As a studio, we are really just a group of humans working toward a common vision.

“We are united by our passion for great user experiences, beautiful design and creative technologies.”

In this pursuit, we’ve managed to agree on five values that we think are extra important. We try to keep these in mind through everything we do — in the ways we work, the ways we make and the ways we communicate with each other, clients or anyone we stumble upon.

Here it goes:

Put people first

At work, we strive to cultivate an environment where people have the best opportunity to be healthy, perform well and do awesome work. We put people over profits and people over processes.

We believe everyone is equal, no matter their background, race, role or gender.

Value quality

We deliver good results because we care about our clients success and details ­in design, code & process. We push ourselves until we feel proud in our hearts about our projects — and our clients are happy.

Make it playful

At work, we also strive to keep it playful. We spend a big chunk of our time here. This is why we have fun, make cool things and never take ourselves too seriously.

Be honest

Tell the truth. Give your feedback straight. It makes things better.

Be nice, though.

Be open

Be unafraid to share useful learnings, cool work or fun hacks with the community.


These are the values that form the foundation of our studio. They underlie everything we do, keeping our focus human-centric in the best possible way.
