Company Mantra: “We don’t just make apps, we create Happiness!”

Does your agency have a cool origin story?

Our idea was to make clients happy. Seems crazy, right? But you’d be surprised at how many companies out there are only interested in getting a project, building the bare minimum, and washing their hands of the whole ordeal. The truth is that sometimes we love the apps we build more than the clients do, and that’s OK with us. We make apps with beautiful brands, great interfaces, and a solid hook that makes consumers loyal. That’s pretty rocksauce, if you ask us.

What does #agencylife mean to you?

A good job isn’t good enough. If our work doesn’t bring happiness we are not satisfied.

“Everyone who runs a company decides to do things differently, it’s not enough to want to make a difference; it’s the execution that matters.”

– Q Manning, CEO & Co-Founder
