We Are Dalton+Anode.

[an-ohd] – positive, a way up

History & Mission.

Anode was founded in 1991 with the vision that every product we create should tell a story with a beginning, middle and an end. Our mission is to provide our clients with creative, technology-driven solutions to educate, entertain, and motivate their target audience.

We are thinkers and makers who are passionate about blending media, stories and technology. We explore and apply new ideas; transforming challenges into engaging and memorable experiences. We use digital technology and visual information design to surprise and delight people of all ages—and subsequently change the way they look at objects and information, encouraging shared experiences and exchanges.

positive impact in our community.

We’re not just great designers and programmers, we’re darn good citizens and local community supporters too! Anode means “positive; a way up.” We try to live up to our name by finding ways to make a positive impact in our local community. Each year we donate our time and financial support to clients and local organizations that align with our principles by using technology and design to create and build new experiences for worthy causes. Sure, we look for focused impact through established events, but we also know that every once and while, a little hands-on fun is a good thing too.
