Apps and other creations

We help companies harness the potential of the web. We have worked with the BBC, the Science Museum, the Guardian and social enterprises, winning awards from Yahoo, BBC, Sony, Hewlett-Packard and UnLtd.

A case study, Dharmafly’s series of apps for BBC World Service.

Alongside our public-facing products for clients, we create open source software and initiate community activities and workshops.
