How and What

We can chat more about how we go about our work and the type of work we do, but for now here’s a very high level summary of each.

The Designer’s Toolbelt

Our toolbelt is constantly evolving as we find new and better ways to go about our work. Here is what we tend to use today.

Project Types

We’ve made our name by creating mobile apps. Over time, we’ve expanded our offerings to help meet the needs of our clients and their users. Today we find ourselves designing and building mobile and web apps, exploring new technologies and hardware, and helping our clients through product design sprints and shorter prototyping projects.

Apply to be a part of a rapidly growing, innovative design team.

We’re currently hiring experienced user interface and user experience designers. All ridiculously talented, highly productive, results-oriented, team-loving, fun, smart, happy designers encouraged to apply.

Our project teams are small, collaborative, and cross-functional. As a designer on one of these teams, you are critical to ensuring the work we deliver meets the needs and expectations of both users and the business. You’ll lead the design of apps as they progress through early ideation, the stages of experience and visual design, and on through development. You’ll be the shining star that ensures every deliverable we ship supports our belief in design as a means for driving our client’s success.

At this time we are only looking for candidates that can join us on-site at our office in Detroit, Michigan.
