Studio

We are a multi-disciplinary studio exploring divergent modes, methods and mediums. 

 
 

storytelling

Challenging our current narratives, remembering where the old ones are buried, exploring ones that might lend us the imagination necessary to venture beyond our existing reality. 

"Maybe what we need now is the feral howl and transformative power of poetry"

— Arundahti Roy


consulting

Let's put our heads together. Then connect the dots. Then let's erase the dots. What do the lines tell us about where energy is spent and what we take for 'the work'? Let's start over. Again. 

"Designers must move from designing things to designing systems."

— Paul Saffo

 


design

Good design might tell us we shouldn't list Design as a thing. We say design is on the rise, but really we come to recognize how much we've all let it be a servant to some very bad masters.  

"Designers must move from designing things to designing systems."

— Paul Saffo


strategy

What we usually think of as strategy is typically myopic, static, and it smells. Smells like careers, competition and exploitation. We'd like to explore something that's interdependent, fluid and fun.  

"Be a thermostat... a thermostat shapes the climate of opinion; a thermometer just reflects it."

— Cornel West


the arts

Because without which, our species’ thought experiment seems doomed to reenact the calculated steps of musical chairs within an echo chamber. What does that even mean? Exactly.

Manifesto

We are in the middle of a crisis. In it's essence, it's a crossroads.
