Our mission We’re here to unleash the world’s creative energy by designing a more enlightened way of working.

Our story

We’ve always been obsessed with making work better for people.

Back in 2007, that meant designing a simpler way to keep files in sync. Today, it means designing a more enlightened way of working—on files, projects, and more.

Most “productivity tools” drain creative energy. They constantly ping, distract, and disrupt your team’s flow. And none of them connect, so you spend your days switching between apps, tracking down feedback. It’s busywork, not the meaningful stuff. We want to change this.

So we’re building a home for all your team’s work. A better way to stay in flow and bring your team’s best ideas to life. A set of tools that maximize inspiration and minimize distraction. 

So you can focus on what matters.
