Pull Up A Chair

We’re pioneers that live on the bleeding edge of what’s possible.

We’ve been around since 2010, conceived as a game dev studio dedicated to training and mentoring college students in order to transform them from industry neophytes to accomplished professionals. In 2013, we pivoted away from outsourced game development, embracing our current identity of a team of experts in emerging tech ready for partnerships with like-minded souls. We’re like if Bob Ross were a futurist who made awesome tech; there’s a lot of empty space to work with and filling it is a joy before it is a chore. Your ideas, however intangible, are the foundations of better business and better technology. We believe that enough to partner with you to solve seemingly impossible problems.

We have a rich history handcrafting imaginative solutions to tech problems that live at the intersection of technology, games, and education. Leveraging techniques of gamification, real-world data harnessed in real-time, and experiential learning, we here at YETi CGI are passionate about connecting people with the world around them and the potential within them. When we invent a new platform to solve a problem, the world benefits from our labor. The scope of every project on the frontier of technology is practically illimitable.

When you think of technological innovation, the companies and individuals that come to mind are those with the capital and the passion to implement “someday” ideas in the present, futurists not content with waiting. And it’s a good thing, too: those projects that deal with hypotheticals – with solutions within frameworks that haven’t been conceived yet – are the driving force behind the broad-scale tech development of recent decades.

And that’s what we do here: dream with our boots on.

Josh Freeney

Technology Lead, Josh is a guru of programming and project development across a number of platforms. His areas of expertise are numerous: he’s the guy who knows a lot about a lot and having him as the technology lead is the cornerstone of YETi’s motility. Since he cut his teeth developing titles for AOL, Josh has run the gamut of development from mobile applications and social media to web-based and PC platforms. Josh spent several years as an instructor at Ferris State University teaching game development while, at the same time, perfecting his understanding of what’s impossible, what’s improbable, and what’s inevitable.

 

Ward Makielski

Design Lead, Ward has an extensive client history including Disney, Pixar, LEGO, EA, Mattel, Marvel, Cartoon Network, and Universal. Ward was also a faculty member and department chair at Ferris State University in Grand Rapids, MI in Digital Animation and Game Design.
