Our vision in 3 steps

Making abstract ideas tangible.

PLAY. Explore and envision

Playing with concepts, ideas and materials is key to any creative process. Utilising lean research and ideation techniques, we explore possible directions for tackling the challenge at hand.

think. reflect and decide

After coming up with a few possible directions, we focus on one or two. We brainstorm with the project stakeholders and specialists to figure out a practical way to realise and test our vision.

make. CONCRETE DECISIONS, FAST.

Using rapid prototyping techniques we create a testable product. Using this prototype we can test our assumptions with real users, to learn if our direction is right.

Resources

Everything we have learned so far, in a nutshell.

Is this really everything??? Well, of course not. But you have to start somewhere. Everyday we dedicate time to learn new things from brilliant people. We read books, listen to podcasts, watch YouTube videos and have lunch with amazing people. Whenever we hear something that changes our perception, we want to shout out and tell all our friends about it. As you are one of our friends, we hope you'll enjoy this uniquely curated content.
