Design with a Social Conscience?

What does Design with a Social Conscience mean?

Some people have wondered about this catch-phrase or slogan. Design. Social Conscience. Not what you usually put together, and seemingly unrelated to a web site design company. We disagree. Our philosophy is Reach Globally, Design Locally, paraphrasing a well-known saying intended to reflect the idea that our local community is part of the global community.

One way we like to Reach Globally is by donating a portion of our earnings to Kiva, a non-profit organization with a mission to connect people through lending to alleviate poverty. Leveraging the internet and a worldwide network of microfinance institutions, Kiva lets individuals lend as little as $25 to help create opportunity around the world.

After all - we're all in this together...
