We design and build tools to support movement builders and social justice groups, and work to uphold their principles and values.
What we do can be summed up as
- Understanding problems, exploring solutions
- Design research and experimentation
- Design facilitation
- Building tools and assets
- Visual design
- UX design
- Web design
We have a pretty opinionated approach to the tools and services we use, taking into account accessibility, consent, affordabiility and equitability.
