Art, Heart & Technology
We create digital experiences with people in mind

Human-centered design

At Tenaka’s Tribe, we believe in putting the people we design for at the heart of our creative process — understanding their needs and challenges, instead of assuming. This helps us come up with successful solutions quicker, making people’s lives easier, simpler and more fun. This is called human-centred design or design thinking.

Tenaka was a young warrior that brought the many tribes of the Drenai together and instilled greatness in his tribesmen*. He inspired our name and, like him, we bring people, their skills and passions together and seek inspiration from the community to inform our process of creating digital experiences that make people's lives easier and more fun. We are the Tribe.

*'The King Beyond the Gate' was written in 1985 by David Gemmel and was the first appearance of Tenaka Khan.

The Tribe

Art, heart and technology: we do what we love, and we do it for the love of people. It has to be beautiful, functional and easy to use. It has to make life better.

We take client service very seriously, more seriously than we take ourselves — we’ve been known to skip a lunch for it.

We’ve also been known to dream big and shout loud. #dontmindus


Wander about the musings of a Tribe expressing the meaning we find in topics ranging from technology and photography to embracing limitations and living life deliberately. You might just wander into something that’s meaningful to you.
