Introduce us to your team
We're a small, remote-first design studio started by Todd Wilson & János Spindler. We met in 2018 working as in-house designers on the brand team of a technology startup. Our creative partnership is focused on creating work in the areas of brand strategy, identity design & creative direction.
What values does your team share?
To ensure that we have a common, shared understanding of how we behave, we've created a set of three studio principles.
01 — Prioritise Balance
Our team’s wellbeing always takes priority.
02 — Uphold Quality
We’re here to make great design with impact.
03 — Foster Relationships
Great work happens when great people come together.
What are your team's proudest accomplishments?
We partner with innovative, values-based companies across industries such as technology, healthcare, mobility & housing to bring their brands and ideas to life.
How does your team promote personal well-being?
We take what we do very serious but never at the cost of our teams well-being. To avoid long periods of exhaustion, we generally don't agree to take on projects with super tight timelines and are looking for partners that understand this approach. Furthermore, the studio operates on a 4 day work week.
What design tools do you use day to day?
95% of our work takes place in these four apps. Figma is our go-to design tool for its collaboration features and ability to iterate fast on concepts, prototype ideas and so on. Everything else we do at the studio runs on Notion - it's our digital HQ for the business. We're big supporters of async communication so we use Loom very frequently to share client updates, presentations or just snippets from our lives in the home office. Slack is used for all other communication - we also find ourselves using it as bookmarking tool more and more.
What does a typical day in the life of your team look like?
When not working on projects we both enjoy a good long walk to give the eyes some rest and catch up on podcasts. Otherwise our down time is often spend with everything from collecting visual references on are.na, playlist curation, culinary explorations to experimenting with NFTs.
