What we value in design

  • Human

    Many things in this world can be improved. Mindlessly replacing every piece of paper with a screen is not the answer. The human experience should be front and center. Sometimes the best UI is no UI.

  • Enabling

    Computers give us superpowers and are enablers to do great things. We see computers as tools. When we design apps we love to focus on speed and productivity.

  • Contextual

    User interfaces live within an ecosystem of platforms that have their own set of conventions. When designing for any operating system, one should fully consider the platform and its guidelines.

  • Simple

    Everything should be as simple as possible, but not simpler.

  • Beautifully crafted

    Great design is the result of thousands of micro-decisions. Through our experience, we handcraft every detail of your product to perfection.
