What people wear takes them places, and we follow along. We get to know them and their unique challenges so we can make each day better. Because, without exception, setbacks lead to solutions, to jolts of confidence that help people thrive. For us, that means questioning what we think we know, always. Pushing our minimum viable products to exceed expectations. Recognizing that even our best design won’t replace people, but support them. After all, iteration is the whole point. Styles change. People change. And so do we.
