Both design culture and start-up culture were born in Silicon Valley.
And so were we.
So to bring these disciplines under one roof, all we had to do was embrace our roots. The combo resulted in a unique offering: design thinking with a lean, start-up mentality. It’s a more modern, efficient way of thinking about strategy and getting things done.
A new set of tools.
Develop strategic frameworks with the flexibility to adjust on the go – while exploring creative execution in parallel.
Build quick models, allowing us to test hypotheses, evaluate ideas, and make better decisions through iterations.
Work side-by-side with our clients to explore possibilities, develop and evaluate ideas, and solve challenges together.
Sometimes to solve a problem, you’ve got to Swarm it.
We bring our strategists, creatives, and other contributors together to collaborate with our clients across their organization. We do this early on to attack a problem from as many angles as possible, shrink timelines, and get to solutions that we might never find if went down a single, linear path.
It’s the way we get to better answers, faster. It’s our proven method for creating energy, focus, and momentum. And it keeps ideas in a liquid state, allowing them to stay malleable and movable, and giving people the freedom to create together instead of in isolation.
It’s also a scalable, adaptable, flexible method: we can Swarm a problem in a two-hour sprint or a five-day marathon. But it always takes the confidence and openness of everyone finding our way to the answers together. And it always ends up answering questions no one ever expected going in.
