Our mission is to help organisations, NGOs and schools in the design of sustainable projects and learning experiences creating positive impact.
We facilitate workshops and design sprints with your team to find collective solutions around complex challenges
We design learning tracks to help you engage your community of students, staff and partners around new areas of expertise
We share our expertise with on demand training formats to empower you and your team on design workshop facilitation
We promote a user-centered approach to innovation, placing people at the center of the design process and using creativity and cooperation as core principles.
Our user-centric methodology helps you solve any challenge from the perspective of your user by moving quickly from ideas to concrete prototypes.
Unlocking creativity to achieve your purpose and solve your challenges is at the core of all our workshops and learning experiences.
All our workshops and learning experiences are based on collective intelligence principles and exercices to smoothen cooperation.
Our methodology is based on Design Thinking: a team-based, iterative approach to innovation and continuous transformation.
INSPIRATION - IDEATION - IMPLEMENTATION
“Design thinking is a human-centered approach to innovation that draws from the designer's toolkit to integrate the needs of people, the possibilities of technology, and the requirements for business success.”
— Tim Brown, CEO of IDEO
HUMAN - BUSINESS - TECHNICAL
This approach brings together what is desirable from a human point of view with what is technologically feasible and economically viable.
It is a very hands-on, practical methodology that can be applied to design products, services, processes, organisation models and many more.
We focus on the design of impactful projects with various organisations
We are a group of entrepreneurs and designers with years of expertise in various fields such as media, food, industry, circular economy, social entrepreneurship and education.
