Capabilities
Co-Creation

We are experts in co-creation and providing professional education to build capabilities in Design Innovation. All our workshops are designed to introduce participants to design innovation, its contribution to value creation, and hands-on exercises to train design innovation methods while co-creating for the next big project.

Prototype-driven
User Discovery

We believe that breakthrough insights emerge from immersing users in stimulating experiences. This is why we will build-in mini prototyping iterations and 4D sprints to stimulate user experiences and quickly test disruptive ideas. The latent needs that are revealed are fed back into Discover and Define phases to assist us to realise deeper insights and foresights that have greater potential.

Design-Engineering
Business

Design Innovation sits at the sweet spot of design innovation, with the right mix of design researchers, business professionals and engineering veterans who can deliver a desirable, viable and feasible vision and strategy. With our blend of design, engineering and business expertise, our team has helped multiple industries design and adapt for sustainable, technology-led disruptions.

Let's see how we can work together.
