Any creative project is intrinsically unique and should be treated as such. The process developed and employed by Harlo is a flexible framework designed to maximize time effectiveness and successful client outcomes. Our approach balances data and research driven decisions with a wealth of experience to create the most powerful solutions possible.



Dialogue and discussion are the most important facets of a successful creative process. Our aim is to develop a meaningful understanding of our client’s motivations and aspirations through effective communication, and then apply that information to our research and analysis process.

Quantitative and qualitative data is combined with visual research and our personal expertise to generate solutions tailored to address specific client needs and goals.



Even the best research is worthless without proper interpretation and application. We apply the lessons learned during our analysis and generate a broad range of novel solutions for problems both simple and complex.

We discuss and debate these solutions both internally and with our client in an effort to arrive at the most effective and innovative outcomes possible. Once a solution is finalized we develop an implementation and roll-out procedure.



Effective execution is a crucial component to ensuring success for creative solutions. We utilize a carefully measured approch to implementation that actively involves testing amongst ourselves, our clients and their customers prior to roll-out.

Our process ensures a successful and stunning initial experience that is continually monitored and adjusted as necessary; helping to foster increased brand recognition and satisfaction.

Client Testimonials

  • "Our Web site redesign was an extremely large and complicated project, and Harlo handled it beautifully. They walked us through each step of the process and were happy to answer questions. Their creative incorporated all of the objectives we were trying to meet and provided us with an elegant Web presence that really stands out in our industry and serves each of our target audiences.

    We continue to use Harlo for a variety of Web development and marketing projects."

    “Working with Harlo was a pleasure, a good value, and a success. For starters, and throughout the design process, they really listened to me. Moreover, they delivered on time with each iteration. And I think they nailed the design. I like the fact that they have one foot in the design world and another in the software development world. I think that combination results in truly effective, robust design – and design that will abide the changing aesthetic and technical landscape over the coming years.”

  • "Working in marketing and business development in Portland, I had used several web design agencies prior to discovering Harlo Interactive and none of them came close to providing such an all-inclusive, professional service in such a personalized manner. 

    I am always impressed with how knowledgeable the engineers, web developers and designers are at Harlo. Their customer service is extraordinary, they are fun to work with and I feel completely confident in recommending Harlo!"

    "We asked Harlo to develop a sophisticated looking but easy to manage e-commerce platform. We set a deadline for completion and a strict budget. The fellas at Harlo worked through a holiday weekend to make sure that our site launched without a hitch.

    I can pay no higher compliment: we got exactly what we asked for when we asked for it and at the agreed price. We look forward to working with Harlo as a partner on all of our web endeavors."
