What We Value
Humans have the unique ability to imagine what someone else is thinking and feeling. Honing this skill allows us to serve clients, and their customers, better.
“Resist mediocrity.” One of our central tenets. It guides everything we do, from design to programming to project management.
Clients that are doing some form of good in their local community, or the world, are the kind we seek out. We tend to avoid those who aren’t.
We’ve guided clients through a lot of sticky situations. Those experiences taught us how to respond to every setback with constructive creativity.
The inspiration behind our logo
The concentric “C”s (for Cardwell) are pretty obvious for most. But our trademark offers a deeper view into our DNA. We think every brand mark should.
This motif reflects our deep roots in the Pacific Northwest, along with the values of self-determination, stewardship, and hard work we inherited from past generations.
Like the butterfly effect, the act of creating makes an impact for time to come, often beyond what you’re aware of. This possibility inspires us.
Stove Burner Coil
This man-made device is a symbol of ingenuity, and a reminder that heat is a catalyst. We’re not building stoves, but we do strive to make ingenious things that cause a reaction.
Broadway Commons: We’re proud to work in this special place, where people from around the community congregate to study, laugh, dream, plan and caffeinate. Our building emanates a spirit of collaboration and revitalization – a true urban oasis. Won’t you drop by?
