With our 20 years of creative strategy, UX, and design experience, Backpack Interactive builds transformative edTech experiences for teachers, students, and learners.

Our Services

A good start makes for a great outcome — and that’s where we come in. Our team of talented strategists, UX, and UI designers use our proven processes to work through the problems, goals, and users of each specific client. We use that data to create successful, efficient, custom-tailored end products. Organizations that embrace smart strategy, UX and UI for their edTech products find that they are more widely adopted, require less professional training and are proven more effective — and we’re focused on building that product for you.

Work Culture

  • 01
    We’re serious about strategy

    We love to learn, research, and ask questions. Our strategy is built around that core concept -- we take the time to understand the problems, goals, and users.

  • 02
    We assume nothing about our users

    The key to empathetic design is a user-centric approach, so we extensively test our new products without assumptions or ego. Every user is different, and every story is crucial in building a successful product.

  • 03
    We believe in the importance of great design

    Great visual presentation simplifies and clarifies the complex. We believe in the power of beautiful design to enable better teaching, learning, and delight.
