Our Mission

Empowering Changemakers To Improve Lives

For more than 25 years, we’ve helped organizations embrace human-centered design. Our work supports and influences government agencies, nonprofits, and businesses with a social impact mission. Together, we connect people to information, benefits, and services that are critical to their lives.

We don’t just fix products or create experiences—we transform organizations. Our experts teach leaders and professionals at every level how to understand customers and put their needs first. Through rigorous research and design, we ensure our partners change in a way that upholds their credibility and protects the people they serve.


Our Story

Growing Expertise in Human-Centered Design

Anthro-Tech was founded in 1997. Our journey began with a desire to study the human experience and shape technology around it.

Today, we have locations in Olympia and Seattle, Washington, as well as a diverse team of specialists across the United States. Each of us is united by a common purpose—to build a great business that makes things better for people.

Our Core Values

A Manifesto

Help Others Succeed

We take a team-ori­ent­ed approach to suc­cess. Through knowl­edge shar­ing, close col­lab­o­ra­tion, and proac­tive com­mu­ni­ca­tion, we enable oth­ers to do their best work.

Set The Bar High

We account for every detail and pre­pare for all pos­si­bil­i­ties. Our high stan­dards help us deliv­er work that shows we care.

Be Optimistic AND Face The Brutal Facts

We always look for real­is­tic solu­tions. Even in dif­fi­cult or uncer­tain sit­u­a­tions, we see oppor­tu­ni­ties for progress. Our con­fi­dence moves us forward.

Continually Learn and Grow Expertise

We con­sis­tent­ly push our­selves to do bet­ter and embrace new ideas. Reflec­tion and revi­sion are the first steps to achiev­ing our future potential.

Passionate About Making an Impact
