Drawing Backwards: A Peek at our Process

From small, straightforward projects to complex ones that require in-depth planning, every engagement follows our slingshot-inspired process. While it may be tempting to go full steam ahead from the beginning, our team will first draw backwards to discover the true challenge or task at hand. Then, we use divergent, emergent and convergent thinking to innovate and design a solution that will achieve real results. Our agile approach to stay nimble and quickly expand or contract the process based on your needs sets us apart. We seamlessly integrate with your development, marketing and business teams and processes.
