A Few Samples of our Past Work

Over the years we’ve been given the opportunity to work on quite a diverse array of projects; ranging from life-saving medical devices, to children’s educational toys. Every product has offered its own unique set of challenges and once conquered, left us with a profound sense of pride. Though we can’t show them all publicly, the collection of the projects showcased below should give you a good sense of our design style, and a reflection of the elegant-simplicity that we try to imbue into every design that passes through our doors. Clicking on any product will take you to a dedicated page that outlines our role in the design process and also offers up additional imagery and animations/videos (when applicable).
