"What is transformational about what we do is understanding what the role of development in a digital world really means for users - and how we can bend the arc of digital systems to social and economic empowerment. What we enjoy most in our projects is working closely with partners to understand the challenges and opportunities of emerging marketing digital economies and societies. Every new project requires original thinking, and original ways of working."
