Good Works

Good Design
for Good Reason

Every project is an opportunity. We seek out partners who share our fire and fervor for social progress. But why just talk about it when we can be about it?

From Camp Firebelly and Reason to Give to Typeforce and Firebelly University, we’ve been all about serving the greater good since day one. Our longest running program, the Grant for Good, is an annual award that provides one nonprofit a year’s worth of our services for free. It’s rad! The call for applications goes out every Fall.

Design for Equity + Inclusion

As a community-centered design studio, we are committed to diversity and inclusion, with the goal of creating a more equitable, just world. We understand diversity — across age, gender, race, religion, citizenship status, ability, sexual orientation, education, class and culture — builds perspective and empathy, which are critical to responsible design.

We create brave spaces where all voices can be heard, biases challenged and solutions arrived at together.

We strive to live our values in all that we do, encouraging honesty, collaboration, generosity, gratitude, courage, and a commitment to doing the work. We pursue positive outcomes for and stronger relationships among our employees, partners and the communities we serve.

This work is unending. We remain steadfast in our dedication to use our collective power and platforms to dismantle inequity, promote diversity and inclusion, and together, design a better world.
