These are exciting times: mobile, social, web and TV are constantly in flux, shifting and recombining to create new opportunities for agile storytellers. So whether we're designing a history of the planet as a socially-networked ebook, an interactive guide to Korean Art for the Smithsonian, a non-profit transmedia campaign, or a collaboration with a cable TV series, Arcade Sunshine always brings top-shelf production values and experience working with multiple technology platforms to every project we take on.
