Words we actually swear by.
Our five core values are grounded in one purpose statement: We foster an environment where creativity thrives and benefits others. Together, these guiding tenets place a maniacal focus on personal growth: a singular goal that drives everything we do. Whether we’re inventing new technologies or discovering a new way to look at something old, we constantly push ourselves to learn, redefining the very curve others strive to remain ahead of.
Ten-minute talks by us, inspired by TED.
Picture this. It’s our weekly Alignment meeting, which is when we all get in a room together to, well, align. You might call it a staff meeting. Anyway. We kick off every week with a ten-minute presentation by one of us. Sometimes we laugh, sometimes we cry and sometimes beer shoots out of our noses. No matter what, we always learn a thing or two.
Our annual retreat, holiday party, growthfest and reset button — all in one.
Once a year we all grow away together. That’s right, we pack our overnight bags and head out into the great unknown to learn, share and celebrate — just the 42 of us. We raise our pencils and notebooks to the year behind us, the year ahead and, most importantly, to the good stories and rush of inspiration we bring back home.
Once a year, we donate our services to local non-profits. All night. For free.
Much like the individuals and families they serve, non-profits each have their own needs. Every year, we pour our hearts and hard work into meeting those needs: branding, brochures, websites, and yep — even videos — for organizations who want to better communicate their mission so that they can carry it out in the world. Helping them is some of the most important work we’ll ever do and it always comes together in the shortest 24 hours of our lives (until next year, of course).
We're privileged to have served over 50 non-profits in the past nine years. Click here to see some of our work and learn more about CreateAthon.
Putting our big dreams on paper.
Our collective list of “stuff we want to learn” is endless. That’s why, every quarter, we take a step back and re-focus. We each write down our professional and personal goals, then ask each other the hard questions about how last quarter went. We usually discuss as many failures as we do triumphs because, well, we’re human. If there's one thing we know for sure, it’s that we’re always ready for more. And that’s pretty rad.
