Designing for social change
We work with individuals and organisations that want to create social change.
We’re a team of experts in fields such as user research, service design, and in digital design and development. We’re a design studio that works with individuals and organisations who are working to bring about social change. That might be charities, social entrepreneurs, government, funders, trainers, co-operatives, social enterprises, or corporate social responsibility departments.
We want to work with people who are creating real change and who care about impact. If you just want a new website to help you sell more shoes, then we probably aren’t the right studio for you. But if you’re working to improve the lives of your audience, drive behaviour change to create positive actions, or to influence those in power… we’d love to work with you.
We’re based in Glossop, just outside of Manchester City Centre.
We can work on projects based anywhere in the World.

What we do
We’ll work with you to understand your audience(s) better and figure out what their challenges are, it might mean looking beyond the audience and understanding the wider social or environmental issue to get to grips with where we can best make change. We have a toolkit of techniques that can get to grips with these complex problems.
We can work together to design the right solution, whether it be a product, service, campaign or initiative. We can co-design with an audience; prototype, build and test. It might be that you need a consultant through a long term transformative project or a product owner to assist with a build.
There are significant ethical considerations when tackling social issues. We can provide consultancy around the ethical dilemmas of your project and run product ethics workshops with your team or at your conference. We can help you measure impact and create an environment where continuous improvement thrives.
We want to make a positive social impact on the world. If that’s something you’re into as well, we’d love to meet you.
Whether you have a defined project or you just have the twinkle of an idea, give us a bell. We’re happy to work on joint consortium bids and proposals; our day rate is pretty reasonable and we’re mostly friendly. We’re also good at public speaking and media comments.
