We are a proudly independent studio. Even though we’re not there yet, we’d love to be seen in the same set as Merge Records, Stones Throw, Graywolf Press, Oscilloscope Labs, Cinereach — and folks like them. Platforms for doing creative work, with integrity.
The nature of our creative enterprise is one of craft, collaboration, and clients. We work in service of the people and companies that hire us — to make digital things that serve their businesses.
We are always looking for like-minded creative makers — in fine arts, in music, in film, in storytelling, in journalism, in food, in publishing — where we can bring our digital and tech talents to help them create platforms for creativity.
We love working with other truly independent companies, particularly those who aren’t sustaining themselves with secret money. Not that we’re against it. We just know what it takes to build a bootstrapped business without it.
So we dedicate some of our work to try and unlock creative livelihoods. We realize that this can be fraught when it comes to consumer tech, where the act of creation and the act of destruction often go hand in hand.
We’ve had the honor of collaborating with some great companies since 2012, helping both bootstrapped and venture-backed companies try to create sustainable creative businesses.
