We partner with innovators to tell the story of who they are and craft what they offer into a cohesive digital experience.
We dream strategically
We dream big, but always tethered to reality. We believe that design is not a skillset, but a mindset that brings knowledge and imagination together to pave the way for new possibilities.
We co-labor purposefully
Collaboration is the only way we work. Through workshops we establish a think-different mindset and create space to work through challenges and develop great ideas.
We create minimum-viably
We think big, but always start small. We believe that ideas have no power outside of execution. Whether you are a startup or an established company, we help you take the first step.

Tino Chow founded Giant Shoulders because he believes that creativity and collaboration can disrupt the status quo for the better. He believes that creating things together is never a straight-line process: it twists and turns, shapes and changes, frustrates and inspires, but the synergy of collaboration multiplies productivity in a way that far surpasses what each of us can do alone. Tino spent a large part of his career building creative cultures and leading collaborative teams at agencies in New York and startups in Silicon Valley.
Before design, Tino served as an officer in the Singapore military. He then attended Rhode Island School of Design, where he co-founded a conference called Better World by Design, and went on to be selected as a TED Fellow. Tino also rode across the country on a bicycle for affordable housing, and occasionally you’ll find him speaking at conferences and schools.
