WHO WE ARE

WE’RE A CREATIVE AGENCY WITH A STRONG STRATEGIC FOCUS, BUT WE’RE NOT AFRAID TO CALL OURSELVES ARTISTS.

We build better. We are purposeful about purpose. We design desire. We apply our creative, problem-solving skillset to the most complex brand and community challenges. And with our best clients, we exchange ideas — they challenge us, we inspire them. Check it out. You know you want to.

We strive to be clear about whom we are in order to attract our soul brothers and sisters. Good design compels connections. Good design builds tribes.

We believe a picture might be worth a thousand and one words

Through design, marketing/communications strategies and solutions, local event-based activities and art installations via public art commission opportunities — we strive for the outcome of creating deeper connections. We use our unique skill set to create effective solutions for national, regional and especially local clients. We have a specific desire to enhance the livability of cities, and other well-established entities, through design thinking, problem-solving and creative placemaking.

CREATIVE THINKING

If you are looking for the next big idea or a simple fresh perspective, let us apply a creative lens to your rose-colored glasses. Yes, we believe in optimism, but we also realize there is a practicality that needs to allow for a smart execution. We shy away from projects that are thick with analysis but end up with zero implementation.

DESIGN

We don’t compare ourselves to the stripmall design firms locally, or even the boutique studios in the Seattle market (even though some of them do incredible work). We challenge ourselves to be westcoast worthy — a notoriety that comes from the attention to startlingly great design that is not self-indulgent but serves the expected outcome.

STRATEGY

We already said it, but we never create plans, strategies, or reports that are not grounded in action. Please don’t ask us to map out long-term trajectories that will be sequestered into some filing cabinet by well-meaning admin assistants in eight-to-twelve months. If you want vibrant, beyond-the-horizon thinking to steer your rudder, let’s talk.

IMPLEMENTATION

Here is where the ship turns. A small twist of the wrist can turn a massive cargo vessel by a deft captain. Let us help you change trajectories so the sun is warming your face, instead of your back.

WHAT WE DO

WORKING WITH US

Our best ideas do not come under fluorescent lights or through the tips of dry-erase markers. We find our best ideas in conversation over a beer or a hot cup of tea — we have a preference for well-crafted coffee. Our goal is to create something new each time, not just replicate the last project and wrap it in a nice shiny bow for you.
