It's important to stand for something.

Businesses in the 21st Century have the opportunity to stand for more than the bottom line. These are a few beliefs we operate our studio by. Our (6) ideals for the (21)st Century.

1.

Practice confident humility

This drives genuine collaboration. It empowers us to speak with conviction and listen with humility.

3.

Sweat the details

Sweating the details is not just about design.  It is about listening, understanding, and executing with precision.   As Charles Eames said, "The details are not the details, they make the design".

5.

Prioritize balance

Nothing in excess.  A well-balanced life fuels creativity and happiness, and a well-balanced design can do the same.

2.

Do less

Nothing without purpose. Eliminate the unnecessary so that the necessary can speak loudly and clearly.

4.

Tread lightly

When it comes to sustainability the best design is no design at all.  When we work with our clients to bring something new into the world, we work hard to ensure it treads lightly. 

6.

Many over one

Diversity adds value.  Giving voice to diverse perspectives and backgrounds delivers the richest design solutions.
