What’s Makr?

Humans do two things; we use tools and we tell stories. When you make something, you’re doing both at once— that’s a Maker.

We help makers—well, make stuff.

It could be helping;
a person gain a new skill to make something different,
a team work together so they can make a thing they couldn’t before,
a creative hub become stronger at executing their vision,
an organization grow or rebuild.

Organizational design helps folks become better creators, to envision what could be and to help them build the future way of doing things—designing their new story. 

Operations design helps folks get to their future, to have robust support systems and tools that get them where they want to go—to make and execute ideas.
