We design with technology, empathy, and you.

About us

Whatever the project, our first focus is on people—visitors, users, adopters, customers, clients, creatives, and employees. You and us. That’s what makes our work meaningful.

We love what we do. And we do a lot of different things, from inventing new modes of interactivity on mobile devices or room-sized screens, to coding apps, designing enduring installations, or finding creative ways to make technology disappear from view altogether.

We love a challenge. We research and strategize and prototype. We use our technical know-how, creative could-be, and strategic can-do for cultural and corporate clients near and far, large and small.

Every uniquely tailored project comes from partnering our clients’ expertise with our own.

How can we partner with you?
