We invent and build experiences.

Every new or emerging platform is an opportunity to create novel and compelling experiences–for entertainment, marketing, education, and commerce. Headcanon is focused on delivering meaningful innovation in emerging Voice platforms and immersive technologies, and on the invention of new, related commerce and marketing models.

Headcanon is a creative collective.

New platforms and the invention of experience.

IT’S IN OUR BONES

For millennia, from tales told in the cave drawings of Dordogne, to campfire sagas and the comedy and drama of traveling theater troupes, through the advent of books and the revelation of photography and moving imagery, we’ve invented ways to entertain, enlighten, and inform one another by constructing stories and experiences.

PLATFORMS EVOLVE

Stories are essential to that ongoing evolution. Now, as ever, the means of storytelling is evolving: on the Web, on richly-instrumented mobile devices capable of augmenting reality, and in the experiences delivered by Voice platforms like Alexa, and Google Assistant. They converse with us, telling us tales, sharing knowledge, extending our agency across the web.

INVENTING EXPERIENCE

This confluence of new and meaningful experiences made possible by new platforms is where we at Headcanon have lived for decades, and what excites and animates us still. And we’re excited to know what we might do together.

 

What We Do

Building new experiences that traverse the boundaries of voice, web, and the real world.

Voice app development

Voice, a fast-growing and evolving set of technologies, is a particular focus for us. We’re immersed in voice app design and development for both entertainment and marketing.

targeted invention

Our principals are accomplished media, commerce, and information inventors with numerous shipped products, and scores of patents. We invent what needs inventing.

User-centric Experiences

We are pioneers in postlinear storytelling: incorporating both linear and non-linear, interactive experiences to deliver deeply engaging narratives that place the user at the center of the story. We’d like to see how that might work for you.

voice design and UX

With expertise in developing Alexa Skills and Google Actions, we’re bringing our decades of  building new experiences in a range of platforms to new audiences at home, in the car, and on the go.
