We moved from London in November 2021 and we’re now based in West Yorkshire, we’re in easy reach of the M1, M62 and A1 if you want to meet us and we’re always happy to chat on Zoom if you're unable to reach us.
We stopped offering a prototyping service, mainly due to our new location but mostly because it was not working well, because of Covid 19 travel restrictions.
We're in love with Procreate and the iPad Pro - as well as offering training in this app, we're working on specific footwear design assetts and these will be sold via our website.

It's been an exciting year so far, for us and our entrepreneur clients!
