Meet the team
Our interdisciplinary team is deeply invested in the power of design to communicate ideas, spark emotions, and effect change.
Belonging, integrity, balance, openness, and wonder: As a small, tight-knit team, we bring our values to the table alongside our strategy and design chops to build meaningful, long-lasting relationships with clients and with each other.
We’re a passionate team of strategists, designers, project managers, and engineers who enjoy a good slice of pie, picnics in the park, and teaching each other how to cook our favorite meals.
