  • Empathy - an intimate knowledge of the user and user's need
  • Strategy - a keen sense for what's really important, in both the short and long term
Doing it right requires
  • Thoughtfulness - action informed by your business and technology realities
  • Focus - the ability to remove distractions and do work
  • Iteration - the flexibility to iterate until "Right" approaches "Perfect"

SAN FRANCISCO-BASED SOFTWARE DESIGN & DEVELOPMENT

WORKING GLOBALLY SINCE 1992

By water

A 20-minute ferry ride from San Francisco is the fastest way to Digital Foundry. Grab a drink and enjoy the views of San Francisco, Alcatraz, Angel Island and the Golden Gate Bridge. Digital Foundry is just across the street from the ferry dock in Tiburon. Not a bad way to commute!

By road

Bike or drive to Digital Foundry from San Francisco, and take in the stunning sites around the Bay – the Golden Gate Bridge, Sausalito, and the water-front running paths in Tiburon. To find our parking lot, continue past Main Street to the traffic circle and take the last turn on the right. Then walk past the booth and across the footbridge to our office.
