The firm's blog, which can be accessed from the firms main site, allows for team updates to be easily shared. The blog also allows an inside look at what goes on behind the scenes. MASS creates edgy, functional and sustainable designs that serve to better communities. The firm also creates clear and informative graphics that communicate ideas and are pleasant to read. Their work is currently on exhibition in the BAC's McCormick Gallery at 320 Newbury Street.
