DIGITAL DESIGN

High performing digital design is complex and specialized. Empathy, active listening, collaboration, respect, optimism and the willingness to apply and adapt many layers of requirements make for the most effective solution.

DEVELOPMENT

Client-side, server-side, widgets, plug-ins, scripts and styles — thousands of lines of code bring your vision to life. For you, the technology must be seamless and reliable. For us, it is ubiquitous and always at the ready.

AGILE MOVEMENT

Bringing it all together, our work has a cadence — a rhythm and flow that guides the work we do, when we do it and how we create-to-innovate efficiently and effectively. With increased checkpoints to make informed decisions, even pivots, when necessary — Agile affords us repeatable success with a clear path (an iterative, cyclical process) and precise commitments to follow.

DESIGN THINKING

Sometimes both the problem and the solution are unknown. Often times, the solution is the first to be defined without thoroughly understanding what truly needs to be solved. Design thinking is collaborative, exploratory, creative and makes ideas tangible.

STRATEGIC COMMUNICATIONS

Today, your options to communicate seem limitless. Yet, no single message can be out of sync. When attention is at a premium, every point of contact is critical and “character counts.” Strategic communications is an integrated, cross-channel approach to help build the volume and reach of your “echo.”

USER RESEARCH

Understanding the true nature of those you connect with is essential at a very specific level. Knowing and prioritizing what’s important — the wants, needs, motivations and behaviors of your intended audience helps you make an informed-decision and fosters the opportunity for greater innovation.

Heather Dority
Heather Dority
CEO | Director of Strategic Services

Understanding what moves the heart and mind, especially in the “Always On” digital age, is what fuels me. Some may say it’s the coffee, but really the drive to fully explore and create positive experiences just runs through my veins. I see ideas and answers in unrelated things. Not ashamed to say, I write in hashtags. #sorrynotsorry

Working with and keeping up with technology is like a competitive sport to me. The game is always changing. New tech always has me stepping up my game. I love the challenge — the mental workout — to make it all click! I love the sense of achievement, knowing how hard I played the game.
