We're a User Experience Design Studio in Toronto, Canada.


We started tUX to provide a partnership based approach to help founders grow their businesses through product strategy & UX design.

Amazing partnerships with great startups.

Design Cofounders


In January 2014, we launched Design Co-founders (DC), a program to help bridge the financial gap between startups and their design needs. We work with 1-2 DC companies each quarter on an ongoing basis to help them reach their business goals through product design & development.

We give preference to startups that have been accepted into an accelerator or incubator, or to ones that have active advisors with some type of business traction.

DC companies receive design service grants from tailoredUX. We also provide support in product strategy throughout our partnership, & facilitated access to mentors and advisors in the Toronto community ‐ all with the end goal of helping your business take off.

Each startup and relationship is different, & we tailor our collaborations on an individual basis.

DC Partners have come out of The Digital Media Zone (DMZ) at Ryerson University, CSI, Haltech & MaRS.

Design Cofounders has just partnered with The Centre for Social Innovation (CSI) to offer unique DC services to recipients of the  Ontario Catapult Microloan Fund for Social Ventures.

Interested in DC? Send us an e-mail with your story. Please include the program that you're in (or applying to), a little bit about yourself and your founding partners (if any) and your roadmap for the next 3-6 months. Please put Design Cofounders Program in the subject line.

Join our growing network

We'd love to talk to smart people that want to work with us, startup advisors, mentors, early stage angel investors, startups interested in partnerships, or writers that want to learn more about and share our story.


Are you any of these people above? Send us an e-mail and we'll get back to you fairly quickly.
