vision

Design is a never-ending process for change

We engage in service design, design management and develop design strategies.
We know how to match the right designers to different types of design challenges (design match-making). We also conduct specialist workshops in areas such as: Design Thinking, Service Design, Visual Thinking and Design-Driven Innovation.

design management

We assist with how you might differentiate your product or service through good design

We realise design audits and develop detailed analysis, which demonstrates how your company (or institution) may employ design on a daily basis. We develop recommendations and help come up with a plan for developing design strategies within your organisation. We showcase how you may differentiate in the market place through well designed products, services and visual communication. We employ Design Thinking as a systematic approach to innovation by identifying opportunities for incorporating design into organisational culture.

service design

We seek simple solutions
based on real human needs

We run projects using the service design thinking approach.
Service design involves integrating all elements that a user interacts with while using a service (so-called touch points). We develop efficient solutions based on the real needs of users, outlined through adequate research. We support companies that plan to change client service processes, want to create an outstanding experience for their customers, plan to introduce new ways of engagement. We simplify communications through the use of visualisation. We realise all our projects in close collaboration with our corporate and institutional clients, where dedicated teams follow through on all stages of the design process.

design match-making

We match the right designers to specific challenges

Design is a very wide field and designers represent many different competencies. Often, companies and organisations, which want to commence collaborations with a designer, don’t know where to start, how to identify the right designer or a studio. We help to specify which design competencies will be needed for a project and suggest a designer or a design company, with the right experience, abilities and personality, that will work best for your needs.

workshops

We encourage new, creative ways of working

We have extensive experience in conducting workshops on Service Design, Design Thinking & Visual Thinking (use of visualisation in your daily work). Our workshop offer is aimed at companies and institutions, which aspire to work on projects using designers’ methods and tools, as well as those who are ready to create and implement innovation. We run workshops based on our ready-to-go scenarios, as well as develop bespoke training programs.
