We’re into simple.
Sometimes clever works, but often, it looks forced. We live in an era where citizens and consumers see through clever ... but appreciate smart. Smart is often simple—always has been, always will be. Simple as in clean. Authentic. Elegant.
We like to stretch.
No problem has one solution, and new ways of approaching things are always exciting. We’ll consider anything, so long as it’s the most effective and efficient solution for the project goal.
We have friends in important places.
We assemble teams based on project requirements. Sometimes it’s just us, and sometimes we bring in backup. We have a close-knit network of collaborators that includes programmers, designers, and subject specialists. We bring the best to bear on each project we take on.
We embrace our inner geek.
Being a geek just means you’re wildly passionate about something. We’re passionate about lots, so we’re pretty geeky. But people still go out with us in public.
We get around.
Borders mean nothing to us. (Okay, they mean we love Skype, and we sometimes work very early or very late). Our diverse clients are based all over—coast to coast in Canada and beyond.
You can bribe us with food.
Need to squeeze a deadline? Want something above and beyond from us? We’re unrepentant chowhounds; catch us in a food haze and anything’s possible.
But don’t take our word for it ... check out what our clients are saying!
