About Kalamuna

Kalamuna is an Oakland, California-based agency that specializes in communications strategy, user experience design and development. We’re a bunch of activists, artists, mathematicians, punsters and history buffs who were more likely to major in the humanities than in computer stuff. We’re voracious learners who take things apart, play with them, and see what we can make. And these are the reasons we’re great at making the Internet.

Our clients embrace curiosity, play and provocation to solve our most important problems. They’re nonprofit execs using the web to instigate. They’re government workers using mobile for a cleaner environment. They’re entrepreneurs offering sustainable products online. These people also like to tinker, to critique, and change the way things are. We believe this restless, rabble-rousing mindset is what gets anything worth doing done. Let’s Play.
