A Design Studio — San Francisco, CA— SF, CA


Formed in 2000, Weightshift is an independent design practice, providing problem-solving capabilities within design, development, content, and ideation. Led by design director Naz Hamid and based in San Francisco, our clients and collaborators are some of the best in the tech industry, and it is a privilege to work with them.

Recently, we worked closely with Xero to design and develop a new Apple-featured iOS app called TaxTouch, which helps freelancers and independents manage their expenses and file their taxes. about.me relaunched after several months of close collaboration with their team to reconceptualize and reinvigorate the site and platform. The internal @gov team of long-standing client Twitter looked to us again to design and develop custom applications for TV display to be used during election cycles.

Let’s make great together.
