1 Design is a process, not a product.
Sure, design is a discipline. But it’s also how we think about the world. It’s our job to apply systems that bring order to chaos, make the world a better place and breathe life into brands.
2 Art and science live side-by-side.
We’re empirical by nature. It’s our job to leverage a creative toolkit to help your brand thrive, but you have to know when to use your eye and when to break out the level. Here, rationale rules and data drives.
3 Transparency is key.
We’ll over-share, we won’t be hard to find, we’ll welcome your feedback and you’ll have direct access to your creative team. We want to deliver the kind of surprises that put a smile on your face, not the ones that leave you scratching your head.
4 People come first.
Real talk: none of the above matters if what we do doesn’t honor actual human beings. Not only is it our job to put people at the center of the design process, we take our status as a B Corp seriously. To us, there is no success without benefit to the greater good.
People make a difference. Design can help them make that difference happen. So naturally we decided to become a B Corporation. We were certified in 2016, and are proud to be part of a movement where businesses both make money and make lives better for their employees, the community and the environment.
We donate 5% of your time through pro-bono services. We choose our partners carefully so we can be sure our investment of time and services has maximum impact on the community.
