… but more importantly, spend time with family eating and making good food. Binge on the latest must-see Netflix series. Explore and defend the possibility of life on other planets. Laugh loudly and smile as often as possible.

  • Gamify work productivity

    What if the same boring tool used to keep track of your day to day tasks, Asana, was connected to a leaderboard that kept track of your accomplishments and awarded you with badges for hitting milestones?

Tell someone you love them

How often do you take a break from your live feed digital life to remind people you care that about them? What if an analog friendly brand like Social Prints Studio created a site that gifted you with instructions to print and fold your very own Social Prints branded paper heart, free of charge, as a way to take a break from digital everything to create an artifact that you can use as a letter to send to someone you love?

  • Haven Web App
  • Simplify the complex

    In this digital age of all things Uber, sending something transnationally in a cargo shipping container should be easy, but for whatever reason, it’s not. What if we created a platform that made freight shipping as easy as mailing a letter? The Haven platform is just that.
