Introducing our AI Roadmaps

We’re embracing AI. Not as a replacement for the creativity we respect and nurture, but as a means of achieving more.

We’ve dedicated our efforts to identifying and understanding how the field of User Research is being affected by AI. The User Research + AI roadmap features information and tools that help professional researchers integrate AI into their workflow.

Within our roadmap, we identify our top picks as they relate to the common phases of research:

Phase 1: Plan
Phase 2: Conduct
Phase 3: Analyze

If you’ve wondered about whether AI has a place in your research workflow, this is a great place to start.

Roadmaps for designers:

  • Our UX/UI roadmap highlights tools that help professional UX and UI designers integrate AI into their workflow, with an emphasis on Figma.
  • The Photoshop and Illustrator roadmaps feature our results using Adobe’s Firefly AI engine in a professional setting.

Our story

Founded by Hayley Nichols in 2009 with the goal of being a different kind of  design company. Allovus began from the desire to provide creative and technical individuals with opportunities that allow them to have a work/life balance. We still believe that and we work hard as a team to support our number one asset; our people. ​

Our culture

Allovus is a woman-owned equal opportunity employer committed to fostering an inclusive and creative environment. Hayley’s mission for Allovus has remained the same as the company has grown: to treat people with respect and care. Staying true to these values ensures that Allovus employees produce meaningful work, create strong community connections, and inspire delight in our clients.
