Diversity, Equity & Inclusion

Flourishing with difference and determination

Since our beginning in 2003, we’ve sought to be a more human company. We use the internet to enrich lives through our work and offer a place of belonging for people who want to cultivate their craft deeply and substantially. We know great work comes from great people living their lives to the fullest.

As an organization, we champion human rights and believe that diversity, equity, and inclusion are fundamental to our vision of an open, resilient, and optimistic world. We know that to pursue our vision truly, we must embody it through the experiences of our team and clients and our collective contribution to society. 

Informed by these principles, our DEI mission is to flourish with difference and determination. We’re constantly shaping our organization to represent our world, embrace continuous learning, and give everyone what they need to contribute. We believe doing so fosters the multiplicity of skills, perspectives, and experiences required to deliver our craft, engage for impact and operate with soul. 


As employers and creators, we recognize that we play an important role in correcting broader systems of inequalities. To serve our mission and vision, we’re committed to reimagining every aspect of our business through the lens of diversity, equity, and inclusion.

  • Delivering our craft: We co-design brands and products to benefit everyone. We ground our strategic method in inclusive design and accessibility practices.
  • Engaging for impact: We enrich society through the success of the company we keep. We work with clients who aspire to create the world we want to live in.
  • Operating with soul: We cultivate a collective experience of belonging and shared values. We believe in giving people what they need to thrive individually and as a community.

To support our journey, we work closely with a DEI partner to help guide us and have a DEI committee with members from our Paris and New York studios. Together with our leadership team, this group develops and advances a roadmap of priorities directly connected to our core business objectives.
