- Converse with you about your project.
- Dive Deep Into Research.
- Make lots of “pour-over” coffee (in a beautiful Danish pot).
Chat some more. With You. With Each Other.
With The Cat Down The Road.
Retreat into the box for a few weeks or more. Set Pomodoro* Alarms to remember to stretch, and come up for air.
Test. Show you the stuff.
…AND then we Launch! Or more formally:
Listen | DISCUSS | Design | DEVELOP | Launch
THINGS | Digital And Material
Interested in the tech angle? For websites, we use WordPress and the Genesis Framework. 99% of the time we use premium paid-plugins (such as Gravity Forms), this helps ensure the longevity of the sites we develop, and provide more security as developers who charge for their plug-ins tend to be more motivated to keep them up to date.
We’ve also created a few apps, several identities and other interactive works. Currently we are working on doing the user interface for a project experimenting with webRTC.
*Pomodoro – You’ve heard of the 80/20 rule? 80% of your business comes from 20% of your clients. You only wear 20% of what’s in your closet?
The Pomodoro Technique is a time management method developed by Francesco Cirillo in the late 1980s. We set alarms on our iPhones for 20-25 minutes, turn off everything and just work uninterrupted for that time period. When the buzzer goes, you set another alarm for 5 minutes or so, and then you can do whatever you like in that interval.
Downward dogs, check instagram, eat tangerines…. you name it.
Sometimes we tinker with the intervals: 27/8; 33/3 (threes are lovely numbers); 29/6 and so on. Sometimes it works and the focus on only the work at hand produces tremendous results in a short window of time, and with the reward of another Insta hit, why wouldn’t it? Sometimes, a technical glitch occurs and 3 hours go by before a nary a stretch happens and then an appointment must be made with some kind of magician to re-calibrate the bones and tendons …
Try it. It might just provide you the focus you need to run a marathon.
