Values

Simplicity

We strive for simplicity in all things: our product, our marketing, our processes, our business model, and our office space. It’s easy to layer on complexity, but achieving simplicity requires ruthless editing. The result is solutions that are beautiful in their efficiency and clarity, easier to understand wholly, easier to translate to different situations and scales, and easier to change later.

We encourage working hard to get to a simple solution, even if one doesn’t come to fruition.
We encourage projects that are well scoped.
We encourage those who prioritize simplicity for our customers above our own.
We discourage complicated solutions in product, design, and process.
We discourage artificial simplicity: things that appear simple but aren’t well-thought-out or holistically simple.
