The Skoshbox Japanese snack subscription box is founded on pure delight. From the initial website visit to the bright packaging and tasty products, Skoshbox sought out a cheerful and stress-free experience for their customers.
Their business quickly took off in 2014 – and their existing ordering and fulfillment process (a Frankenstein mix of Wordpress, eCommerce plugins, and lots of hard work) couldn't keep up. That's where we came in. We partnered with Skoshbox to design and build the tools they needed to scale their business.
We enhanced the Skoshbox website, maintaining their unique and vibrant aesthetic every step of the way. We also built dozens of new features, including a tighter integration between subscriptions and shop purchases, reviews, gift subscriptions, waitlists, and more.
As a result of our partnership, Skoshbox was able to increase their business exponentially, while providing a smoother experience for their customers every step of the way.
Find out more about our partnership above.

The designers and front-end developers at Planet Argon started transitioning from Fireworks to Sketch in early 2015. I can do most of what I want to do in the Sketch quickly, efficiently, and intuitively. There are, however, a handful of Fireworks features that I would love the Sketch developers to emulate.

Several months ago, our team left Campfire and entered HipChat for all internal conversations project, team, or cute kitten related. There are a few great things about using HipChat, but one of my favorite’s as a designer is this; adding a swatch of any HEX code. This feature not only provides my teammate with the code to add for a color, but also provides more context when we are collaborating. It’s a small thing, but sometimes, the small things just make life a little better.
What are the small things you like about the tools you use?
