What is this Refuse you speak of?

Refuse is a one-man design studio.
We build design systems, and like to keep things straightforward, fun, and accessible.
We believe that good design does not deceive, and that it serves everyone. We don’t force quirks that don’t fit, or break things just for the sake of breaking things; or not break things when we have to.

—Chris Do. Founder/CEO, The Futur.

I can’t claim to know how he did it, but after some Q & A, he handed me exactly what I was looking for. Funny thing is, I didn’t know what that was until he created it. I couldn’t have asked for a better outcome.
