What We Do
We design innovative ways for people to learn. Our work equips foundations, public agencies, organizations, and academic institutions to discover insights, drive learning objectives, and craft new narratives.
Our work is rooted in two core beliefs:
Everyone should have the opportunity to learn and grow
Solutions are best found in true collaboration with the people who will benefit from them
understand what people want
Through asking questions and observing behavior, we get to the heart of what people want. We create a research plan, line up research planning logistics, conduct interviews to watch and listen for insights, and plan additional ways your team can immerse to gather information such as discovery trips and hands-on learning opportunities.
build vision for the future
By understanding desires and behaviors, we’ll frame opportunities to design new tools, programs, and experiences. We’ll test and iterate ideas with stakeholders who can help sustain new concepts, build team vision for what’s next, and map successful transition from present day to how the future will look.
bring new vision to life
With all aligned to bring strong ideas to life, we’ll collaborate to pilot new ideas to continue testing them and design branded messaging, curriculum, and communications to announce and sustain new offerings. This often results in the design of a new brand identity, learning kit, training, digital learning platform, book, or website.
For the most comprehensive results, we recommend completing all three categories of work; however, we are happy to customize our offerings based upon your specific needs.
Speaking and Facilitating
With backgrounds in education and teaching, we also offer thought leadership on organizing strong user-centered processes, design coaching, and storytelling. Whether you are looking for a keynote speaker or hosting a team training, we can tailor the discussion to your audience. Examples of speaking engagements and sessions we have offered include: Human-Centered Design 101, Understanding your Audience, Communication Design, and Prototyping for Discovery.
