Trigger may be the biggest little interactive shop that probably has never been heard of. This amazing boutique shoots out web sites, online games, Facebook apps, and iPhone apps for major motion pictures like Spider-Man and District 9, and consumer brands like Nike and Red Bull. Combining a talented design team with solid software engineering, Trigger has mastered the integration of creative expression and technology. With offices in Los Angeles and Shanghai, they've found the elusive winning formula for East-West collaboration. This installment of Creative Inspirations takes viewers inside what may be a prototype for the next generation design firm.

All our projects probably run through, get touched by, both offices. Vivid Savitri: I'm actually always pushing my team harder because I know they can make it.
They just don't know it yet. Jason Yim: And we have very little time on this planet sort of thing, like let's try to make a difference. Carlo Decena: It's sort of reflection of our values that if we were successful, we made money, we wanted to give back. (Music playing)
