We’re known nationally for solving complex, information-rich problems for many types of clients including Fortune 500s and nonprofits. Our projects blend business strategy and visual communication to present complex and important stories to business and consumer audiences with unusual clarity.

We seek people like us who love design and believe in it, want to collaborate with a great team, value curiosity and learning, and like to work hard while having fun. We tackle challenging projects for clients large and small in a light-filled riverfront office on Pittsburgh’s South Side.

Products include websites, web apps, eLearning, and data visualization.

UI designers at ThoughtForm work hand in hand with strategists and writers, as well as directly with clients. Our environment is self-driven and highly collaborative.
