About our work culture
We love perfectionism, results, productivity, focus and efficiency – achieved through an approach of "working smarter not harder", a love of what we do, and taking great care of each other and our community.
We’re welcoming, energetic, compassionate, motivated, supportive, and love to have fun with the things we do.
We’re passionate about design and the difference it can make in the world.
We have no set hours, no uniforms to wear and no fixed location of work – we believe that creativity combined with skills and motivation are the keys to success rather than meaningless conformity.
Pictures from team trips
The team meets regularly in exotic locations around the world; these are some photos from our last team meet up on the tiny Thai island, Koh Ngai, and in Dubai. We have more awesome locations planned for future meetings. Not having an office doesn’t mean that we don’t have a strong team ethic – quite the reverse, it means we have a team that is dedicated to working together, everywhere and all the time.
