We develop strategies, concepts, ideas and visual formats for a cross section of clients ranging from start-ups to big companies, from individuals to institutions, from existing products to visionary concepts.* To identify potentials, dissolve painpoints and create effective solutions we conduct workshops and use co-creative formats inspired by techniques from experience design, mental-training, philosophy and art-therapy. As we believe in the power of learning, uniting people and doing things for the first time we also do and host talks and trainings.
