Addepar: The operating system for our financial world.
Addepar’s goal is to create one “operating system” for the financial world. One platform that can manage any asset, any currency and provide real-time value and reporting and insight. Working together with Teak, we partnered with Addepar to create a positioning, visual identity system and brand story to clearly define their purpose, engage their audience and (in their words) change the financial world. We completely re-imagined their website and developed all content, including a documentary series featuring their clients and the visionaries behind the company as well as engaging and educational product overview and tutorial videos.

Instagram Filter Creator Releases Litely a Photo App for iOS
Cole Rise, photographer, designer and developer of the majority of Instagram’s photo filters has just released his first photo app, Litely. Cole has a unique perspective on digital photography, social sharing and app design that has influenced his work as developer/photographer and Litely has been designed to embody his philosophy of the simple, subtle and natural. He believes that digital images and camera phone photos specifically should not be caricatures of themselves but beautiful works of art, proudly shared and made to last the test of time.
We are proud to be a part of his launch and feel that that Litely for iOS will change the way consumers think about their images by helping them take better photos with their phones and other digital devices.

Google Nexus 7: Fear Less

Google Nexus: New Website
As part of the evolution of the Nexus brand and product line, Google asked Autofuss to redesign the Nexus website. Historically Nexus had been a single line of mobile phones and the existing microsite suited this product lineup. But as Nexus started to build a range of products including the Nexus 7 and Nexus 10 tablets while at the same time continuing to launch phones, their site needed to scale with the brand. At the same time, Nexus was moving from a brand targeted at developers using the Nexus phones as a reference development platform to a brand for mainstream consumers. With this in mind Autofuss, in a development partnership with Redshift and UNIT9, re-imagined the product site as a full fledged brand site for the Google Nexus family of phones and tablets.
