Investigative Design humanizes data and processes so we can get to the heart of the opportunity.
What is Investigative Design?
Imagination & Creative Capacity
Investigative Design opens our minds to see more creatively, and beyond what we think we know. Sometimes it just takes a different perspective, person, or place to spark the next big idea.
Field Research & Diverse Data
Investigative Design focuses on acquiring and using high quality data from diverse sources. Understanding human behavior, emotional intelligence, and rigorous field methods helps us focus on the goal.
Co-Creation & Design Thinking
Investigative Design fosters a co-creative mindset for building solutions in a safe-to-fail environment. By literally using our hands, we can design new solutions that can be experienced immediately.
Investigative Design actively addresses our blind spots to understand the bigger picture.
