We're a community of storytellers and makers, actively working to drive open government through research, design and civic technology.


WhY we do what we do

Governments and many other organisations find it hard to tell their own stories and make engaging audience focussed information services that makes a difference or an impact.

We are here to help, because we believe that we (the public) should be able to participate and make informed decisions about matters that affect us and our communities, and that people (including in governments) should be able to access to information in ways they can easily understand and share with others.

WhY civic technology?

'Civic tech' enables engagement and participation, builds a bridge between the people and government, enhances citizen involvement in decision making, and the improvement of government service delivery and communications.,

What we do

We design data narratives and make meaningful content. We apply our storytelling and audience engagement expertise to many kinds of products, services and projects. We specialise in interpreting data and transforming complex processes into simple and useful visualisations.

Make useful software tools. We design and make our own products, services and digital storytelling tools - with a focus on open government, data stories and improving access to information. 

Participatory Design. We can collaborate with you to research, scope projects, develop strategies and participatory design approaches, build an awesome team, engage with audiences, wrangle and produce content, and create compelling visual communications and services.

We are a company of collaborators. We are not an agency or consultants. We are a for profit social enterprise. Therefore we only work on projects that are useful and have a social purpose. We get stuff done using participatory design methods. 

We love to share our knowledge and happy to help you design content, services or workshops to suit your needs. 

If you are interested in working with us, we'd love to hear for you!
