Our Values - Love Our Customers

Love Our Customers

Put yourself in the shoes of the customers, figure out what they want, then work backwards.  Never sell them something they don’t need.

Simplify Complexity

Strive for simplicity in every aspect of the business—in our design, processes, and language.  Simplicity results in clarity and focus.
Our Values - Learn & Be Curious

Learn & Be Curious

We should never be done with learning.  Always seek to improve yourself.  Be curious about new possibilities and act to explore them.

Take Ownership

Take ownership of outcomes and never say “that’s not my job.”  Act on behalf of the entire company and see things through.

Passion Required

Passion is at the heart of our company. We love what we do, are always looking to improve, and try to have fun along the way.

Balance Craft & Speed

While we’re craftsmen art heart, we understand speed matters in business and are constantly working to strike balance between the two.
