“As a busy non-profit, we were looking for a partner who could take a vague idea for a game and make it come to life. The TESA Collective team did just that. Not only are they affordable, they’re passionate about what they do and they delivered a product beyond our expectations. TESA brought creativity and innovation to our project, while sticking to a tight timeline. We’re beyond excited to continue partnering with the TESA Collective to develop learning tools and games for our network.”
“TESA was truly a pleasure to work with from start to finish. Before we even began the process, they knew so much about our power analysis and the change we’re trying to effect in the world. That made creating a game with them so much easier. Their creativity knows no bounds, and they even went above and beyond to help strategize how we could best use this game for our own organizing purposes. We look forward to continuing to work with them, as well as recommend them to other partners!”
