How we do it

  1. Understand the People

    We constantly search for opportunities to enrich the lives of the end user. We seek stories from everyone - from the client to the end user, and unpack the journey. These stories are the keys that unlock deep understanding of a project. Simply put, what matters is listening.
  2. Define Opportunities

    As we unpack the stories we are looking for tensions, surprises and insights. By translating what we’ve heard and seen into defined opportunities, we create powerful areas of focus for ideation. What’s really happening? What are the unmet needs? Why are people behaving in this way? What really matters?
  3. Ideate

    How Might We…? This is the simple question that we ask. We use different methods and approaches to create a raft of ideas that address the unmet needs of the user. We focus on delivering meaningful experiences not objects. It’s about building on each other’s thoughts and inspirations.
  4. Prototype + Test

    Favoured ideas are selected, we then build prototypes and test them with users. What works, what doesn’t, what questions need to be asked? It's an iterative process, we build on what we learn and we learn from what we build. Does what we’ve created matter?
  5. Tell the Story

    In the end the best experience is a good story and we live for storytelling. We tell the story of the challenge and how it impacted the lives of our users. We tell the story of change and how we brought new meaning and delight. We tell the story of what matters.
