Beaming Health

Beaming Health is a San Francisco based healthtech startup founded to improve access to care for parents with special needs children. Osborn Design Works (ODW) partnered to build the Beaming Health brand and create a one-of-a-kind custom healthcare provider database with clinic waitlist data and a standardized care taxonomy. We used this database to build a novel provider indexing tool to equip parents to find services, pricing, and waitlist information for care and education.

Osborn Design Works has been AMAZING to work with!

"I get comments every week about our site's design, with comments ranging from 'This is beautiful' to 'Who designed your site and can I work with them asap?'. This is all thanks to Taylor and ODW. He is not just good at making things look nice - he truly approaches UX through a holistic lens. Everything comes back to how can we remove friction and make the experience as easy as possible for the user. Our company (Beaming Health) is small, but because of our design we get people thinking we're a 100+ person company. Designers like Taylor don't come around very often and we feel extremely lucky to get to work with him."

Top-tier web design and development professionals

"The ODW team are top-tier web design and development professionals. I've collaborated with in-house developers, agencies, and freelancers on website projects, and this shop stands out as exceptional. They understand the critical importance of beautiful, visually appealing design for a brand's image and identity. Equally important, they have the technical expertise to ensure a seamless, aesthetically pleasing user experience across all devices and platforms.
Too often, developers lack effective communication skills, miss deadlines, and struggle to implement creative design concepts during the development phase. Taylor's approach is different. He actively consults and collaborates, consistently providing solutions to overcome design and technical hurdles. His team is transparent, responsive, and helpful throughout the entire process.
Taylor's iterative methodology allows for a well-considered, thoroughly vetted final product rather than a rushed, subpar result. The quality of their work is consistently excellent, exceeding expectations. If you require top-tier web design and development services, Taylor and his team should be your first choice."
