What is your team mission?
noko is driven by…
Ideologically: putting an emphasis on language and culture as integral parts of design that are (too!) often overlooked.
Practically: working with people and projects that contribute to #1.
What problem are you solving?
The design & tech industry is mostly completely ignorant of its impact on language and culture, and has been for too long. noko is a response to this.
noko is Norwegian and literally means something. It's the smallest piece of thought you can take, and use to build something. Piece by piece, noko puts these together with a focus on language and culture.
