Design with, not for

Our Impact Practices deeply consider the ethical use of data and meet our highest standards of responsible and thoughtful design. We co-create projects with our local partners and in the service of underserved, marginalized, and vulnerable communities. Our projects accelerate missions and transform hundreds of thousands of lives through the organizations we serve.
