Hello. We solve real problems with beautiful code & teaching. We are Collective Idea.

We are a small, agile software-development team driven to find solutions beyond code. Our code is great, and we’ll never denigrate it, but we understand code is a tactic toward a solution rather than a solution in itself. End result: we make our clients more productive and their processes more efficient.
