Extended Team

Various Roles
Programers, artists, designers, translators, educators, trainer and many more people join our team to execute our projects. We also leverage our client's human resources to ensure knowledge transfer and capacity development.

Human-experience design guides our approach.

We are constantly thinking about how people come together to share, learn, collaborate and enjoy learning and work as a meaningful and important part of life.

Our goal in creating any program or piece of content is to create and deliver engaging learning experiences that reflect how people actually want to learn, work and play.

“We are at a crossroads where human programs are intersecting with computer/machine programs. It is essential we pay as much attention to programing ourselves and our societies as we do to advancing technology.”

Co-Founder & Creative Director
