our process

From discovery to delivery.

With our 4-step process, we aim to provide you with a seamless and imaginative journey that delivers precisely what you desire.


At the beginning of the process, we'll start by discussing your vision for an AR effect.

If you already have an idea in mind, we'll dive deeper into it and explore ways to make it even more engaging and exciting.

If you don't have a concept yet, no worries! With our experience as designers, developers, and social media connoisseurs, we can help you come up with an idea that fits your goals, target audience, and brand.


Once you've settled on an idea for your AR effect, we'll create a realistic mockup of what the effect will look like.

This is an important step because it gives *you* the chance to visualize your idea in action and make any pivots before we begin development.

Once we get your final approval, we'll move on to the development phase, where we'll bring your AR vision to life.


During the development phase, we'll provide you “Iterations”, aka milestones that include video demos and working previews, for you to stay up-to-date and provide real-time feedback.

We believe that collaboration is essential to create a successful AR effect and we are happy to make any changes to ensure that the final product is exactly what you had in mind.


Once you’re completely satisfied with the final effect, we'll help you share it with the world!

We'll assist you in submitting and publishing your AR effect on your chosen social media platform(s). And once your AR effect is live, we'll provide ongoing support to ensure that it continues to function properly and meets your expectations.

It's go time!

Frequently asked.

What social media platforms do you support?

We specialize in creating custom augmented reality effects for all your favorite social media platforms, including TikTok, Instagram, and Snapchat. We can even replicate and publish your effect on multiple platforms!

However, it's important to note that the feasibility of an effect idea and its functionality may be limited to specific platforms. In these cases, we will work with you to find the best solution that meets your needs and fits the capabilities of the chosen platform.

How much will my project cost?

We understand that cost is a major consideration when bringing your augmented reality vision to life. Simply contact us and we'll send you our Pricing page, which outlines our different tiers.

Our goal is to offer competitive pricing and we're happy to work with you to find a solution that fits your budget and meets your needs.

How long will my project take?

We offer 2, 3, and 4 week timelines for our various tiers to ensure the best results and feedback experience. The more time we have, the more we can fine-tune and perfect your filter to meet your specifications and deliver optimal user experience.

If you're in a rush, we can create a custom filter for you in as little as one day, but it will incur an additional cost.So, let us know your deadlines when you contact us, and we'll work with you to make sure your filter is delivered on time and to your satisfaction.
