We are a design consultancy and innovation lab.

Massive digital disruption is accelerating the pace of change, causing unbounded complexity.

We help organizations grow and thrive as complexity dominates how companies are run, the way products and services work, and the environments in which people live. MAYA exists to make users feel powerful in an era of vast interconnectivity.

We tame complexity.

We build the connected world with human-centered design, an architectural approach, and research.

Human-Centered
Design

We focus on people first, and form interdisciplinary teams with clients and stakeholders to create a constant feedback loop. We move iteratively from a rough proof-of-concept to an end-to-end experience with real users so that our designs satisfy, delight and inspire.

Architectural
Approach

We believe that information architecture—a blueprint for the connections and patterns of interaction in a system—is critical to future-proofing a business. In complex, connected ecosystems, it’s not technology that binds products together, it’s information.

Research

We fund research efforts so organizations can benefit from understanding the challenges and opportunities of a truly connected world. We prototype future use cases for technology— where trillions of devices communicate with each other, and with us.
