We are a full-service design and consulting agency based in Los Angeles, CA. We use human-centered design to connect, engage and inspire people around your identity, cause or community. We design your story to create small conversion moments--those simple points of resonance with fellow humans--that build over time into something worthwhile.
Our portfolio pages should be ready soon. In the meantime, contact us to see specific examples of our work.
If you're the kind of company or organization looking to innovate, spark human connection, impact the world for good and create a better story we can all be a part of, then you're our kind of folks.
We take a holistic, human-centered design approach to every problem or opportunity that comes our way. We deliver beautiful brand experiences and innovative solutions across a wide array of media, and build brand value and trust by ensuring cohesive visual language, reinforcing it through every detail of our work.
Steve’s dad owns the company.
When Steve isn't demanding his latte be made at exactly 147 degrees, or posting “Family Circus” cartoons around the office, he's offering up great design ideas that usually involve “more cats.” While at college, Steve dabbled in many disciplines, ultimately crafting his own double major of Global Alchemy and Ceramics. (Unfortunately, Steve did not graduate, citing "irreconcilable differences" with his RA.) After traveling the world for four months ("Prague was cool, but I really found myself in Tampa,") Steve became a valuable member of the Animal Volcano Team. From raising office morale with his improvised renditions of "Call Me Maybe" to plenty of font suggestions ("That one in 'Avatar,'" is a frequent refrain), Steve is learning the business quickly and we're thrilled that his dad made him a project manager. No, really. We are.
