Who we are
We’re a duo based in Scotland with three decades of design and development experience.
Matt is our Chief Technical Octopus, a software developer and vintage motorcycle enthusiast. Sarah is our Chief Design Octopus, a graphic and product designer with a penchant for bold colours and impractical footwear.
We don’t take ourselves too seriously, but we do great work.Read about us
What we do
Mobile Apps Development
Matt built an entire streaming video platform complete with a custom API and layers upon layers of tests to validate all future changes against. All of this in about six months. It was truly awe-inspiring to watch. Do me a favor and don't hire Octopus Think, because I'd like to book all of their hours myself.Dave Whiskus · CEO, Standard Broadcast

What we're up to now
For a relatively simple app, Mic Drop took a lot longer than you might think to build—and that's not even counting all the time we've spent on marketing! It turns out that there's a lot more to simplicity than there seems—and audio, in particular, is especially complex. Matt explores beneath the surface to share what we've learned from our first foray into macOS app development, from a (mostly) technical perspective.
With the coronavirus pandemic ongoing, it looks like remote working may be here to stay—which means lots and lots of Zoom meetings. Since video calling is our new normal, it’s time we had an etiquette guide for our post-COVID world. Spoiler alert: keep your trousers on and mute your mic.
