Designed to work
Good ideas are just the beginning. If you want to solve real problems, that takes work. There is no silver bullet—just clear goals and follow-through.
We’re here for you. We have helped international organizations and avid individuals understand and use design to break through old patterns and achieve lasting change by working better together. You can employ our expertise. We can train your team.
Tell us what you need. We’re listening.
Make your team stronger. We can improve your research, content strategy, and design skills. Or tailor a workshop (or two) to your specific business challenges.
Tap into years of experience with a Mule workshop. We provide hands-on exercises, best practices practice, and strategies to work better together.Next
When Wikimedia reached out for help with their Annual Report there was only one possible theme. Facts matter. In this Orwellian darkest timeline where facts are dismissed and the past is being rewritten before our eyes, Wikimedia is keeping the flame of objective truth alive. With volunteers across the globe, Wikimedia deals in facts. And we must protect their work, now more than ever.
Ten important facts from 2016 anchor the design of both the book and the website. The beautiful photos on the website were pulled from Wikimedia Commons. The beautiful illustrations within the book were made right here at Mule.Next

The people’s opera.
The San Francisco Opera is the crown civic jewel of our wonderful city. It’s a place where opera talent from all over the world comes to perform, but it’s also a place that employs a ton of San Francisco residents. From wig makers to electricians, to carpenters. San Francisco is a city that loves to make things. And no one makes things quite like the Opera.
Come see a show. Enjoy the drama, the blood, the betrayal, the intrigue. Meet your neighbors. See what they’ve been making.
We are proud to have done work with one of our city’s finest institutions.Next
We literally wrote the book on client services. And research. And design. We know what we’re talking about, and we’ll share it. Better informed clients and designers create better results. And we’re all after results.

For the birds.
The Audubon Society brings bird lovers together to enjoy and conserve the ecosystems we all share. With them, we pursued ambitious goals: to show why Audubon cares about birds and to get everyone, everywhere to care just as much.
Our design integrates organizational initiatives with award-winning editorial, invites participation, highlights grassroots activity—and above all, it teems with marvelous photos of birds.Next
