1. To work together, especially in a joint intellectual effort
2. Something created by working jointly with another or others
At the core of our process is a desire to work with clients and experts to determine goals, challenge briefs and ultimately provide the best possible outcome within the means provided. We believe this is best achieved through collaboration, both with colleagues and other professions. For us, collaboration is working with each other to complete a task and to achieve shared goals. This transcends mere co-operative ventures of convenience, and involves a deep, collective determination to reach an identical objective, an endeavour that is creative in nature by sharing knowledge, learning and building consensus.
Our process is hands-on. We strive to use available media to test, expand knowledge and develop ideas. We believe in deeply exploring every site, inside and outside of its boundaries. We sketch both broadly and in detail, build models at all stages and prototype as often as required. Design should never be one dimensional, but rather employ multiple resources through rigorous testing until the pursuit of perfection is exhausted.
