From Complicated to Simple
We partner with big brands and small organizations to solve problems simply and quickly. Our biggest strength is helping you discover your truth and tell that story. How do we get there? We analyze businesses and brands from all angles – competitive, cultural, organizational, product and distribution. We conduct research. We listen. We learn. We study, crunch and distill until we find simple, creative solutions to complicated business problems.
Cracking Your Code
We’re a full-service agency with a wide range of expertise including: creative, design, research, strategy, identity development & naming, media planning & buying, digital & social media. But in everything we do, we’re always looking for different ways to crack your code. Not the same answer for every problem, the right answer to your problem.
We like to build things. As a small, nimble agency, we do a lot of our own production in house. We tend to jump right in and start asking questions that lead to answers and creative executions. Our production capabilities include film, editing, photography, music, and package design among other things.
4 is the New 5
We wondered what would happen if people had more time to spend with their friends and families. So we experimented with a four-day work week. Turns out we’re more creative, more productive and generally happier human beings when given the opportunity for a more balanced life. And like we always say, ‘If it’s good enough for Norway, it’s good enough for us.’
All Things Digital
A large portion of the work we do is digital. We provide development and technology expertise to companies ranging from the coffee shop down the street to Silicon Valley startups and multinational corporations that get millions of web visitors per month. We design websites, create digital campaigns, write code, build apps, design information architecture and content management systems, implement e-commerce solutions and provide analytics. For some clients, we are the technology department. For others, we augment their IT and development teams. For everyone, we’re a trusted partner.
We believe this place is only as great as the people who work here. So we created an Employee Stock Ownership Plan to give everyone an ownership stake. Now no one works for The Man. Unless you’re a man. Then you still do.
