Free mindset cards: run more effective discoveries

2022 - a year in service design

This year we've honed in on creating better experiences across health services, government and education. People are the sum of their experiences so when we improve experiences, we improve lives. Better experiences for better lives. 

Here are a few highlights, a deep dive into some of our most fascinating projects and some articles sharing ways to increase the impact of discovery and user centred design.

Refer work to us and we’ll plant 100 trees

We’re busy scheduling projects for January 2023. Much of our work comes from referrals so if you know someone who you think would benefit from our approach to discovery and user centred design, please do send them our way! 

For every successful referral, we will plant 100 trees with Ecologi. That’s in addition to the trees we plant for every day of consultancy we deliver. More about our reforestation support scheme here.

Some plans for 2023
