We are children of the Middle West and citizens of the cosmos, unafraid of the unexplored and undeterred by the unprecedented. We can build anything and devise everything. We are fluent in invention, philosophy and hard work.

elisabeth hass

Elisabeth has a tendency to look for beauty and meaning in just about everything. Upon discovering the work of Merleau-Ponty and Kant she dedicated herself to aesthetics. Stints at leading art organizations like The Whitney Museum balanced the theory and art history she studied at The New School. Today she adapts her background in writing, philosophy and curation to create brands, connect communities and infuse projects with meaning. She spends her days ideating, finessing the details and learning. Always learning.

Roman titus

Roman is a drop-out who learns by doing. Over the years, he's cultivated a healthy fascination with adaptability, utility and simplicity. His career has taken a wild and wonderful path through photography, street art, printmaking, physical and digital design and most recently fabrication. The accumulation of these skills and ways of thinking has created a gentle beast. Roman is a builder. He is cosmic. He says it like it is and calls 'em like he sees 'em. Don't take it too seriously. Life isn't that serious.
