HOW WE WORK

We put users at the center, from the beginning.

We believe that a solution is out there and that by keeping focused on the people we’re designing for and asking the right questions, we’ll get there together.

 

We dream up lots of ideas, some that work and some that don’t. We make our ideas tangible so that we can test them, and then we refine them.

 

In the end, our approach amounts to wild creativity, to ceaseless push to innovate, and a confidence that leads us to solutions we’d never dreamed of when we started.

OUR VALUES

LEARN MORE ABOUT US

WHY INNOVATION IS IMPORTANT

 

Using our unique design-centered approach, we are dedicated to improving the capacity of City Hall.

WHO WE ARE

 

A team of local, regional and national talent with a unique and comprehensive skill set to advance the City’s innovation projects.

USERS ARE AT THE CORE

 

POSSIBILITY IS EVERYWHERE

 

COLLABORATION AND OPEN SOURCE MOVES US ALL FORWARD

 

Understanding the problem and designing the right solutions requires working together. We must carefully select stakeholders (owners, sponsors, and users). Only then is innovation possible. We document our work, results, processes, and best practices. We work to ensure our solutions are accessible and replicable.

IT BEGINS INTERNALLY

 

MAINTAIN SIMPLICITY

 

FAIL FAST TO SUCCEED FAST
