The M Blog

What’s new with us? Just this amazing thing called our blog. Here’s where we write down all our thoughts and feelings for all to read. Have at it!

Listening to music has become a way of life for a lot of people and is definitely a huge part of our day. Whether we are at home, driving, commuting, studying, walking, or working, we always tend to have our Spotify on the go or the radio on. For this reason, this week’s review will be about a product
Every design agency in the world has their own process when it comes to designing and producing great products. At MiniCorp, we are no different to everyone else. We have spent years refining our process and the best way for us to consistently ship stellar products for our clients.
At MiniCorp, we highly value focus. We only take one large product on at a time to allow input from all of our team members. This dedicated team focus allows us to understand the challenge, the product and what we need to accomplish in the first iteration in order to successfully launch it.
Here at Minicorp we use the Ruby on Rails web application framework for the majority of our client projects. The beauty of the Rails framework is the amount of quality open source gems that are at our disposal.
I always look at products as icebergs: the end user only gets to see 1/10 of it, while the bulk is buried deep down. And, while the process of creating a product is a journey that starts with an idea and ends with a useful tool, it has different stops along the way that forge the product.
So, the crew here at MiniCorp have been using Revolut for the past few months. After a few teething problems at the beginning with cards not working on certain things, it seems that the banking alternative has hit it’s stride and we are loving it! Here are just a few features that have really impressed us so far:
Hey everyone! I’m Andy, I am the Product Designer here at MiniCorp. In this monthly blog series, I list and share my thoughts on my Top 5 favourite UI/Interactions/Designs from the past month. Hope you enjoy 👌
When I landed my first job in design, the joy was so overwhelming that I thought I might be brought back down to earth once I started. Maybe the role would be too demanding for someone without a lot of experience in the industry. Perhaps I wouldn’t get on with the people I will be working with.
Throughout my time searching for Product Design jobs, one question always arose in interviews: “Have you any experience collaborating with/handing off designs to developers?”. It was very early in my design career and I had very little experience in this area.
The meaning of the word entrepreneur has evolved. How entrepreneurship is defined now is drastically different to how it was 5+ years ago.
One of the most fun and exciting things about working at MiniCorp is getting to meet entrepreneurs and discussing their ideas for their product. We’ve had a lot of those meetings in the past few weeks and months, and I’ve spotted some trends that can have a huge impact on how quickly those products get launched.
We hope you've been enjoying getting to know the MiniCorp team! This week, we introduce you to the Steve Thornton, our senior software engineer.
Here at MiniCorp, we use the Ruby on Rails web application framework for the majority of our client projects. The beauty of the Rails framework is the amount of quality open source tools – aptly-named gems – that are at our disposal. The gems listed below are just a handful of the ones that we love and use the most

Let's do launch!
