We don't make,
we co-create.

Our Method

In this highly collaborative process, you are as much a part of the project as we are. We are here to support you as we tackle challenges together — you, your mission, and the people you serve are the focus of the work we do.

 
 
 
 
 

Define

With you as our guide, we work with you to identify the opportunities and challenges that your organization faces and prioritize which ones to address.

 
 

 
 

Co-Create

Together, as your collaborator and partner, we build programs and services that meet the needs of the people at the heart of your work. You and your team will be actively involved in the project’s creation and have ownership over the outcome as we work together to build initiatives authentic to your mission.

Through a combination of remote sessions and in-person workshops, we will work with you to:

 
 
 

LOOK, LISTEN
AND LEARN

Examine the needs and desires of the people in and around the issue/topic, and uncover insights about their lives.

REFLECT AND
REFRAME

Explore new perspectives based on earlier insights, and identify one or two core challenges to tackle.

IMAGINE AND
IDEATE

Explore all possible and (seemingly!) impossible way to address the challenge, and then further develop and refine this exploration.

CREATE AND
BUILD

Take the best ideas and bring them to life, building prototypes for products, programs, or services.

TEST AND
IMPROVE

Gather feedback from stakeholders to see what can be improved. By sharing prototypes with the community, we can gain direct insight into the desirability, feasibility, and viability of the solutions.

 
 

 
 

Implement

Successful prototypes now become solutions, as these products, programs, or services move from testing into implementation. Most importantly, this process will build the capacity of your team to continue the initiative beyond our work together.

 
The perspectives you gain and the strategies you learn from the Co-Create stage will become a foundation for future problem solving and innovation within your organization.

The Studio brought us into doing the work, and by the time we left I really felt like I had contributed to the organization solving a problem.
