With Urbanscale becoming a looser network of associates, Mayo Nissen and I will now be offering our services as near/far studio. It’s been a pleasure working with Adam at Urbanscale, and we look forward to partnering with Adam on current and future engagements.
With near/far, Mayo and I are broadening our focus beyond the unique problems of networked cities to encompass diverse industries such as publishing, healthcare and technology. As we began developing our vision for near/far, we realized that our interests lie in the intersection of the macro and the micro. We both have deep experience in making things (in my case, software, and, in Mayo’s, physical products), yet we also bring to our work an understanding of the larger context in which products and services are made and how to balance the forces present at all scales. Further, we are privileged to be able to draw from our amazing network of friends, professionals with specialities in everything from geospatial analysis to ethnography to content strategy. Together, we are pleased to offer our clients a unique and far-reaching perspective on their customers, products, services and strategy.
If this sounds like something you or your organization might be interested in, do get in touch with us. We’d be delighted to discuss how we can be of service.
