Quilted is a worker-owned, cooperatively-managed company stitching together technology and social change. We take on work that challenges us to be more critical and insightful designers, engineers, and thinkers while remaining pragmatic and focused on adding real social value to our projects.
With an office in Berkeley, California we provide strategic consulting, graphic design, web development, as well as game design and development services to progressive arts, education, and non-profit organizations. We focus on standards based design and work with open source technologies - primarily Drupal.
Quilted is a team of energetic thinkers and reflective doers.
