Approach

Creativity is the path to the future

Drive

Digital technology and the global market are changing our world at an unprecedented pace. Ideas spread in seconds, boundaries evaporate, leaving companies unprotected from global competition. Consumers are better informed, more demanding and they have the tools to communicate and shop globally.

This changing world holds huge opportunities. But companies need a methodology to turn these opportunities into products and services. Design is this methodology. Design is not an object, design is an action, a verb. Design is the process of discovering opportunities and turning them into usable solutions.

Battlefields

In order to innovate and to maintain an advantage there are many competitive arenas to be conquered. The holistic approach – inherent to design thinking – is written in our DNA. We will address every competitive arena: vision & strategy, brand, products & services, intellectual property, digital and sustainability.

  • Vision & strategy

    A clear vision and strategy will help a company and its employees to use its key strengths and to focus on the right targets.

  • Brand

    A brand helps customers to identify the company, its products and services. A brand adds value to products and services and it helps customers in their purchase decisions.

  • Product

    Products are no longer mere objects. They must offer a valuable user experience, which requires a design strategy and a fit with the company’s brand and values.

  • Service

    Services can stand alone or they can add value to products. Either way, services must be designed to be efficient and attractive, just like products.

  • Intellectual property

    As the world is becoming borderless and ideas spread across the internet in milliseconds, the protection of intellectual property is key to protect innovation.

  • Digital

    Digital technology is increasingly creating customer value. Digital channels are more than communication channels, they also serve as a sales channel, a service channel, a customer care channel and a delivery channel.

  • Sustainability

    Sustainability is not a matter of choice; it will become a license to operate. Companies building an advantage in sustainability will benefit from it as legislation tightens.

Co-creation in our “Vision on Creation” platform

We approach each challenge from a holistic point of view. In many cases this requires collaboration beyond the walls of our studio. To formalize this collaboration we developed our ‘Vision on Creation’ platform. Besides being a mindset, ‘Vision on Creation’ is a way to provide our clients with access to industry specialists, a legal and IP framework and collaborative tools to run their projects efficiently.

  • The Core

    The Core consists of a small group of senior professionals who take responsibility for the project and the client service.

  • The Advisory Board

    The Advisory Board is a mix of senior professionals from the finance industry, venture capitalists, innovators and entrepreneurs. They offer their invaluable experience and connections within the industry.

  • The Units

    The Units are industry specialists in the different competitive arenas. These are all independent senior consultants, who prove their value in the marketplace daily.
    The Units are engaged on a per-project basis ensuring the right expertise at the right time.
