&yet is a company of individual and collective possibility where people can be creative, take risks, and grow.

We are an eclectic group of designers, developers, illustrators, writers, speakers, starters, and finishers.

We aspire to bring out the best in people and to make everything we touch better than it was when we found it.

We are a learning and growing organization, always looking for ways to do better and to build on the lessons of our past as individuals and as a team.
