WE ARE ALL ABOUT

Understanding Humans.

(and being understanding Humans)

Understanding

Although we’re a technology company, it’s not the technology that matters most, it’s the human experiences we shape. That’s the important stuff.

WE ARE ALL ABOUT

Magical and useful things.

Magical

We focus on digital tools and applications that improve the lives of the humans that use them. Tools that have helped people advance their careers and education; bettered their efficiency or enjoyment at work.

WE ARE ALL ABOUT

Discovering the possibilities together.

Let's Discover Together!

We’re people people. And technology people. Humanitarians who wield technology to better your business. We engage an agile methodology and approach every project with empathy, humility, and passionate collaboration. Everyone is all in.

Our Clients say things like...

“They made what we formerly perceived as a complicated and daunting task easy and enjoyable, and the end result was beyond our imagination.”

“Hey, come to our barbeque on Saturday.” And, “We had a great time with you helping to build that community garden.”

WE ARE ALL ABOUT

Impacting people’s lives.

Impacting

We want to create work that benefits humanity, whether that’s on-screen or off. So whenever possible, we take our talents outside of our traditional work and get our hands dirty helping where we can. Every year we identify a cause, or causes, and commit ourselves to making a difference for them.

We Focus on people and their mental and physical affordances.

We don’t chase trends. We build the best possible experiences for people, using the best technology available at the time.

We involve the people who are using the product.

Designers and stakeholders have the best intentions at heart. But users ultimately determine the success of a product. We involve real users to validate and direct our approaches.

We’ve been around since before the internet started.

Yes, it’s weird but true, civilization existed before the Internet. Point being, we've seen the pitfalls and successes. We've learned a lot and we’re really good at applying all those lessons to every project we execute.

We love to see the enthusiasm and wide-eyed wonderment that comes when people adopt, and adapt to, new technologies.

We Can
See The Future

Ok, so we’re not claiming to be fortune tellers, but with decades of experience we’ve learned enough to know that when making new products they need to be successful now, and for many years to come. So we always have one eye on what’s ahead.

Spaceship
Grounded

We're Grounded
in the Present

While we carefully tend to the future, our current toolbox leans heavily towards web-based applications, particularly those that are responsive to all device types. We love what’s going on right now with phones and tablets and the whole internet of things.

We Bring Global Together

Our distributed team isn't limited to who’s available in a particular geographic area. When we need a new contributor, whether permanently or temporarily, we search for, and find, the best of the best.

How We Work

We build tools that run on screens. From small screens on phones to huge screens on TVs, and everything in between. We believe the web is The Great Equalizer and it has unmatched potential to improve the lives of everyone on the planet.

We Work in a Distributed Fashion

We can work with the best people, anywhere in the world.

We can work whenever and wherever we can do our best work.

We don’t harm the world (and ourselves) with wasteful commutes.

We have a reliable, agile methodology.

We meet regularly, in-person to excite our collaborative nature.

We use virtual presence tools to conduct conversations, meetings, reviews, and sharing.

Distributed

We are Agile & We are Iterative

Our agile methodology allows us to create phenomenal work with fluctuating teams with remarkable speed. All while allowing us to respond to client requests with immediacy.

Our process is iterative. We look for projects and clients that believe in iteration and the mantra of “release early and often”. We build, we learn, we adjust.

Why We Work

We improve the lives of humans. We care about humans. We act deliberately to help and not hurt humankind. We have empathy and humility.

To Delight Humans

We build interfaces around the humans that will use them. By focusing on the capabilities and limitations of humans—from the mental to the motor—we can ensure products that delight their human users. The particulars of a given device are just implementation details, albeit intrinsic to its success and therefore never overlooked.

Humans

To Do What Really Matters

We respect the people we work with: from employees, to contractors, to clients and partners. Work is a subset of these humans’ lives. By doing work that matters in a way that engages, and delivering exciting results, we expect the people we work with to be enthusiastic about working with us. We haven’t been let down yet.

To Make Life Better

We look for opportunity to improve other lives in our community. Locally, regionally, nationally, and internationally, we strive to be humanitarians in the truest sense of the word and dedicate a portion of our hands, minds and revenues to humanitarian initiatives.

We work with companies and organizations that understand that humans will use their tools and makes those humans the primary drivers of their products.

The Work

We adore our clients. To have such affection, we make sure we're on the same page as our partners both on a project and personal level. We welcome clients into our agency, and encourage participation in our outreach efforts.
