Impact & Storytelling
We design and promote products and materials with a touching story and deep positive green impact. Sustainability grows faster from mouth to mouth.
We involve local partners in a collaborative circle, promoting re-purposing, re-use and implementing long lasting and flexible solutions.
Reducing amount of sources and teams involved we reduce shipping sources, distances and keep the project footprint low and simplifying the logistics.
A project kicks-off with collecting and processing input together with users and experts to set-up the right goals.
A solid design concept sets up an identity vision and guidelines for decision-making and moving forward.
With everyone on-board we plan we go deep in to the technical needs of the project and plan their implementation
We process and coordinate the communication between all parts involved, from managers to craftsmen and do cost and time planning.
We are there closely on site for coordinating the teams implementing the vision into reality, finding solutions, making it happen!
