What We Do

Company Values

Community First

We believe that businesses have a responsibility to the communities they work in and around. We seek to create positive impact in our community by taking projects that build Shared Value. It is our mission to ‘create products that enable and empower people’. We also donate 10% of our profits to organisations that are conveying positive social impact.

We believe in a growth mindset

We believe that it’s possible to learn anything we apply ourselves to. We encourage everyone at SEED to embrace this mindset and believe that one’s current situation does not confine or define our potential. We encourage our team and clients to commit to a growth mindset, allowing us to create smarter, kinder, better projects.

We are committed to excellence

We are perfectionists and strive to produce our best work in all aspects. We go to great efforts to ensure we are producing an outcome that will delight and excite our partners and customers. 

We are Transparent

We’re transparent around all company financials, as well as opening up internal processes, knowing it’ll benefit the community. We are always striving to evolve beyond our present capabilities.

People First / Trust Is Imperative

Humans and their skills go hand-in-hand with our processes and tools. We place the wants and needs of people at the centre of designing great solutions.

GOOD Partners / Clear Boundaries

Our collaborators work on projects that benefit and delight their customers. Clients need to believe in and be committed to all projects. We don’t over-promise in outcomes or delivery date, and we don’t work weekends.

Team

SEED is a multidisciplinary product development team, of highly skilled and creative individuals, which seeks excellence in the products it builds.
