Who We Are
We Are Better Together.
Studio C&G Inc. was named after the two of us, Christina and Gabe, and grew out of a belief in being better together. We had just gotten married and were living a typical 9-to-5 life in Calgary with a house filled with computers, gaming consoles, tablets and handheld devices. To say that we loved technology was a bit of an understatement. We loved to try new apps, new games, and new gadgets, but we’d sometimes give up on what was otherwise a great concept because we needed to Google how to make the thing work.
We knew these apps, games, and gadgets could be better. We knew that these businesses wanted to do better. We knew that while helpful, user reviews and comments didn’t always translate into actionable items. We knew that asking for help from a big firm was not only expensive, but could turn a user review into just marketing mumbo-jumbo.
We also knew we could do better. That we could help these business do better. More importantly, we honestly think businesses and the people who run them deserve better.
Using our combined experience in software development and social research, we help businesses deliver nothing short of awesomeness. We build user experiences that are beautiful and focused on people, because we are champions of user equality and users are people too. Whether it’s an app, a website, or a graphic, as long as people are engaging with it, we can make it. We promise it will be clean, simple, and intuitive and we’ll even tell you why we've designed it that way, because you deserve to know and should be proud of it too. We’ll tell you what users want without all of the marketing mumbo-jumbo, listen when you have ideas, and get excited about the things you do.
Because user experiences can be better. Your business can be better. And we are better together.
