I'm happy to announce that Huge has recently opened its 10th global office in Toronto. Huge was founded on the belief that putting users first transforms brands and grows businesses. Our diverse UX team is the central nervous system of our practice and the trusted partner behind industry defining work such as HBO Go, Google's Material Design Guidelines, and Sport Chek's flagship retail experience.
We live with machines all around us. The fabric of our cities is made up of connected nodes that track weather, traffic, and commerce. These machines send us messages, tell us what to wear, show us entertainment, and monitor our behaviour. Our physical world is networked and made of code, and we usually don't even notice it. This is the programmable world, a world we now live in where everything is new media.
