The Hive

The Hive - Collaborative project, 2014

At MICA, designers are trained to be generalists. We are authors and producers,
researchers and developers, illustrators and copywriters; we work on projects from
concept to completion. To subvert this process we have formed The Hive,
a highly specialized agency. Like in a bee colony, each person has a distinct, siloed role.
We stay within these roles and pass our finished materials down the chain, neither
discussing nor interfering with others' work. 

For the conference, we presented our agency's website. The site shared our
philosophy and described our process, talking a bit about each of our specialists.
