We are a small, diverse team of experienced professionals with a strong belief in the power of design. We work as one Shift. – no silos, no disconnect between thinkers and doers, no separation between pitch-team and working-team. We value ideas and impact over convention or process, and believe no detail is too small to obsess over.
