REBELS WITH A CAUSE
Digital 55 is a collective of award-winning designers, developers, researchers, and content strategists working together to create unique, innovative digital interactive products and learning experiences.
We work with various not-for-profits, government agencies and companies on research, user experience, design, dev, content architecture, learning experience design and strategy, and digital interactive storytelling. What makes us most unique is our rebel spirit, rooted in interdisciplinary arts, such as music, film, design, learning and experiential builds. We are pretty much obsessed with the intersection of creative and tech.
We recognize the power of design to shape and transform the world around us-- and it is our goal to purposefully harness that power to design for good. We believe that everything is a learning experience and our commitment to producing human-centered, value-based digital learning products is reflected in our extensive & diverse portfolio working alongside multiple purpose-driven organizations, not-for-profits, and government agencies on issues as wide-reaching as:
- Equity, Diversity and Inclusion
