How We Work

Why should we care? What’s the point? That’s where we start. Questions and answers like footholds out of the well. What you do, how you do it, and why—this is the story we help you tell. The first steps aren’t research or analysis or choosing a medium (digital, experiential, etc.). They’re dialogue. Here’s a flavor of our questioning process:

Then, we execute: build a website, plan an experience, flyer a city, write a song, make a video. The best solutions are usually 360-degree, we’ve found. They’ve got a little of everything in them.

 

You want to know, but do we do mobile apps? do we do tactile design for storefronts? Yeah, we do. But where’s your menu of services? We say, you already know the hammer for this nail? a social campaign (say) is the best solution?

 

If that’s the case, you’re getting us involved too late. Pass.

 

But if you’ve got an interesting problem, and you’re open to questions and answers, and you want to be bold—hell, let’s dance, partner, and see where the night takes us.

 

Here are a few of our favorite nights:

Highlighted Projects


Revolver Launch Party

No one knew who Revolver was and we were able to get more than 700 people off their couches and come to their launch party. Well-executed publicity and social media, arresting print design, and huge Revolver banners. Also, two words: hipster boxing. Read more about the project here.

Cliche Storefront

Cliche

Cliche wanted a new brand language for their winter reboot, a visual voice that felt as fresh and as unique as they are. They came to us to build them a language that was fresh and minimal, and smelled a little ‘heritage.’ Read about what we did for them here.

Ethan Rutherford

Back when we first started talking to Ethan, he wasn’t the (mildly) famous author he is now. He just needed a site. He sent us a copy of his new book, The Peripatetic Coffin, and said he had a thing for Moby Dick. What came out of our talks is simple and beautiful and lovely. Check it out here.
