Our Mission

At Spatial, it is our mission to bring human-centred design practices to large organizations to support innovation.

Our Background

Spatial (originally Niiu Digital), was founded in 2012.
With deep roots in digital product design and user research, what drives our work is a sense of curiosity in human behaviour and the impact of technology on our lives.

Clients trust us to deliver strategy, research and design work that has impact. We uncover insights and opportunities that lead to competitive advantage and transformational change.

Our Philosophy

Human Centered

We follow a user centered design methodology – bringing empathy and user feedback into the design process.

Data Oriented

We bring data analysis and performance management strategies together with user research to inform design direction and decisions.


We work collaboratively with cross-functional teams, bringing together business, operational and technical teams.

Our Team

Spatial has a talented and hard-working team of consultants, researchers and UX designers from a diversity of backgrounds. Every project is backed by senior consultants with extensive product, design and research experience.
