Slidebean is rooted in our passion for design; we believe that great design can be applied to almost all aspects of life: from how people share and absorb information to everyday interactions with our environment, and experiences with other people. 

CONTRAST IS OUR COMMITMENT TO AIDING PROJECTS AND INITIATIVES THAT, LIKE US, BELIEVE IN GREAT DESIGN AS A WAY TO TRANSFORM THE WORLD WE LIVE IN.

An essential part of our team resides in Costa Rica, the birthplace of our founders. Having team members from Latin America make us sensitive to impactful causes from the region.

Every month, we invest 1% of our subscription revenue, towards people or organizations that are using design to generate impact in their communities and countries.

The institutions we support come from all over the world, but we pay particular attention to efforts focusing on North America and Latin America. Our customers nominate the projects we help.
