What’s on your mind?

Our clients have a few things in common: they’re passionate about their work, they’re ready to do something different, and at one point they decided we were the right team to help them get there.

Our studio in Berkeley was once the national headquarters of the Black Panther Party. We’ve previously worked out of a former pipe organ factory, a former punch clock factory, and a former auto repair shop. We love Berkeley’s many quirky small businesses. Some of our favorites are below:

Berkeley Bowl

This grocery store is a Berkeley institution. We couldn’t live without it. We wouldn’t. berkeleybowl.com


Known for their sourdough pizza, they also make great sandwiches, bagels, and pastry. oaklandstylepizza.com

Cole Coffee

Ok, it’s in Oakland by about 100 feet but Cole has good strong coffee with friendly staff and a deep roster of regulars who might as well live there. colecoffee.com

Summer Kitchen

Sandwiches, salad, pizza, and a drool-inducing dessert counter make Summer Kitchen one of our favorite College Ave lunch spots. summerkitchenbakeshop.com

Vik’s Chaat

An Indian restaurant like no other, with a grocery attached. We like the rotating daily vegetarian plate with all the fixings. vikschaat.com


This Thai place is practically an extension of our office. Kao Soi and Larb Gai ftw. anchaleethai.com

900 Grayson

Popular lunch spot with a great patio and the best fried chicken sandwich in the East Bay. 900grayson.com

Sports Basement

A Bay Area sporting goods chain that makes REI look like a little bodega. The Berkeley location used to be a skating rink called Iceland. sportsbasement.com

Dream Fluff

Fresh donuts, cheap coffee, no fuss. Show up later in the day and you might find some extra fried goodness in your bag. dreamfluffdonuts.com
