TC Labs is a project of the online magazine and arts organization Triple Canopy. TC Labs draws upon and helps sustain Triple Canopy’s expansive network of artists, writers, designers, and developers. Our work has received praise and accolades from The New York Times, Harper’s Magazine, The New Yorker, Design Observer, W Magazine, Paper Magazine, the American Society of Magazine Editors, and Wired.

What we do:


In a media landscape characterized by online content mills and perfunctory social-networking campaigns, Triple Canopy is known for material that is actually watched, read, and relished. We’ve employed groundbreaking Web design and digital tools to forge sustained experiences of literature and artwork online. Capitalizing on this work, TC Labs provides creative consulting and technology for businesses, institutions, publishers, and arts organizations. Our designers and developers excel at creating distinctive spaces for information to be considered, not just circulated.


Text is not filler, and it is too often treated as such. TC Labs works with renowned writers and editors who are experts at crafting rich narratives, making compelling arguments, and distilling complex information. We're meticulous in shaping the language and devising forms for innovative cross-platform initiatives and publication projects.


Events should be more than an opportunity to give away drinks and take photographs of a hundred strangers. TC Labs conceptualizes and produces projects that emerge from and feed back into your project. We bring together diverse communities to facilitate meaningful dialogues and generative interactions, be they artist-led seminars, educational workshops, urban excursions, literary readings, or synesthetic film installations.
