Retail + Consumer Products

We fight against the massified production. Each person is unique and deserves original things!
Thumbs down to the boring, industrialized, untasty stuff. Embrace creation, originality, personality!
Every voice, song, bark... Has its own soundwave graph, which travels travels through space and arrives to our ears.
The drawing of the wave is captured and transformed into a tot-em, forever.
You create your own symbol, you create Tot-em.

OnRout is an optimization platform for parcels. Routing individual parcels to the most efficient carrier for delivery; driving route consolidation, lowering costs for carriers & shippers, & taking trucks off the road.
