. These wireframes are simple sketches that visually depict users' actions without style or color.

Next, we go to the Design phase, where we implement the corporate identity and use our creativity to shape the user interface. Once approved, the project will proceed to the Develop phase, in which we meticulously bring the design to life. When it comes to a website process, we convert the designs into a living website in this phase. In a web application, we first build the design via a prototype (clickable mockups or a low-code prototype).

Finally, we present in the Deliver phase the completed project according to the predefined deliverables.


In the rapidly changing landscape of technology and operations, we offer the expertise of a CTO (Chief Technology Officer) without the need for a full-time position with our CTO-as-a-Service service. Our CTO-aaS solution is specifically designed for start-ups, scale-ups and SMEs that want to lead the way in their sector. Whether it's building a technical strategy, managing risk, or leading your technology transformation, our experienced CTOs are your key to success.

Why CTO-as-a-Service at Unikoo?

For many startups and SMEs, hiring a full-time CTO can be a major financial and organizational challenge. In this way, we offer a flexible solution that grows with your business. Our CTOs help you develop technical roadmaps, build leadership within teams, and promote product innovation. In doing so, they start from the general business vision and translate it into the technology strategy.

How we help you grow

We want to make the digitization process and introduction of new technology manageable. The implementation of a CTO's range of tasks depends heavily on the business context and intended (growth) strategy. We use it as a denominator to determine the tech strategy and operations, and ideally also consider the broader digital strategy. We make a distinction between a first strategic part and a subsequent operational part.

With Unikoo, we strive for long-term collaboration by continuously focusing on added value creation and honest collaborations. We always start our collaboration with a landscape assessment in which we map business processes, data flows and actors of organizations. This way, we get a good overall picture and complexity of the environment in order to make the best recommendations.

Based on these insights, milestones are defined according to strategic priority and (budget) capacity so that a long-term digital vision and compatible, modular architecture can be established. We remain true to our pragmatic approach (no needlessly long preliminary study) but we do not take a hasty approach, as we so often see with companies that have grown organically - because in the long run, this usually leads to a more expensive and more inhibitory approach. We continue to focus on the low hanging fruits without losing sight of the bigger picture
