Meet the team
Empathy, kindness, generosity, and receptivity: as a small, tight-knit team, we bring our values to the table alongside our design chops to build meaningful, long-lasting relationships with clients and with each other.
We’re strategists, designers, creative directors, engineers, and project managers who enjoy a good slice of pie, a challenging game of Scrabble, and the Gowanus sunlight that pours in through our studio windows.
