Background

How Lucidity Was Formed

Where we’ve come from sheds light on who we are and why we do what we do. We are a ragtag group of product developers with a broad range of experience developing products in different areas, and we share a common goal of making amazing products. We have come together to create a playground for product developers to do what we love most. We believe we’re building a very unique place where experimentation and risk taking is encouraged in our uncompromised pursuit of amazing products.
