Our Core Values


Quality over Quantity

No matter where we are in your project's life-cycle, we always want to be remembered for delivery quality when we design, write, and engineer. Nothing makes us happier than looking back at our work one week, six months or six years down the road, and be absolutely impressed with ourselves on a job well done.


Communication is everything

Our strength as a team depends on how well we communicate with ourselves and our clients on a regular basis. No matter how focused we are own our work, we must and will always communicate with each other and respond to questions with absolute urgency.


Approach with Empathy

We are a team of people that excel in what we do, and sometimes it can feel easy. However, we're reminded over and over that delivery exceptional projects is no easy feat - in fact, it can be downright hard. That's why and we approach each day with genuine empathy, honest and most of all, understanding.


Simplicity is King

It's one thing that we've learned over the past sixteen years, is that simplicity always wins out no matter what. Our process has been refined to apply simple, clear, and concise solutions from design to code. Because simple means, simple to use, simple to understand, simple to change, all adding up to huge cost savings and exponential growth.


Balanced Work Life

It's not about the Benjamin's, unless your name is Benjamin. We love what we do and it shows in our work - we want to keep that way. Our kryptonite is burn-out and so we encourage our team to work hard and also rest hard. That's why we have a no-overtime time policy and whenever possible, align work with strengths and interests so that work doesn't feel like work.


Absolute Transparency

Relationships are key to any successful venture. And for relationships to work, we constantly strive to make sure every team member has an absolutely clear picture of what a successful outcome looks like, a 100% view into our process, and tools in place to ensure feedback is timely and honest. And the bonus, work will become easier and more productive.

"On both a professional and personal level the Littlelines team has been an absolute pleasure to work with. They have been integral in spearheading multiple projects for us - coming up with attractive and intuitive designs based on our often rough suggestions. In many ways they have become an extension of our own team."
