About

Who We Are

Collectively is a product design studio that helps mission-driven entrepreneurs build technology that matters.

Through strategy, design, and development, we work with entrepreneurs, changemakers, and institutions to create technology that empowers people to overcome their biggest challenges.

 

We’re a nimble team of mission-driven, passionate technologists.

Being small means we can constantly push creative boundaries and work in close collaboration with our partners. Great design doesn't happen in a bubble; it happens when people of different people with different ways of seeing the world trade ideas and collaborate.

While our job titles might be ‘designer’ or ‘developer’, we’re all part of the same team reaching for a common goal.

We’re in it for the long haul.

We believe that we go far when we go together. When we have a common mission, we’re not just ‘clients’ and ‘consultants’; we’re all part of the same team.

That’s why we build lasting, mission-driven partnerships with everyone we work with. It’s the only way we can truly create sustainable social impact.

We put people first.

We believe technology shouldn’t be built for technology’s sake. It’s not meant just to look nice. It’s meant to work to provide real, lasting value for the people using it, and we strive to work with people whose businesses and organizations are a force for good.

We might be technologists, but we're also real human beings. We won't talk to you like a computer; we'll make sure you understand everything we're doing and why it's important we do it.
