We're a boutique graphic facilitation and design firm focused on framing conversations, structuring collaboration, identifying patterns, surfacing coherence, experimenting at the edges—in service of social understanding.
We believe that helping people see helps them reflect, increases consciousness, and informs thoughtful decision-making. In the effort to shepherd our globe to a healthier and more sustainable place, every gesture matters. Working with you, we surface information and patterns to shape processes of change.
By understanding context, building long-lasting client relationships, and bringing a high level of care to our work, we aspire to seed the soil of global change, one mark at a time.
