We make useful tools.
We build digital solutions and craft powerful messages. We’re passionate about design, copy, development, quality assurance, and getting things done (i.e., project management). We’ve created AppKits, a proprietary application management engine, to help ensure our solutions perform at the highest level.
Rooted in design:
We make elegant tools.
We’ve spent most of our history as a respected Twin Cities design firm. We trace our beginnings to the late Mad Men era, when phones were bolted to a wall. The technology has changed but the need to be very very smart hasn’t. Ultimately, design is a way of thinking: a way of looking at a problem through the lens of audience and objective, message and tone, metaphor and image. We transform ideas into tools. We produce ideas which help you realize your particular vision.
Energized by digital:
We make powerful tools.
Like the rest of the planet, we’ve realized that mobile devices can deliver messages, impart information, and prompt interactions. But digital also gives us insights into our client’s processes and audiences. And it’s these insights which separate the tools from the gadgets. To deliver those tools, we develop native applications for iOS, Android, and Windows platforms and responsive web sites. We’re comfortable working with a wide range of industry standard languages and resources.
