We’re a digital product design studio working exclusively with early-stage startups

Our studio

Never Before Seen is the design studio of Jeremy Blaze, a product designer and strategist based in Melbourne, AU.

Having both worked at and founded startups, Jeremy grew tired of engaging agencies that were slow and inflexible. NBS was created to solve this. We work exclusively in the fast-paced, chaotic world of young startups.

Your partners in design

Design is too often one of the last skillsets hired for at a startup. We're setup to serve as an in-house design team for startups who don't yet have an in-house design team. Whether it's branding, UX, web design, illustration or motion design, we have it covered.

Think big, start small

Our product philosophy centers around launching with the simplest solution that ticks all the boxes. This mindset puts the product in the hands of real users early, letting us fail fast and more quickly hone in on product-market fit.

How we work

πŸ”
Tailor-made teams

Every project has different requirements, and we hand pick the team members based on those requirements from our global pool of freelancers.

✈️
Fully remote & independent

Our team is global, remote and comprised entirely of freelancers. We pick the very best talent wherever they hail from — be it New York City or Belgrade. We capitalize on freelancers' high output levels and eliminate excess staffing costs found at most agencies.

πŸ‘¨β€πŸ’Ό
One design leader

All projects are lead by Jeremy Blaze, a startup veteran and our founder and design lead. He'll be your primary contact, and will manage all team members to ensure a cohesive design is reached across all work.
