3 years ago I left CBS Interactive to start an interactive studio. A place where I could use both my skills as a designer and developer to make great work and give something meaningful back to the universe.

In the three years since, we’ve been able to help non-profits, start ups, and other companies establish a strong digital core to help their businesses run more efficiently; design apps, websites, and internal tools to help them engage with their audience; and also build analytics to help them make informed decisions in the future. We also shot a couple of music videos for fun.

We’ve been able to do great work and exist against the odds. We’re a small design and tech company run by people of color — we are an anomaly and we know it so we are proud that we’ve been able to continue work in this space for this long.

But more importantly we’ve been able to do this while supporting our communities. In a time where other more established design and tech companies are having trouble hiring women, Blacks, and Latinos, we’ve been able to keep a small diverse team with all the projects we’ve worked on. We believe diversity brings different perspectives which in turn makes for better products. That’s been our ethos from the very beginning. And it’s why we’ve been able to last in a space that says we shouldn’t be here.

If you’re in need of design services, want to geek out over the latest dev framework, or have questions about the meaning of life, please don’t hesitate to reach out to us. We’d love to hear from you.
