“People ignore design that ignores people”

—Frank Chimero


Envoy is a messaging platform that facilitates impactful communication by allowing control over the context in which a message is delivered. The sender can place a message in a specific moment by defining tags for time, location, and/or an event. Working as a series of building blocks, Envoy gives the sender unlimited options for when the message appears. Envoy utilizes data from mobile devices and our knowledge of each other’s habits for new and expressive interactions among friends.
