Nonfiction was founded in 2013 by design director Mike Scopino, a ten year veteran of the design and tech industry. Our name was inspired by Nonfiction's first unofficial office — the Newton Public Library — and our philosophy that exceptional design is rooted in objective facts and measurable results. Nonfiction has since expanded into a full-fledged team that operates with the polished craft of a boutique agency and the iterative attitude of a lean startup.
The Nonfiction studio is located in Boston's Seaport Innovation District. We are members of WeWork Fort Point, where we have access to a vibrant business community and Pongo the dog to keep us engaged and inspired.
To maintain the integrity of our work, here are the values we apply to everything we touch:
We focus on continuous learning to maintain a mastery of design in an evolving tech landscape
We evaluate and solve problems holistically with an emphasis on simplicity and clarity
We seek to understand and respect the needs of the people that will use the products we create
We step outside of our individual tastes and interests in pursuit of achieving measurable success
Our design services apply a well-honed process to every project, and it's this simple: we collaborate. We know our customers have an invaluable knowledge about their business. Together we create products that successfully balance design, business and technology.
Ultimately, we believe it's the unique vision and insights of our customers that drive the best work and blossom into remarkable results.
With your energy and insights as the fuel, we will:
