Involution Columbus Teams Up with Test Double for Open Office Hours

by Jon Follett

Since June 2012, Involution has held weekly Office Hours, opening our doors to the public every Thursday afternoon from 4 PM - 6 PM and inviting anyone with a design issue or project to come by the studio for help. We've conducted these Office Hours at both our Boston and Columbus locations.

Over the past year and a half, we've had the privilege of meeting and assisting dozens of entrepreneurs, technologists, dreamers, and doers, working on interesting projects we probably would have never seen otherwise. Along the way, we've even inspired others to open their doors and hold office hours of their own. One of these groups is Test Double, a local Columbus agency of developers that helps businesses build custom software. We've partnered with Test Double on projects and are happy to count them as friends and colleagues. So, we're pleased to announce that, starting Thursday, December 5, 2013, Test Double will be joining us for Open Office Hours at Involution Studios Columbus to offer their software development expertise.

Both Involution and Test Double have a track record of solving complex business problems — using our design and development expertise to produce well-crafted products that matter. So, if you have any design or development related questions, or just want a different perspective on your current business problems, come chat with us (and now Test Double) every Thursday from 4 PM - 6 PM at Involution Studios Columbus. As always, we talk with people on a first-come-first-served basis. We're looking forward to seeing you soon.

Take a look at what some recent Office Hours attendees are saying:

"I just wanted to thank you and your team for your suggestions. Sometimes, as owners, we're too close to our projects. It can be easy to miss the glaring weaknesses that are apparent to others. I feel our meeting saved a disastrous product launch. For that, I thank you. We have refocused our app ..."

"Thanks so much for opening up Involution Studios tonight. What a wonderful opportunity! Please give your staff our sincere thanks for staying after work and for the generosity of their time, attention, and advice. Very cool! As we were driving in tonight, Ted and I were talking about what we hoped to gain from our time. You and your staff certainly delivered. We drove home with a clear understanding of our next actions. You also helped validate some of our assumptions, which was great."

"Just wanted to drop you and your team a sincere thank you. I enjoyed meeting everyone there at Involution Studios and really appreciate the time you spent just kicking around ideas and talking. Have a great day!"

"Hey, I came to your guys' office hours two weeks ago with the photo marketing app. ... I'd like to thank you for the absolutely amazing advice."
